Schweizer leads St. Mark’s with six as girls lacrosse defeats Caesar Rodney

By

DOVER – Kendra Schweizer scored six times, and Clare Estes had two goals and four assists as St. Mark’s girls lacrosse team kept rolling with an 18-1 victory over Caesar Rodney on April 14 at Scott D. Miller Stadium at Wesley College. The teams met as part of the annual Dave Reynolds Lacrosse Festival, and the Spartans sure were feeling festive as this one progressed.

Riders keeper Jasmin Hall was on point, stopping three Spartans shots right off the bat, and that kept CR in the contest for the first part of the opening half. St. Mark’s – ranked second in the state by 302Sports.com – owned the time of possession, and that eventually paid dividends. On the first free-position opportunity of the afternoon, Meg Noonan opted to turn away from the net instead of shoot, and she dished to Schweizer. The senior danced around two defenders and beat Hall high from point-blank range three minutes into the contest. Read more »

MILLTOWN – Within the span of a minute, St. Mark’s had seen its 37-36 lead over Caesar Rodney turn into a 42-37 deficit with less than two minutes left in regulation. But that Spartans clawed back to take a three-point lead, shook off the disappointment of seeing the Riders tie it, and reached down for a 57-55 overtime victory in nonconference boys basketball on Jan. 31. The Spartans ended CR’s seven-game winning streak.

Chris Ludman gave the Spartans that 37-36 lead with a 12-foot jumper from the key. The Riders’ Kairi Buie followed with an old-fashioned three-point play, and when St. Mark’s committed a turnover on its next possession, coach Nick Sanna kicked his water bottle in frustration. The bottle noisily bounced off a chair and rolled on to the court, and Sanna was assessed a technical foul. Caesar Rodneymade those two free throws and then another on the ensuing possession, giving the Riders the five-point spread. Read more »

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 »

HOCKESSIN – In a showdown April 5 between the top two Division I girls soccer teams in Delaware, No. 1 showed there is still a gap between them and everybody else.
