CLAYMONT – Archmere football coach Jerry Ambrogi saw that St. Elizabeth would take away the outside running game, so he turned to the middle. And the Vikings, missing injured linebacker Eric Patton, could not stop the ground assault as Archmere ran to a 49-7 win Saturday morning.

Auks quarterback David McCrae ran for two touchdowns and threw for three more as Archmere improved to 9-1and guaranteed itself a Division II playoff berth. The win was a measure of revenge for Archmere, which lost, 35-0, to St. Elizabeth in last year’s Division II final.

WILMINGTON – From the reaction on the field Friday night, you wouldn’t know that St. Mark’s football season had most likely just ended and Salesianum would be moving on to the state playoffs next weekend.

Jabre Lolley’s third touchdown of the game, a 6-yard run with 42 seconds left, gave the Spartans their first lead of the game, and any hopes of a last-minute Salesianum comeback were dashed when St. Mark’s senior T.J. Yeninas picked up a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and sprinted 25 yards into the end zone, giving the Spartans a 28-17 win in the annual battle Friday night at Baynard Stadium.

Eppes has high hopes for Auks in state volleyball tournament

By

CLAYMONT – Good volleyball teams are nothing new at Archmere Academy. In the last three state tournaments, the Auks have been seeded first, second and third. The only thing to escape their grasp during that time is a state championship.

That could change this season, as Archmere once again is the top seed in the 16-team bracket. Cara Eppes, the Auks’ senior setter, believes this year’s team is capable of earning a trophy at Sunday’s final at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark.

All Saints wins first CYM sports championship

By

The girls cross country team at All Saints Catholic School won the 2011 Catholic Youth Ministry championship, which was held Oct. 30 on a 2.25-mile course at Bellevue State Park in north Wilmington. It was the first title for the new regional school, which opened this year from the merged Corpus Christi, St. Catherine of Siena and St. Matthew’s schools.

The Crusaders finished with 28 points, followed by St. Mary Magdalen with 45. The other teams, in order of finish, were St. Elizabeth, St. John the Beloved, Ursuline, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Immaculate Conception and St. Anthony of Padua.

St. Edmond’s Academy was the boys’ winner, defeating All Saints on a tiebreaker. Both teams finished with 36 points, so the winner was determined by the placement of each squad’s sixth finisher. St. Edmond’s sixth runner placed 16th, while All Saints’ came across in 18th. The other teams, in order of finish, were IHM, St. Mary Magdalen, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Elizabeth, Christ the Teacher, Immaculate Conception and St. John the Beloved.

All Saints produced both individual champions. Caroline Foley topped the girls with 13:06.36, while Michael Flanagan crossed the line in 12:05.34.

Complete results are available at the CYM website.

Staff reporter

ELKTON, Md. — The summer checklist for some high school students might look something like this: roll out of bed around 11, check Facebook, go to work, hit the pool, catch a movie.

For most, it does not include raising money for backpacks and school supplies for more than 500 children, unless you are part of the Kemp family of Immaculate Conception Parish in Elkton, Md. Beginning with Erica 10 years ago, then Laura Jeanne, Caroline and now Bryson, the drive now provides new school supplies to more than 500 children each year.

“We consider this serving the Lord,” said their mother, Mary.

Knowledge now falling into the laptops of Archmere students

By

Staff reporter

CLAYMONT — When Archmere Academy administrators informed students last year that each of them would be receiving a laptop from the school beginning this year, Kelsey Kushner was not impressed.

“I thought it was the worst idea ever,” the senior said last week. “I was so used to taking notes, that was the way I studied, and I didn’t want to change anything, especially not for senior year.”

Kushner said she had found the requirement to have a laptop a distraction at her previous school, but her outlook is changing as the program evolves at Archmere. “It’s just easier to have everything in one spot.”
