The sports schedule is a bit light this week, with several teams taking a break for mid-terms, but there is some compelling action this week. That includes a battle of unbeatens in girls basketball and two premier scholastic wrestling events.

Girls

Basketball

St. Elizabeth (1-1) at Westtown (Pa.), 4 p.m.

Wilmington Charter (3-0) at Saint Mark’s (4-0), 7:15 p.m. Two of the early surprises in girls basketball meet in prime time. The leading scorers for the respective teams are Emma Brown for the Force and Serena Pluta for the Spartans. The boys’ teams from these schools may be on hand after playing each other at Charter earlier in the afternoon.
