By

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Ber’Nyah Mayo has done much of her damage this season for the St. Elizabeth girls basketball team from the outside, raining down three-point shots on the Vikings’ opponents. But on Feb. 16 against Conrad, the No. 1-ranked team in the state according to 302Sports.com, Mayo went inside, to great effect.

Mayo took a cross-court pass from Arianna Henry and drove into the lane, splitting three defenders and putting up an off-balance scoop shot off the glass for the last two of her 30 points, giving St. Elizabeth a 55-53 win in front of an electric crowd at the St. E Center. The fourth-ranked Vikings grabbed perhaps their most impressive win of the season, while the Red Wolves suffered their first loss to an in-state foe. Read more »

Three score in double figures as St. Elizabeth boys topple shorthanded Sanford

By

Dialog reporter

HOCKESSIN – The St. Elizabeth boys’ basketball team showed up at Sanford School on the afternoon of Feb. 8 to face a Warriors team that had won 10 straight after opening the season 1-4. But the team on the court for Sanford barely resembled the usual cast of players, as several members of the varsity squad sat on the bench in street clothes.

That did not matter to the Vikings, who were in need of a win after dropping four of their last five. They took advantage of their shorthanded hosts and left with a 67-42 win. Junior Jordan Brown, who led St. Elizabeth with 17 points, said they couldn’t worry about who and who was not playing for Sanford. Read more »
