WILMINGTON – Padua got off to a good start Feb. 4 against the Hun School, but the visitors from Princeton, N.J., took control in the middle quarters to earn a 53-41 victory.

Michelle Kozicki paced the Pandas in the first quarter, scoring six points, two of which came on a nice runout where Haley Scott found Kozicki with a length-of-the-court pass. Anna Maguire kept Hun in it, scoring nine of the Raiders’ 13 points as Padua had a two-point advantage after one.

Hun forward Juda Jones caused problems for Padua beginning in the second quarter. Padua’s Bella Julian hit a corner three early on, but Hun climbed back into the game. The Raiders took the lead with 3:18 to go when Jones drained a three-point shot and was fouled on the shot. The four-point play put Hun in front, 22-20. The score was 22-21 at the half.

A short run to open the third made it 28-23 in favor of the Raiders, but Julian hit another three to close the gap. That would be the Pandas’ only field goal of the quarter, however, and Jones scored eight points as Hun took an eight-point advantage into the final stanza.

Padua tightened its defense in the fourth and rediscovered its scoring touch, but could not close the gap. Hun’s lead grew to 14; forward Alexis Howell had eight points in the quarter. Jones finished with 23 for the Raiders, while Howell and Maguire added 11 each.

Julian led the Pandas with 13; Kozicki and Cam Scully each contributed eight. Padua (3-11) is back in action at home on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. against St. Mark’s.

Brown’s three-pointer caps Sals’ comeback over top-ranked Mount Pleasant

By

Dialog reporter

 

PENNY HILL – With the clock winding down and his team trailing Mount Pleasant by a point, Salesianum sophomore forward Jack Brown knew what he had to do. Mike Kempski had driven into the lane, attracting three Green Knights defenders, when he kicked the ball out to Brown beyond the three-point line.

Brown calmly squared up and released the ball, which swished through the net a second later, and the Sals had a 39-37 lead with 33.2 seconds to go. The Sals played the necessary defense on Mount’s final two possessions, and they escaped with an upset road win over the state’s top-ranked team on Feb. 4 in front of a raucous, sold-out crowd.

“Be the light where you are” Bishop tells St. Mark’s students

By

Dialog reporter

MILLTOWN – During a visit to St. Mark’s High School on Feb. 1, in the middle of Catholic Schools Week, Bishop Malooly encouraged the students to live the theme of the week: “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”

“Be the light where you are, and it leads to the joy and happiness of eternal life,” the bishop said during his homily.

“Faith and action in service are basically the second command: Love your neighbor as yourself.”

School is probably the primary place for students to live out their lives of service given how much time they spend there, he added.

He called Catholic schools a blessing, and at the beginning of Mass, two faculty members and several students addressed their peers about why they feel fortunate to be getting a St. Mark’s education. Marie Flynn, a theology teacher and a 1980 St. Mark’s graduate, said she has been involved with Catholic education as long as she can remember, from grade school to St. Mark’s and Villanova University, then teaching in eight different Catholic schools.

“They’ve provided a spiritual foundation, one that has sustained me,” she said. “It’s a place I can continue to share all God has given me.”

Student Emma Saxton said she is the sixth member of the family to be a Spartan. “It means being in an environment where people care about you.”

English teacher Valerie Wright said witnessing the students in action every day makes her proud to be at St. Mark’s. She saw them in action this week as a group traveled to Holy Angels School in Newark and to Sojourners Place, a Wilmington homeless shelter.

“I hope you, too, can name a reason that you’re proud to be at St. Mark’s,” Wright said.

St. Mary Magdalen School rallies for grad Worrilow as Super Bowl nears

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – More than 750 miles separate St. Mary Magdalen School and the Georgia Dome, the home of the Atlanta Falcons. That is approximately twice the distance from the school to Gillette Stadium, which the New England Patriots call home.

But this Sunday, when the teams meet in Houston in Super Bowl LI, the rooting interest at St. Mary Magdalen will be decidedly in the Falcons’ favor, thanks to the very personal connection the school has with one Atlanta player. Paul Worrilow, a Falcons linebacker, graduated from St. Mary Magdalen in 2004 and got his start playing football with the parish Catholic Youth Ministry program. Read more »
