Optimism on Cedar Street as Vikings volleyball ushers in new era

It’s a new day at St. Elizabeth, with a new coach and new optimism surrounding the volleyball program. The Vikings won just one match in 2016, but it was only two seasons ago that they lost a five-setter in the first round of the state tournament. New coach Jerry McCarthy, who spent eight years as an assistant at Wilmington Friends, is bringing a fresh approach to Cedar Street.

“We’re just trying to instill a good mindset,” he said. “The girls have worked extremely hard embracing a new system. And the new system is simple stuff. All we’re going to do is play basic volleyball. The girls have embraced it, they’ve worked hard. They’ve learned that if they fail at that one point, it’s OK. It’s what they choose to do afterward.” Read more »

WILMINGTON – The seventh-seeded St. Elizabeth’s Vikings learned from last year’s second-round loss and survived a tough battle with 10th-seeded Archmere, 49-42, on March 2 at the St. E Center. The Vikings, who beat Archmere, 45-41, on Feb. 5 by scoring the last 11 points, did the same thing Thursday, scoring the final 11 points.

“It was a carbon copy,” St. Elizabeth coach Dan Cooney said. “It’s been like that the last couple of years. I’ve got so much respect for Danny (Pisani, Archmere’s coach) and what he does at Archmere with those kids. That is a good group, and it’s a group that always battles us.” Read more »

WILMINGTON – After St. Elizabeth had fought back from a seven-point halftime deficit to tie Ursuline in the teams’ highly entertaining Catholic Conference girls basketball showdown on Feb. 8, the top-ranked Raiders could have gone two ways. They could have folded the tent and watched the Vikings complete their comeback, or they could respond in front of a loud, sold-out gymnasium and show why they are the team to beat in Delaware.

Over a stretch of seven and a half minutes spanning the third and fourth quarters, Ursuline answered the third-ranked Vikings with a 17-2 run, building a big lead and going on to a 58-43 victory. The Raiders swept the season series with St. Elizabeth and improved to 15-1 on the season. Read more »

Strong second half carries Riders girls past St. Elizabeth

CAMDEN – Neither St. Elizabeth nor Caesar Rodney put on a clinic on the basketball court when they met Dec. 12 at CR, but the teams sure delivered an entertaining show. Alexis Reid’s two free throws with 6.1 seconds remaining in overtime proved to be the difference in the Riders’ 50-48 nonconference girls win.

Reid’s shots capped a Caesar Rodney comeback, as the Riders trailed, 24-14, at the half and were down as many as 12 at 30-18 early in the third quarter. After a first half marked by a shoot-early and shoot-often approach, the Riders came out with more patience after intermission. It paid dividends, as the home team scored 12 straight to forge a tie. Senior Alissa Haith gave the Riders their first lead of the night at 34-33, stealing a pass and driving the other way for a layup. That was the score heading into the fourth quarter. Read more »
