SMYRNA – It was a tale of two halves in the state Division I soccer championship match Nov. 19 at Smyrna High School, and the Salesianum side wrote both stories. On a cold, windy and rainy night in central Delaware, the top-ranked Sals scored a goal with the rain and wind at their backs, then played even better with the elements in their faces on the way to a 2-0 win over Appoquinimink.

The win gave Salesianum its seventh straight state championship, 13th in the past 15 years, and 16th overall. The Sals finished the season with a record of 16-1-1. The only loss came to Boulder (Colo.) in the second game of a two-day trip to Colorado, and the tie was against St. Benedict’s Prep (N.J.), one of the best teams in the country. Read more »

MAGNOLIA – St. Thomas More was coming off its best-ever volleyball regular season, having won 12 of its 13 contests and earning an 11th seed and a first-round home match on Nov. 3 at Bishop Saltarelli Gymnasium. But No. 22 Delmar was not impressed, going home with a 3-0 sweep over the Ravens. The set scores were 25-18, 25-21 and 26-24.

Delmar, which earned its tournament berth as champions of the Henlopen South conference, was ready to go from the jump, taking a 9-1 first-set lead after three straight aces by Carly Covington. St. Thomas More responded, closing to within two on two occasions, both on aces. The first, to make the score 16-14 Delmar, came from Sarah Reeves, and the second was served up by Logan Hughes that made it 19-17. Read more »

BEAR – Garrett Cannon’s football career at Salesianum’s quarterback ended in November with him lying on the grass at Baynard Stadium with a broken leg, a dislocated ankle and tendon damage. He had to watch his teammates play the state championship game from a wheelchair on the sidelines at Delaware Stadium.

He worked his way back to be ready to go for the lacrosse season, and on Saturday night, he scored three times – including No. 1 Salesianum’s opening and closing goals of the contest – to help lead the Sals to a 16-7 win over sixth-seeded Appoquinimink for the state title at Bob Peoples Stadium at Caravel Academy. It was the school’s eighth championship. Read more »

CLAYMONT – No. 12 Archmere, playing as the visiting team on its home field, knocked defending state baseball champion Appoquinimink out of the playoffs with a 7-1 win on May 23.

The game had been scheduled to be played at Hodgson, but it was moved because of weather. The visiting Auks got a run in the first against Jags starter Ryan Steckline. Andrew Orzel worked a walk, and Joe Singley also walked with two outs. Dan Matranga hit a single to score Orzel. Appo, the fifth seed, tied the game in the bottom of the inning as Steckline doubled in Javon Fields. Read more »

CLAYMONT – Archmere hosted Appoquinimink on April 30, and the Auks fell just short of upsetting the state’s fourth-ranked softball team. The Jaguars escaped with a 3-2 win.

The Auks had lost three in a row coming into the game, and Caravel had defeated top-ranked Caravel earlier in the week. Appo struck first as Rachel Durham reached on an error and scored on a two-out hit by Haley Jones in the top of the second. Brooke Miller added a solo home run with two outs in the third to double the lead. Read more »

Appoquinimink remains unbeaten after lacrosse upset at Archmere

CLAYMONT – Appoquinimink’s boys lacrosse team built an early lead, watched as it turned into a deficit late in the third quarter, then rallied in the fourth to pull a 13-12 upset over third-ranked Archmere on Wednesday afternoon. The surprising Jaguars remained undefeated with the win, improving to 6-0 and snapping a four-game Auks win streak.

The teams were tied at 10 heading into the fourth quarter, but it didn’t take long for Appo to regain the lead. A minute into the quarter, Zach Bowen beat Archmere goalie Jake Mottola high from the right side. Appoquinimink went into a stall offense after that, methodically running time off the clock.

NEW CASTLE – Salesianum faced defending champion Appoquinimink on March 31 in search of a big win, and thanks to senior Daniel Mersman, they got it. The Sals defeated the Jaguars, 5-4, in nine innings at Wilson Field on March 31.

Mersman’s RBI single in the ninth was his third hit of the afternoon. Andrew Sullivan closed the door in the ninth, picking up the win in relief.

A pair of lefthanders, Ryan Steckline of Appo and Ryan Campbell of the Sals, started the game and gave up little early. Steckline, in fact, had the first hit of the game, a home run over the right field fence in the second to give the Jaguars a 1-0 lead.

Beck Milton tripled for Salesianum in the third and scored on a base hit by Donte Cautillo, but Appo got that run back in the bottom of the third with a second home run, another blast over the right field wall off the bat of Brett Willet.

Salesianum tied the contest again in the fourth. Singles by Mersman and Zack Miller were followed by a walk. Christopher Hammond brought Mersman home with a sacrifice fly, but Steckline worked out of the jam without any more damage, and his afternoon on the mound was done.

Appo took the lead for the third time in the fifth on a sacrifice fly by Derek Esposito after a couple of bloop hits.

The Sals took their first lead in the sixth when Christopher Argo singled home two runs with two outs. Campbell then struck out the side in the sixth and went for the complete game win in the seventh, but Appo had other ideas.

Mikayla Hollaway hit a triple to deep center field and scored on a two-out triple by Javon Fields. Sullivan came in to get the last out to set up extra innings.

The Sals (2-0) travel to New York on Saturday to face Cardinal Spellman at 10 a.m. Appo (2-2) also plays again on Saturday as they host Cape Henlopen at noon in a rematch of last season’s state championship game.

WILMINGTON – Fifth-ranked Appoquinimink traveled north on Feb. 2 to meet No. 8 Salesianum, and the Jaguars scored a 50-46 overtime win in a defensive struggle that featured more turnovers than made field goals.

The Sals got off to a fast start behind five points from Kasai Guthrie, including an old-fashioned three-point play. The 7-2 lead quickly faded as the Jags’ Myles Cale took over with Salesianum big man Tariq Ingraham on the bench. Included among Cale’s points was a thunderous dunk that gave Appo an 8-7 lead after the first quarter. Read more »
