Holly McCoy was one of just a few women in the ranks when she started her job as athletic director at Omaha Mercy 38 years ago. Now that number will shrink by one. McCoy is leaving behind that part of her job to concentrate on being the assistant principal for student life and director of non-athletic activities. 

York (6-1) defeated the Omaha Mercy Monarchs in the consolation game of the York Holiday Tournament 72-37 on Wednesday afternoon.

The Class B No. 4 Monarchs jumped to a three-goal lead less than six minutes into the second half, then withstood a furious rally by rival Omaha Duchesne for a 3-2 win in the girls state soccer tournament at Creighton’s Morrison Stadium.

All-girl Omaha Mercy will become a member of the River Cities Conference starting this fall after many years without a league affiliation, school officials said Monday.
