Attending Century High School (Sykesville, Maryland), Mercer captured three state championships; a Class 2A-1A title in 2009, followed by a pair of 3A-2A titles in 2010 and 2012. Competing for the Knights varsity team, Mercer gained Conference Player of the Year honors in 2012 along with a spot on the Under Armor All-America team. She would graduate with 208 career goals.


In her sophomore season (2014), Mercer would start in all 24 games for the Terrapins, earning a spot on the ACC Championship All-Tournament Team, while gaining her first IWLCA All-America nod (third team). Of note, the Terrapins would move to the Big Ten in 2015. On March 11, 2015, Mercer would score her first goal in NCAA play, also registering an assist against Towson.

Heading into her senior season (2016), she was recognized as one of the team captains. Statistically, she ranked second on the Terrapins with 31 caused turnovers. In addition, she registered 39 ground balls and 16 draw controls, respectively. Mercer would finish the season as one of five Terrapins players (including Taylor Cummings, Nadine Hadnagy, Zoe Stukenberg and Megan Whittle) to earn spots on the IWLCA All-America teams.
