Archmere comebacks pave way to state volleyball championship

By

Dialog reporter

 

NEWARK – Zoe Akoto had a host of important points this season for Archmere Academy, none more so than the two that ended the 2014 state volleyball championship final against the Charter School of Wilmington. First, with the fourth set in extra points and the score tied at 27, Akoto painted the sideline with a smash. Then, leading 28-27, on match point No. 4 inside the raucous Bob Carpenter Center, Akoto again had an open lane down the left side.

The sophomore returned the push kill with one of her own. A few Force players threw themselves in the direction of the ball, but the kill found the floor, and fifth-seeded Archmere completed the mild upset of undefeated and second-seeded Charter, 3-1, for the championship. The sets were 25-10, 16-25, 26-24 and 29-27. Read more »

Padua advances to the semifinals, where it will meet three-time defending state champion Cape Henlopen.

The fourth-seeded Pandas and fifth-seeded Warriors were evenly matched much of the first half.

The goal was unassisted. Read more »

MILLTOWN – With their season hanging in the balance, the Archmere volleyball team surrounded the free ball that had just been sent over the net by Delaware Military Academy. The ball dropped outside the sideline, and the players rejoiced in a combination of elation and exhaustion. The Auks had won the fifth set against DMA, taking the second semifinal Thursday night at St. Mark’s, 3-2, after coming back from a 2-0 deficit.

With that, Archmere (14-4) advanced to Monday night’s final, where they will play undefeated Charter School of Wilmington at approximately 6:30 p.m. at the Bob Carpenter Center on the University of Delaware campus.

Set scores were 21-25, 21-25, 25-22, 25-23 and 15-11. The match took more than two and a half tense hours. Read more »

Volleyball: Pandas come up just short vs. Charter in semifinal

Dialog reporter

 

MILLTOWN – Charter School had Padua down, 2-0, in the first semifinal of the girls’ state volleyball tournament, and the Force was within four points of sweeping the two-time defending champion. But the Pandas fought back, taking a tough third and a dominating fourth set, to send the match to a fifth and deciding set.

It was a scenario Charter had not faced all year. The Force had lost just two sets total in their first 17 matches. Olivia DiMaio said her team needed to stay the course.

“Just take it point by point, don’t get ahead of ourselves and keep our heads right,” the senior hitter said. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

MAGNOLIA — The seeds for St. Thomas More Academy were planted more than 25 years ago, shortly after Holy Cross High School closed in 1987. That was a decade or more before almost all of the current students were born.

The present was connected with the past on Oct. 23 as several of those responsible for STMA’s existence returned for a Founders Day Mass with Bishop Malooly and to share the story of how St. Thomas More came to be. The only Catholic high school south of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal has made great strides since opening in 1998, when 17 sophomores and 34 freshmen composed the student body. Read more »
