The great outdoors will be just that this week, with compelling matchups in all three sports. Traditional baseball powers go at it early, while indoors, undefeated volleyball teams from Salesianum and Indian River face off on Tuesday.

Baseball

Monday

Chapelgate Christian at Ss. Peter and Paul (4-2), 3:30 p.m. The Sabres kick off a busy week as they will play four times in five days, including games against nearby rivals North Caroline and Cambridge-South Dorchester.

Newark Charter (4-1) at Salesianum (4-0), 4 p.m. Two of the top teams in the state meet. The Patriots bring a potent offense to Wilmington and are coming off a loss to the new No. 1 team, Appoquinimink. Sallies has relied more on pitching, allowing just five runs in four games.

Tuesday

Conrad (2-3) at Archmere (3-3), 4 p.m.

St. Mark’s (5-1) at Caravel (3-1), 7 p.m. Two of Delaware’s prime-time programs battle under the lights in Bear. The Spartans got back into the win column over the weekend after suffering their first loss, and Caravel is the next test on a difficult schedule. The Bucs have rebounded from a season-opening loss to win their last three.

Wednesday

Ss. Peter and Paul at Concordia Prep, 4 p.m.

Thursday

North Caroline at Ss. Peter and Paul, 3:30 p.m.

Archmere at Newark (0-4), 3:45 p.m.

Appoquinimink (2-2) vs. Salesianum (2-2), 6:45 p.m. at Tower Hill. Don’t let the records fool you. These are two of the state’s best teams who venture outside Delaware to fill the schedule. In fact, this will be the Sals’ first game against a Delaware foe. The teams have not met since the 2016 state championship.

Thursday

Archmere (5-0) vs. Conrad (4-1), 3:45 p.m. at Dickinson. The Diamond State Athletic Conference is in the spotlight this afternoon.
