WILMINGTON – When it comes to senior citizens and students interacting, it’s usually the older people sharing their expertise with the youngsters. But in Emma Field’s case, the roles are reversed.

The Ursuline Academy senior is the one leading her elders, —residents at Kentmere Nursing Care Center — where Field is the volunteer director of the handbell choir.

When she started, she was not familiar with the bells, but she could read music, which was good enough. Read more »

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.

Top returning players: Matthew Williams, Nick Pappas

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

St. Thomas More Academy

Last year: 2-17

Top returning players: Akhil Patel, Kubilay Tekmen

Notable games: at Archmere, Jan. 7

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.
