Farmington Hills Mercy's volleyball team again reigns supreme in the Catholic League.
The Marlins defeated arch rival Bloomfield Hills Marian to capture their first Catholic League tournament title in six years Monday night at Madonna University. Mercy needed four games -- two of which went overtime -- to get past the Mustangs, 25-19, 27-25, 29-31, 25-13.
Mercy's last two Catholic League titles -- in 2011 and 2010 -- were also against Marian. The Marlins now own eight tournament crowns in program history.
Veteran head coach Loretta Vogel said it is a very satisfying feeling to have regained the Catholic League title.
