ELSMERE — It might be happening on the other side of the globe, but students at All Saints Catholic School have taken a special interest in the deforestation of an Indonesian island and its effect on an endangered species.

The school is participating in the UNLESS Project, sponsored by the Philadelphia Zoo. This year, the zoo is focusing on the devastating effects of deforestation on the Sumatran tiger. The tiger and other species are losing their habitat on the island of Sumatra because forests are being cleared to make room for oil palm tree plantations. Read more »

Payne steps down as Padua AD, volleyball coach

April 30th, 2012 Posted in Our Diocese, Youth Tags: , , ,

By

WILMINGTON — Angel Payne, who has been the athletic director and varsity volleyball coach at Padua Academy in Wilmington for the past 11 years, has resigned from those posts, head of school Cindy Mann announced Monday morning.

According to Mann, Payne stepped down to pursue “new possibilities of service.”

Payne has not been at the all-girls school for approximately two months, and school officials would not disclose the reason for her absence.

During her tenure as volleyball coach, the Pandas were a perennial top-five program in Delaware, reaching the state finals four times (2003-05, 2009), falling each time to rival Ursuline Academy. Under her guidance, the school established golf and tennis as varsity sports and crew as a club sport.

Mann said over the next several weeks a search committee will be formed to find the next athletic director and volleyball coach. Until then, Joe Brown, the soccer coach and associate athletic director, and Lauren DiSabatino, junior varsity volleyball coach and assistant athletic director, will be the interim athletic administrative team.

Staff reporter

WILMINGTON — Crew, although not well-known on the Delaware high school scene, is gaining in popularity nationwide and might be the fastest-growing athletic college scholarship opportunity for girls. Students from at least three Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Wilmington spend their afternoons rowing in Wilmington.

Padua Academy has a group of girls who row with the Newport Rowing Club with students from other schools. Two girls are with the NRC varsity squad and eight are novices. Some 15 students from St. Mark’s High School compete out of the Wilmington Youth Rowing Association, as does a group from Archmere Academy.

Staff reporter

WILMINGTON – The traditional spring sports offerings for high school girls include softball, track and field, soccer, lacrosse and tennis. At Padua Academy, the available options have gone beyond the ordinary, and the Wilmington school has added a few sports not common in a high school setting. One of those is golf, which is in its second year as a varsity sport. (The school also added tennis this year.)

The golf team was a club for two years before becoming a varsity sport last season, senior Taylor Ohlinger said. The Pandas went 3-3-1 in their inaugural year and started the 2012 season with a 3-2 win over Cumberland Regional High School of New Jersey.
