GREENVILLE – St. Thomas More’s volleyball team had lost its first two matches of the 2017 season, and, for a bit on Sept. 14, the Ravens weren’t sure they were going to have a chance to play their third. Bus troubles delayed the team’s trip to New Castle County, and a 5:30 p.m. scheduled start moved closer to 7 p.m.

The wait was worth it, however, as the Ravens knocked off host AI. DuPont in five tough sets in the consolation round of the inaugural Tiger Classic. It was the first win for new coach Cheyenne Sanchez, and afterward, she and her lone senior, Haley Davidson, clutched the third-place trophy tight, posing for photographs with teammates and eagerly anticipating a few slices of pizza before boarding their bus back to Magnolia.

MILLTOWN – St. Mark’s hosted A.I. DuPont Jan. 9 in a double-overtime thriller that ultimately was decided at the free throw line.

GREENVILLE – For three quarters Saturday night, the St. Elizabeth boys’ basketball team had things pretty much their way against the homestanding A.I. DuPont Tigers.

GREENVILLE – St. Mark’s girls basketball season came to an oh-so-close end Wednesday afternoon when the Spartans fell, 33-32, at A.I duPont in the first round of the state playoffs. The Spartans, however, gave the Tigers perhaps more than anyone expected and had a chance to pull out a last-second upset.
As it turned out, sophomore Lauryn Griffin’s running 12-foot floater with 13 seconds to go was the difference, as the No. 13 Tigers advanced to play at No. 4 St. Elizabeth in the second round. That game will be played at the St. E Center, although it will not be tonight as scheduled. The date and time will be announced later. Vikings coach Dan Cooney and several of his players attended the game. Read more »
