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.

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 »
