WILMINGTON — Two Catholic high school graduates are among the 10 athletes, coaches and officials who will be inducted into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame at its 42nd banquet on May 16 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. Vince Filliben, who coached multiple sports at Archmere Academy for 31 years, and Kevin Mench, a graduate of St. Mark’s High School and former Major League Baseball slugger, join eight others going into the hall.

Filliben was a fixture at Archmere as a student and coach. He graduated in 1947, having been an outstanding athlete in football, basketball and baseball. Following his graduation, he starred at Drexel in basketball and baseball and played three seasons of minor-league baseball in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ system. Read more »

NEWARK – As the minutes dwindled down and the outcome of the girls’ state basketball championship game was no longer in doubt, they started to rise. One by one, Ursuline’s reserves tapped the scorer’s table and waited for a whistle, and their names would be added to the scoresheet signifying that, yes, they had appeared in the final.

Raiders coach John Noonan said it was very important for him to get as many girls into the game as he could, and this year that meant the entire roster. Last season, he said, he was unable to get one of his seniors into the lineup. She had been injured during the playoffs, but that should not have made a difference, he added. Read more »

NEWARK – During the final days of the regular season, Ursuline played Sanford, had a day off, then met Caravel the next day. That scenario will be replayed on Friday after the Raiders advanced to the state championship game following a convincing 48-16 win over Sanford on March 8 at the Bob Carpenter Center.

The top-seeded Raiders took a few minutes at the beginning of the game to get their motor running, but once they did, they just took over the contest. The fourth-seeded Warriors got to within 9-6 on a layup by Samantha Pollich with 1:28 left in the first quarter, but those were the last points they would score until 2:47 remained in the second.
