Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Salesianum had a 13-0 lead over top-ranked Middletown midway through the second quarter of the teams’ football showdown on Oct. 13, but the visiting Cavaliers scored three different ways on their way to a 19-13 win in front of a sellout crowd at Baynard Stadium.

The teams were tied at 13 when the second-ranked Sals sacked Middletown quarterback Drew Fry on a fourth-and-six deep in Salesianum territory with 4:47 to go in the third quarter. On the second play of the Sals’ possession, however, Cavaliers defensive back Tamar Teagle stepped in front of a Zach Gwynn pass and returned it 40 yards for the decisive touchdown. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – The weather on the afternoon of Oct. 12 took a turn toward the cool side, but the Archmere field hockey team’s offense was cooking. The Auks controlled the ball from the get-go and scored a 4-0 win over Newark Charter in Diamond State Athletic Conference action.

The visiting Patriots earned an early penalty corner, but after that it was all Auks. Archmere had six penalty corners in the first 13 minutes of the game and nearly scored three times on the first five of those, as one shot clanged off the post, another was sent over the net and a third resulted in a kick save for Newark Charter keeper Madison Soyer. They finally found the back of the cage on the sixth, as Olivia Baldi ripped a shot from the top of the circle at the 16:45 mark. Read more »

Brendan McGivney returns to Wilmington school he attended, imparting his love of English, writing

 

WILMINGTON — Brendan McGivney knew he wanted to be a teacher. It just took him a few years – and thousands of miles – to get there.

McGivney is in his second year as a full-time member of the faculty at Ursuline Academy in Wilmington, where he teaches English and social studies to eighth- through 10th-grade students. He feels right at home at the school, which is girls-only at the middle and high school levels. And, just as he was inspired by teachers in his past, he is now inspiring others, including sophomore Maureen “Reenie” Carroll. Read more »
