Our Lady of Mercy High School won our Rochester Rocs contest for most school spirit!
Hundreds of young ladies joined News10NBC in the Mercy High School gym this morning when we announced the winner live on the air.
Mercy beat out Aquinas, Le Roy and Webster Thomas with 40-percent of the vote.
Senior Sarah Bronk said, “This is a big deal for us. We all said if there's a spirit contest, Mercy needs to be in it for sure because within ourselves, we have a lot of pride that we have so much spirit and it's really part of our Mercy identity.”
We asked the girls how they got more than 136,000 votes and they say they got the word out to students, families and alumni.
People all over the country were voting in this contest and that dedication and spirit got them the top spot.
