Proud parents

The Rev. Darin Mency and his wife, Mrs. Helen Mency, are excited with the continual success of their son, Dee Mency, who continues to show his basketball skills at Merrimack College and has led his team to victory after victory after victory.

According to the Merrimack College Men's Basketball November Newsletter, in the game against Holy Family, Dee had his career-best, 31 points, which lead his team to an 87-81 victory.

According to the stats, Dee had a slam-dunk (during a 7-0 Merrimack run), hit seven 3-pointers and hit a pair of free throws in the final 14 seconds to secure the win.

And this is just some of the stats. Previously, he was the Northeast-10 Freshman of the Year.

His mother wrote, "Darin and I are so proud of what Dee has accomplished thus far in his college career both in the classroom and on the basketball court. It was a big transition for him to attend college so far from home. He always had us to talk with when there was a problem and cheer him on at every game in the stands. He had to adjust not having that on a consistent basis. Instead he has had to use the values and beliefs that we instilled in him as he matured from a boy into a young man. It gives us comfort as parents to know that we have provided him with the appropriate guidance and love which has allowed him to mature into a well respected and successful young man and athlete."

Keep blazing the trail and doing what you're doing Dee! We're watching you and your parents couldn't be more proud!
