Dialog reporter

 

MILLTOWN – Within the span of a minute, St. Mark’s had seen its 37-36 lead over Caesar Rodney turn into a 42-37 deficit with less than two minutes left in regulation. But that Spartans clawed back to take a three-point lead, shook off the disappointment of seeing the Riders tie it, and reached down for a 57-55 overtime victory in nonconference boys basketball on Jan. 31. The Spartans ended CR’s seven-game winning streak.

Chris Ludman gave the Spartans that 37-36 lead with a 12-foot jumper from the key. The Riders’ Kairi Buie followed with an old-fashioned three-point play, and when St. Mark’s committed a turnover on its next possession, coach Nick Sanna kicked his water bottle in frustration. The bottle noisily bounced off a chair and rolled on to the court, and Sanna was assessed a technical foul. Caesar Rodneymade those two free throws and then another on the ensuing possession, giving the Riders the five-point spread. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – As the girls from Archmere and St. Mark’s lined up for the 200-yard freestyle relay, the final event of their dual swimming meet on Jan. 24, the results of the meet hung in the balance. If Archmere could take first and second, the Auks would win the meet. If not, the Spartans would go home victorious.

Well, Archmere’s quartet of Lillian Quinn, Emily Lugg, Sarah Mousley and Chelsey Liu did what they had to do, winning the event. But St. Mark’s finished comfortably in second place, and a third-place showing by Archmere was not enough.
