St. Thomas More girls suffer first loss on trip to Hodgson

By

Dialog reporter

 

GLASGOW – St. Thomas More made a valiant comeback effort on Dec. 9 at Hodgson, but in the end, the Ravens missed on too many opportunities, and Hodgson came through when needed to take a 45-36 nonconference girls basketball victory.

The young Ravens played with just eight girls, only one of whom was not a freshman or sophomore. St. Thomas More gave the Silver Eagles too many second and third chances on offense, and numerous Ravens shots would not fall as they fell to 1-1 on the season. Sophomore Kayla Braxton-Young, after being held scoreless in the first quarter, led the Silver Eagles the rest of the way, putting up a game-high 18 points. Read more »

Sustaining Hope for the Future funds are helping to improve parish facilities throughout the diocese

It sounds like a Christmas list — a new rectory for St. John the Apostle Parish in Milford, a renovated parish hall for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Bear, an air conditioning system for St. Bernadette in Harrington.

However, those renovation and building projects and others in process throughout the diocese are being delivered without Santa’s help. Read more »

Ursuline basketball has talent to repeat, but Raiders know target is on their backs

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON — The 2015-16 season ended with Ursuline cutting down the nets at the Bob Carpenter Center after the school’s second straight state championship, but coach John Noonan said the Raiders have work to do if they want to complete the hat trick.

“The kids who haven’t played a lot, they don’t understand that teams want to beat you,” the veteran coach said. “I tell them, ‘When you lose, people run out on the court.’ That’s not fun. We don’t want to let people celebrate like that.” Read more »

Sals hold off William Penn, win basketball home opener

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Two teams that look quite a bit different than they did last season met Tuesday night at Salesianum, and the host Sals proved to be a step ahead of William Penn, topping the Colonials, 58-48. It was the home opener for Salesianum and the first game overall for Penn.

William Penn, returning just one starter from last season’s team that went 18-4, was able to move the ball in the first half but did not have the shooting touch, trailing by 16 at the break, 30-14. The Sals, meanwhile, were hot from the outside, sinking three three-pointers along the way. One of those belonged to senior Mike Kempski, who had eight points, all in the second. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT — The Auks struggled through a 7-13 season in 2015-16 and eye a return to the state tournament this year under veteran coach Bill Ludlow. He will depend on point guard Andrew Pinto, who is entering his third year on varsity, guard Colin Lynch, the team’s second-leading scorer last year, and Kevin Olsen, Sean McGonigle and Marc Gorum, role players who will be counted on to contribute a bit more. All are seniors. Juniors Adam Barksdale, Ryan Walsh, Tyler Faulkner and Sean Kelly will “hopefully step up this season and help the cause,” Ludlow said. Read more »
