Football News

They may be a private school that doesn't make a lot of athletic noise but they are very well established.

Mercer has eight mens teams which include the aforementioned football and basketball teams.

However they also boast a baseball team, a soccer team, lacrosse, tennis, golf and cross country.

They also have a nine women's teams. They play exactly the same except football, but also boast softball, volleyball and track and field to the mix.

Overall Mercer have won 19 championships in their Atlantic Sun conference across all the sports and genders.

Thankfully none of them are in dancing which was displayed rather vigorously after their win.

But this won't be the last you see of the name Mercer. An investment into their athletic programme of over $40 million dollars and NCAA sponsorship will see them do more in the future, you can bet.
