All Saints wins first CYM sports championship

By

The girls cross country team at All Saints Catholic School won the 2011 Catholic Youth Ministry championship, which was held Oct. 30 on a 2.25-mile course at Bellevue State Park in north Wilmington. It was the first title for the new regional school, which opened this year from the merged Corpus Christi, St. Catherine of Siena and St. Matthew’s schools.

The Crusaders finished with 28 points, followed by St. Mary Magdalen with 45. The other teams, in order of finish, were St. Elizabeth, St. John the Beloved, Ursuline, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Immaculate Conception and St. Anthony of Padua.

St. Edmond’s Academy was the boys’ winner, defeating All Saints on a tiebreaker. Both teams finished with 36 points, so the winner was determined by the placement of each squad’s sixth finisher. St. Edmond’s sixth runner placed 16th, while All Saints’ came across in 18th. The other teams, in order of finish, were IHM, St. Mary Magdalen, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Elizabeth, Christ the Teacher, Immaculate Conception and St. John the Beloved.

All Saints produced both individual champions. Caroline Foley topped the girls with 13:06.36, while Michael Flanagan crossed the line in 12:05.34.

Complete results are available at the CYM website.

ELKTON, Md. — The summer checklist for some high school students might look something like this: roll out of bed around 11, check Facebook, go to work, hit the pool, catch a movie.

For most, it does not include raising money for backpacks and school supplies for more than 500 children, unless you are part of the Kemp family of Immaculate Conception Parish in Elkton, Md. Beginning with Erica 10 years ago, then Laura Jeanne, Caroline and now Bryson, the drive now provides new school supplies to more than 500 children each year.

“We consider this serving the Lord,” said their mother, Mary.

Knowledge now falling into the laptops of Archmere students

By

Staff reporter

CLAYMONT — When Archmere Academy administrators informed students last year that each of them would be receiving a laptop from the school beginning this year, Kelsey Kushner was not impressed.

“I thought it was the worst idea ever,” the senior said last week. “I was so used to taking notes, that was the way I studied, and I didn’t want to change anything, especially not for senior year.”

Kushner said she had found the requirement to have a laptop a distraction at her previous school, but her outlook is changing as the program evolves at Archmere. “It’s just easier to have everything in one spot.”

GLASGOW — Maria Cahill makes her faith known in her sometimes tongue-in-cheek blog as Miss Delaware 2011. Each day’s postings end with a Bible quote.

Taylor Strauss lived in Brooklyn, N.Y., at the time of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and she remembers that day because her mother picked her up early from preschool and took her to Toys R Us to get a new Barbie.

“I just basically remember her getting a call from my dad saying, ‘Have you seen the news, have you heard?’ just kind of frantic and in a panic,” the Ursuline Academy freshman recalled last week.

Staff reporter

MAGNOLIA — Ten years after graduating from the diocese’s newest high school, St. Thomas More Prep, Sara Spencer Passon is back, this time as a social studies teacher. She is the first graduate to teach at her alma mater, and she believes this is where she is supposed to be.

“I like the small atmosphere,” she said last week between classes. “It just feels like there’s a closeness. Everybody genuinely seems to care about everybody else’s well-being, which is something I don’t think you always see in a lot of larger schools.”
