MILLTOWN – No. 6 Ursuline avenged two earlier losses and swept the third-seeded Padua Pandas in the state volleyball tournament quarterfinals on Nov. 8 at St. Mark’s High School. Junior Taylor Wright led the way for the Raiders – who have just two seniors – with 11 kills and 20 digs. The set scores were 25-23, 25-20 and 25-21.

The magnitude of the match got to both teams early, as they committed several errors, but by mid-set they were playing outstanding volleyball. Padua senior Taylor Valletti had a kill and an ace to stake the Pandas to an 8-3 lead, but Wright and freshman Corinne Furey started finding holes in the Padua defense and cut the lead to 16-14.

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Delmar’s volleyball team and its energetic supporters traveled more than 100 miles on Nov. 5 to meet Ursuline in the second round at Brandywine High School, but, unfortuately for the Wildcats, the stay in northern New Castle County was short-lived. Ursuline, the No. 6 seed in the state tournament, was all business in dispatching No. 22 Delmar in a sweep. The set scores were 25-12, 25-17 and 25-11.

The Raiders came out swinging, getting a trio of kills from freshman Corinne Furey on their way to a 9-3 advantage. Delmar earned a temporary reprieve on an unforced error, but Ursuline followed with five straight. The first and last of those points came on kills courtesy of Kylie Nocket, one a tip, the other an unplayable smash. Read more »
