Mount Mercy applies to 2 leagues

Mount Mercy University has applied to two leagues for conference membership for the 2015-16 school year and expects to learn in January or February if it has been accepted for membership into either one.

Mount Mercy is currently a member of the Midwest Collegiate Conference, but that league is disbanding after this school year. The Mustangs applied for membership in the Chicagoland Conference earlier this year, but they fell one vote short of admittance.

Scot Reisinger, the athletic director at Mount Mercy, declined to identify the leagues it hopes to join, but the options are fairly limited in terms of an NAIA conference that serves the Midwest. He said one of the leagues will vote in January whether to admit the Mustangs and the other league will vote in February, assuming the Mustangs are still looking at that time.

Reisinger said he is "very confident" Mount Mercy will be accepted by one league or the other - or possibly both. "We've gotten good feedback," he said.



Herb rakes in conference honor

Abby Herby of the Mount Mercy women's basketball team has been named the Female Athlete of the Week by the Midwest Collegiate Conference.

Herb, a sophomore, was named the MVP of the Roosevelt Holiday Hoops Tournament in Chicago this past weekend. She averaged 31 points in the tournament, including a career-best 35 points against St. Francis (Ill.). She shot 65.8 percent from the field.

Herb, a Cedar Rapids Washington graduate, also had 13 rebounds, eight assists, seven blocks and three steals.
