For the second year in a row the sixth-grade student at Immaculate Conception School decided to donate all his birthday money to “Pennies for Patients,” a school-based program sponsored by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Maryland. Read more »

Moving their games (next year) up the Blue Route

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Adrianna Hahn and Donte DiVincenzo both have a state basketball championship, more than 1,000 points scored and numerous highlight videos on YouTube. And when they graduate in a few months, both will be playing college basketball in the Big East Conference at Villanova University.

But despite the similarities, Hahn and DiVincenzo are two unique people who have gone through high school under different circumstances. They sat down at Salesianum recently to chat about their high school accomplishments and what lies ahead. Both have earned scholarships to Villanova– just a coincidence, they said. Read more »

Matchups between ranked teams dominate week in girls basketball

By

For The Dialog

 

Halfway through the high school basketball season, the girls’ schedule includes some battles involving top-10 teams that make you wish you could be in two — or more — places at once.

Tuesday

No. 3 St. Elizabeth (7-4) at No. 6 Padua (9-2), 7:15 p.m. The Vikings are coming off a big win over Caravel and go for the season sweep over the Pandas. Padua, however, has won four in a row since their loss to the Vikings.

St. Mark’s (5-4) at No. 4 Caravel (5-4), 7:15 p.m. Both teams come in struggling. The Spartans have lost their last three, while the veteran Buccaneers have lost two straight. Only one of Caravel’s losses has come to a Delaware foe.

Thursday

No. 7 Hodgson (10-0) at Padua, 7:15 p.m. The Silver Eagles are not just undefeated. They have hardly played a close game, with their narrowest victory being by nine points over Archmere.

St. Elizabeth at St. Mark’s at 7:15 p.m.

Caravel at No. 1 Ursuline (10-1), 7:15 p.m. The Raiders have been dominant this year behind player of the year candidate Adrianna Hahn, but the Buccaneers feature multiple all-state candidates. This is the Raiders’ first home game of the season.

Friday

Delaware Military Academy (6-4) at St. Thomas More (4-5), 5 p.m. The Ravens are coming off a loss to Archmere.

Conrad (2-6) at Archmere (6-5), 6:15 p.m. The Auks nearly pulled off an upset over Padua last time out.

Saturday

Archbishop John Carrol (Pa.) vs. St. Elizabeth at Springford High School (Pa.), 12:30 p.m.

Cape Henlopen (4-6) at St. Mark’s, 2:30 p.m.

The Hun School (N.J.) at Padua, 3 p.m.

Cardinal O’Hara (Pa.) vs. Ursuline at Springford High School (Pa.), 3:30 p.m. This is Ursuline’s eighth and final out-of-state opponent of the season. The Raiders are home for five of their remaining six games after this one.

Catholic boys basketball heats up in cold January

There are several compelling games on the schedule this week, including a meeting of archrivals in a showdown Friday night.

Tuesday

Conrad (5-4) at St. Thomas More (4-8), 5 p.m. The young Ravens look for their fifth win against a very good team.

No. 1 Sanford (8-3) at No. 6 St Marks (9-2), 5:15 p.m. This is the Spartans’ toughest stretch as they take on the top-ranked Warriors. The Warriors have won six in a row, while the Spartans have won eight straight.

Archmere (4-7) at Tower Hill (3-7), 5:30 p.m. The Auks have played better recently and look to get a win against a Hillers team that plays hard.

No. 5 St Elizabeth (8-3) at Smyrna (6-3), 7:15 p.m. The Vikings hit the road to battle an athletic Eagles team.

Thursday

St. Elizabeth at Archmere, 6:15 p.m.

Friday

No. 6 St. Mark’s at No. 4 Salesianum (6-6), 7:30 p.m. The Spartans will attempt to end Salesianum’s long home winning streak in the latest holy war matchup, but the Sals are better than their record indicates. Salesianum defeated St. Mary’s of Manhasset, N.Y., on Monday. It’s probably a good idea to get tickets in advance for this one.

