By

Dialog reporter

 

MILLTOWN – St. Elizabeth rebounded from a sluggish first half to take control in the second half to defeat St. Mark’s, 44-35, in Catholic Conference girls basketball Thursday night. With the win, the Vikings swept the season series with the Spartans and improved to 9-2 on the season.

The Vikings trailed by six at the half, 19-13, but they turned the game around by scoring the first 11 points of the third quarter. They did so with a smothering defense that caused several turnovers, along with control of the glass on both ends. Read more »

CLAYMONT – “Defense wins games” is a key saying in any sport, and it rang true in Archmere’s 32-22 nonconference girls basketball victory over Conrad on Feb. 4.

The Auks held high-scoring Conrad eighth-grader Julie Kulesza to seven points, 11 below her season average. Archmere junior Maggie Malloy said the help defense was tremendous in making that possible. Read more »

WILMINGTON – When Justin Perillo walked into St. Ann’s School on Feb. 3, he wasn’t greeted like a professional athlete, which he is. The Green Bay Packers tight end is more of a friend to St. Ann’s. He dished out some high fives to students he knows before getting hugs from teachers and other staff members at the Wilmington school.

Perillo visited with the kindergarten, first-grade and fifth-grade students for about a half hour during Catholic Schools Week. He discussed playing in the NFL and also attending Catholic school – he is a graduate of St. Catherine of Siena School. Read more »

WILMINGTON – Fifth-ranked Appoquinimink traveled north on Feb. 2 to meet No. 8 Salesianum, and the Jaguars scored a 50-46 overtime win in a defensive struggle that featured more turnovers than made field goals.

The Sals got off to a fast start behind five points from Kasai Guthrie, including an old-fashioned three-point play. The 7-2 lead quickly faded as the Jags’ Myles Cale took over with Salesianum big man Tariq Ingraham on the bench. Included among Cale’s points was a thunderous dunk that gave Appo an 8-7 lead after the first quarter. Read more »

It takes three overtimes, but Pandas outlast Conrad

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – It took Padua more than three and a half quarters to finally gain the lead against Conrad, and it would take a lot longer than regulation to keep it. The extra work was worth it, however, as the Pandas evened their record with a 58-51 triple-overtime win over Conrad on Friday afternoon in Wilmington.

For three quarters, it looked like the young Redskins – who feature just one senior, along with three freshmen and three eighth-graders – would pull off the road victory. They controlled the rebounds all day, turning the second and third chances into putback points and driving through and around the Pandas. Behind the scoring of freshman Jordan Rook and eighth-grader Julie Kulesza, they led by as much as 34-23 late in the third quarter after a seven-point run. That is when the Pandas began the turnaround. Read more »

CLAYMONT – Padua traveled to Archmere on Jan. 27 and defeated the Auks, 49-35, in a game pushed back two days because of snow. The rust showed in the first half, as both teams struggled to score. Archmere had been off for 12 days, while Padua was idle for a week.

The Auks jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead as freshman Emma McCann hit a jumper and Maggie Malloy followed with a layup. Padua rebounded with the next six, taking the lead on a pair of free throws by Megan Mallon. That lead was short-lived as McCann hit a three-pointer. The Auks led, 9-6, after one. Read more »

St. Elizabeth High School seniors practice art of conversation while preserving stories of generations past

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON — Everyone has a story, and students at St. Elizabeth High School have taken steps to get some of those stories recorded for posterity. Seniors in Joan Mangan’s AP English class took part in the Great Thanksgiving Listen 2015, for which they interviewed another person to learn his or her life stories. The interviews are posted online at www.storycorps.org.

Several students talked to people they already knew – or thought they knew – their grandparents, including Tiara Tanzilli and Dylan Gerstley. Both said they found the conversations with their subjects – Tanzilli’s grandmother, Rose Eastburn, and Gerstley’s grandfather, Jack Hogan – to be revealing. Read more »
