By

CAMDEN, N.J. — At an unprecedented meeting with student leaders from all nine South Jersey Catholic high schools, Camden Bishop Dennis J. Sullivan asked, “How can I guide you, and how can you guide each other? Be honest. … there is no agenda here.”

In the shadow of the recent Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 dead, Bishop Sullivan welcomed the student leaders to the Camden Diocesan Center March 1.

St. Thomas More uses late-game run to advance to girls basketball semifinals

By

Dialog reporter

NEWARK – For much of the first half of the DIAA girls’ basketball quarterfinal matchup March 4 between Hodgson and St. Thomas More, things weren’t going the fifth-seeded Ravens’ way. Two starters flirted with foul trouble. The normally reliable three-point shooting had abandoned them. And Hodgson’s high-scoring Kayla Braxton-Young was in a rhythm from the outside.

But the players from the little school in Magnolia stayed close to the fourth-seeded Silver Eagles, trailing by just four at halftime. The Ravens held Hodgson to just four free throws in the third quarter, turning that deficit into a four-point lead entering the fourth quarter, and they were able to hang on for a 52-47 win at the Bob Carpenter Center.

Salesianum comes close but falls to Sanford in boys quarterfinal

By

Dialog reporter

NEWARK – Salesianum took a two-point lead over Sanford in the teams’ meeting in the DIAA boys’ quarterfinal round on March 3 at the Bob Carpenter Center, but the Sals could manage just two more points over the final 5:03. The seventh-seeded Warriors, meanwhile, put up 10 points in the same span and moved on to the semifinals with a 42-36 win.

The final lead came courtesy of Darnell Vaughan. With his team trailing by one, the junior drove the lane for a short field goal. He was fouled and completed the three-point play, but that 34-32 advantage would be short-lived. Corey Perkins restored the Sanford lead with a three-point shot 75 seconds later. Read more »
