WILMINGTON — Brian O’Neill of Salesianum School and Adrianna Hahn of Ursuline Academy were named the boys’ and girls’ basketball players of the year Wednesday afternoon by the Delaware Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association.

For the girls, a pair of St. Elizabeth Vikings — Macy Robinson and Sabrina Hackendorn — are first-teamers. Emma Matthews of Padua was named to the third team.

St. Mark’s group helps at Thanksgiving

WILMINGTON – The Z-Club at St. Mark’s High School spent November trying to make sure others had a happy holiday season. Throughout the month, students collected nearly 450 jars of peanut butter and cans of yams for the Basket Brigade of Delaware, a volunteer organization that delivers food at Thanksgiving to needy families. This year, the Basket Brigade hopes to help more than 2,000 families.

In addition, on Nov. 13, members of the Z-Club packed dozens of shoeboxes to support Operation Christmas Guild, a project of Samaritan’s Purse that provides boxes of presents to children in developing countries. The club included a group picture and personal notes to each child.

In the two years the Z-Club has helped with this effort, it has contributed more than 150 shoeboxes to children ages 2-14.

The Z-Club is sponsored by the Philadelphia chapter of Zonta International, which helps develop leadership skills in and community-service activities for sophomore, junior and senior girls.
