Like any athlete, his first thought was getting back on to the field for his Catholic Youth Ministry team, St. Mary of the Assumption.

But Reid knew something was wrong.

“I kind of felt dizzy. I wanted to play, but I didn’t really feel that good,” he recalled recently at All Saints Catholic School, where he is an eighth-grader. “They made me go through the protocol.” Read more »

Padua senior named a top 10 volunteer

Pearce Quesenberry, a senior at Padua Academy, has been named one of America’s top 10 youth volunteers of 2015 by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. This follows her selection as one of Delaware’s top two youth volunteers a few months ago by the same organization.

Quesenberry was honored May 4 at a ceremony at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. She and the other students were selected based on initiative, effort, impact and the personal growth demonstrated in the course of their volunteer service. Each received a $5,000 award, engraved gold medallions, crystal trophies for their schools and a $5,000 grant from the Prudential Foundation for the charity of their choice.

Quesenberry, 17, is a brain cancer survivor who is the key figure in the Pearce Q Foundation, a nonprofit that has raised more than $100,000 over the past six years to increase awareness of childhood cancer, help fund the search for a cure, and ease the financial pressure on families of young cancer patients.

Catholic Youth Ministry athletes follow DIAA return-to-play protocol

By

Dialog reporter

 

Catholic Youth Ministry, which administers athletics for students in grades three through 12, and the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) use similar protocols when it comes to handling concussions. Any player suspected of suffering a head injury must be removed from play immediately, and his or her return is subject to clearance by a doctor or other qualified health care professional.

DIAA follows a six-stage “return-to-play” plan, with advancement from one stage to another subject to clearance by a doctor, athletic trainer or other qualified professional. Before returning to full contact in practice, an athlete must be cleared by a physician. The plan is adapted from the acute concussion evaluation care plan developed by the Centers for Disease Control, which adapted the work of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Read more »
