Padua (2-1) at Saint Mark’s (3-1), 3:15 p.m. Two teams off to good starts meet, but both are looking to return to the win column. The Pandas have had just the weekend to mull over their loss to Archmere, but Saint Mark’s has been off a week since falling at Ursuline.

Wilmington Friends (4-0) at Saint Mark’s (4-0), 6 p.m. The volleyball gods just keep on giving this week. On Election Night, some will choose to watch the Quakers and Spartans.
