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.

Conrad, the No. 2 team, opened with a win at the 76ers Fieldhouse over the weekend. Both teams feature Division I college talent and are no strangers to each other.

Delaware Military (2-0) at Saint Mark’s, 7:15 p.m. Two teams trying to bounce back meet for a prime-time matchup.
