The first full week of high school winter sports is upon us, and the schedule-makers did not disappoint. On the girls’ side, the marquee matchup occurs Thursday at Conrad, where the Red Wolves will host St. Elizabeth. These teams have developed a nice rivalry over the past couple of seasons, and the Wolves Den promises to be rocking and full to capacity.

Padua (2-0) at Ursuline (0-0), 7:15 p.m. The Raiders open up their 2019-20 season at home against neighborhood rival Padua. The Pandas, ranked ninth by 302Sports.com, have managed two impressive wins to open the campaign, and to add one against Ursuline would be an early Christmas treat. Coach John Noonan will have perhaps his youngest roster at seventh-ranked Ursuline, while the Pandas are senior-heavy.

Delaware Military (2-0) at Saint Mark’s, 7:15 p.m. Two teams trying to bounce back meet for a prime-time matchup. The Seahawks won the Lady Rams Classic at Dickinson High School over the weekend, while Saint Mark’s has taken its first two by comfortable margins.
