A high school that has a long standing rivalry with Bellevue High
, a school with a better football team, better academics, better location, better parties and better people. Unfortunately Mercer Island continues to try to compete with it and so continues to be publicly humiliated. Most people who live on the island go to Bellevue or Seattle for dining, shopping, or any form of entertainment, since none exists on the island itself.
The people from Mercer Island thought it would be cool to bring a flag to their away game, but it was broken by the home team when the pre-pubescent MI students got too rowdy.