DiVincenzo scores 1000th career point as Sals ease past Tatnall, 64-37

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – The gymnasium at Salesianum School might be named after the late Oblate Father John Birkenheuer, but on Tuesday night, as he has done so many times over the past three and a half seasons, Donte DiVincenzo made it all his own.

The senior scored 25 points, including the 1000th of his storied career at Salesianum, as the Sals overwhelmed Tatnall, 64-37. The young Hornets stayed close for a quarter before the Sals – in particular DiVincenzo – established order and put the game away with a huge second quarter. Read more »

Third-ranked Sanford turns back No. 4 Vikings, 53-43

Dialog reporter

 

HOCKESSIN – St. Elizabeth fell behind Sanford, 8-0, in the opening four minutes of Monday afternoon’s girls basketball matchup in Hockessin. The Vikings rallied to close the gap and managed to tie the game on five separate occasions in the third period, but the Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter to win, 53-43.

Defending state champion and third-ranked Sanford, playing its first home game since the season-opener on Dec. 6 vs. Appoquinimink, used the inside game of Chrishyanah Alston (21 points) and the shooting of Taylor Samuels (13) to earn the win. The Warriors also scored from distance, getting three three-point shots from Ayanna Thompson and two from eighth-grader Lauren Park-Lane. Read more »

Many happy returns: Holy Angels seventh-graders make right moves in winning Univ. of Delaware’s Stock Market Game

By

Dialog reporter

NEWARK — If playing the stock market is on your to-do list for 2015, there’s a group of seventh-graders at Holy Angels School in Newark who could offer some sage advice. The four students, members of the school’s Stock Market Club, were the winning team in the University of Delaware Stock Market Game, defeating 99 other teams of fellow middle-schoolers and high school students.

In the Stock Market Game, teams were given a hypothetical $100,000 to invest over an eight-week period from mid-October through mid-December. The team that showed the greatest profit was the winner. About 25 Holy Angels students, under the guidance of social studies teacher Keith McKenica, participated. Read more »

Sals tough one out, grab 66-52 win at Archmere

By

Dialog reporter

CLAYMONT – After falling behind Salesianum, 49-36, at the end of the third quarter Tuesday night at the Moglia Fieldhouse, the homestanding Archmere Auks decided it was time to make their move. The Auks used a three-point shot by sophomore Andrew Pinto, a host of free throws and some effective pressure defense to steadily cut into the lead. When senior Peyton Heck swished a three-pointer midway through the fourth to make the score 54-47, Salesianum coach Brendan Haley had seen enough and called a timeout.

Whatever Haley said had the desired effect. On the Sals’ next possession, senior guard Donte DiVincenzo took the ball on the Sals’ next possession, saw a lane and drove to the hoop for an impressive stuff, and Salesianum went on to a 66-52 win that was closer than the final score might indicate.

WILMINGTON – Freshman Maggie Connolly drilled two three-point shots in the opening 90 seconds as Ursuline raced out to an 8-0 lead and never trailed in a 59-40 Catholic Conference win over St. Elizabeth Monday night at the St. E Center.
The Raiders, coming off a 2-1 effort in last week’s Diamond State Classic in the same gymnasium, had their shooting stroke going throughout the first half, scoring 20 points in each of two periods. After Connolly’s two treys, junior Kailyn Kampert got on the board on a 10-foot baseline jumper before senior sharpshooter Adrianna Hahn joined the scoring. Read more »

Pandas ride shooting of Mallon, Julian to win over Milford

By

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – After watching her team come out flat against St. Elizabeth on Saturday, Padua coach Emily Grugan was looking for a bit more jump in the Pandas’ step when they took the court Monday afternoon against Milford. An hour and a half later, the rookie coach was smiling as her team put 20 points on the board in the first quarter and dismantled a good Buccaneers team, 66-41.

“We came out very flat against St. Elizabeth, 23-6 in the first quarter, and that just can’t happen. We really worked on that at practice, starting fresh, starting intense and sharp, and I think the girls did that well. They executed the game plan very well at the beginning,” Grugan said.
