Lottery tickets. The racetrack. The casino. Friendly bets. Name anything that necessitates a whole lot of luck and rest assured that Tommy Zabielski won’t be interested. If the Salesianum School senior had any luck at all, it would arguably be a first.

“I guess I have had some tough breaks,” said Zabielski, “but I don’t really think about that or dwell on it. I just try to keep moving on.”

It was a fun and faith-filled way for the Catholic youths and young adults to honor God and conclude the 31st biennial national conference, held Nov. 17-19 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Staff reporter

BEAR – St. Mark’s had controlled the pace of play throughout much of Saturday’s state championship soccer game against Salesianum, and the Spartans appeared headed to their first title since 2001. The clock was stopped, as the referee was keeping track of extra time on the field at Caravel Academy. With a 2-1 lead, the Spartans remained aggressive, and their fans prepared to celebrate.

“Come on, blow the whistle,” St. Mark’s coach Dan Swasey said to himself on the sideline.

NEWARK — The record will show that St. Mark’s swept Archmere, 3-0, in the state volleyball championship Nov. 13, but the final score does not tell the real story. Each of the three sets was decided by the minimum two points — 26-24, 25-23 and 25-23.

The third-seeded Spartans came from behind in all three sets, including scoring the final seven points in the first, to claim their second consecutive title at the Bob Carpenter Center on the campus of the University of Delaware.

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.

St. Mark’s stuns Salesianum

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.
