By

Dialog reporter

 

Salesianum will begin the process of reclaiming its state title in boys lacrosse Tuesday night at Baynard Stadium. There, the top-ranked Sals will host No. 16 Delmar in the first round of the state tournament at 6 p.m.

The Sals enter the postseason with a 12-3 record, with all three losses coming to out-of-state teams, including one of Canada’s top squads. The other losses were both by one goal. Salesianum played a schedule heavy on non-Delaware competition; among First State foes, the Sals defeated St. Mark’s twice, along with Wilmington Friends, Cape Henlopen and Caesar Rodney.

Cape scored a major upset last May when the Vikings beat Salesianum for the state championship. They are the second seed this season and will open Wednesday night at home vs. No. 15 Smyrna.

Other Catholic high schools in the field include Archmere and St. Mark’s. The Auks (13-2) are seeded seventh and host No. 10 Sussex Tech at 5 p.m. Wednesday. St. Mark’s finished the regular season 7-7, which earned the Spartans the 13th seed and a trip to No. 4 Tower Hill on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

The other first round matchups include No. 8 Delaware Military Academy vs. No. 9 Wilmington Friends; No. 12 St. Andrews at No. 5 Appoquinimink; No. 14 Concord at No. 3 Caesar Rodney; and No. 11 Dover at No. 6 Milford.

The quarterfinals will be played Saturday at the home of the higher seed. The semifinals are May 27, and the final will take place May 29 or 30. Salesianum’s graduation is set for May 29.

Tickets to the semis and final will be available at diaa.ticketleap.com. Admission to first- and second-round games is $5. The semifinals are $6 and the final $7. The championship will be streamed for a fee at www.nfhsnetwork.com. DIAA tournament apparel is available at diaa.teamip.com.

Padua dominates at state Division I track meet, wins 16th state title

By

 

 

Despite losing the best sprinter in Delaware for much of the meet, Padua Academy had no trouble defending its Division I outdoor track and field state championship May 16 at the new Dover High School. The Pandas outdistanced their nearest competitor, Middletown, by a wide margin, collecting 199 points to the Cavaliers’ 76.

Maiya Dendy, the all-state runner headed to the University of South Carolina next year, was hobbled by a hamstring injury that may have cost her wins in two events, but the Pandas were plenty deep enough to overcome the injury. Dendy did manage two victories, in the 400-meter run and as the anchor of Padua’s 4×100 relay team (with Cameron Lucey, Darby Deutsch and Jordan Sobolesky). Read more »

Voge fires blanks in Auks diamond win at Tower Hill

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON — Joe Voge scattered seven hits and struck out six in a complete-game performance as Archmere grabbed a 7-0 win in nonconference baseball Thursday afternoon at Tower Hill. Voge improved to 7-1 on the season, and the Auks are 14-3 with one game left in the regular season.

The senior righthander was in serious trouble just once during the game, and that came in the second inning, when Tower Hill loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a walk. But Voge buckled down and retired the next two hitters on a foul pop up to first base and a ground out to first base. That preserved a 1-0 Auks lead; Colin Lynch had scored an unearned run in the top of the second on a two-out single by Danny Bannon. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

Two Catholic schools, St. Mark’s and Ursuline, are among the 10 teams that have made the girls’ lacrosse state tournament. The brackets were released Wednesday night by the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association.

Ursuline is the eighth seed with an 11-4 record. The Raiders will open the playoffs Saturday at home at noon at Serviam Field vs. No. 9 Middletown. The two teams did not meet during the regular season. The winner’s reward is a trip to top-ranked Cape Henlopen on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Cape is the six-time defending state champion, building a dynasty well-known in the lacrosse community but not so much upstate. Ursuline met the Vikings last season in the second round. Read more »
