Staff reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Troy Reeder, a two-way starter for the Salesianum School football team, was named the recipient of the 2013 Michael DeLucia Sportsmanship Award, presented annually to a senior football player from a Delaware Catholic high school. The award, which has been given for 42 years, goes to a player “who has exemplified outstanding performance, attitude and character on and off the field.”

Reeder, a linebacker and running back, was recently named the defensive player of the year by the Delaware Interscholastic Football Coaches Association, and he was a first-team all-state selection on both defense and offense. He had 58 unassisted tackles and assisted on 28 others. He collected 3.5 quarterback sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered three fumbles. Read more »

It was the first soccer championship for the Irish, who finished the season 17-1-6. The game was a homecoming for O’Malley, who is from West Chester and had a large contingent of family and friends on hand to see Sunday’s win. At Salesianum, he was part of three state championship teams. Individually, O’Malley was a three-time first-team all-state player, two-time player of the year and a two-time national All-American.

For The Dialog

 

WILMINGTON – The Salesianum basketball team opened its season Saturday night ready to prove to the state that it has what it takes to compete for – and win – a state championship. The first opponent was defending state champion Howard, which brought its rebuilding project to a sold-out gym.

The Sals (1-0) were without 6-7 center Brian O’Neill, but it didn’t matter as they rolled to a 60-41 win. Junior guard Donte DiVincenzo, who is being recruited by several major Division I universities, led the way with 24 points. Read more »

Notable games: At St. Andrew’s, Dec. 12; at St. Mark’s, Dec. 19; vs. St. Elizabeth, Feb. 4; at Salesianum, Feb. 16.

Notable games: vs. A.I DuPont, Jan. 11; at Sanford, Jan. 21; at Salesianum, Jan. 24; vs. St. Elizabeth, Jan. 27

Top returning players: Sheldon Sorrell, Joe Schiavoni, Mike Piekarski

Notable games: vs. Concord, Dec. 13; vs. Salesianum, Jan. 10; vs. Archmere, Jan. 23; at Newark, Feb. 18

Last year: 2-17

Top returning players: Akhil Patel, Kubilay Tekmen

Notable games: at Archmere, Jan. 7
