CLAYMONT – A near-sellout crowd turned out at Moglia Fieldhouse on Oct. 20 to see top-ranked Padua take on No. 6 Archmere, and the visiting Pandas silenced the Auks’ faithful with a 3-0 sweep. Set scores were 25-14, 25-18, 25-18.

Archmere came out hot early, taking a 5-2 lead in the first. But the Pandas used contributions from their deep roster to take control. Jess Molen was scoring with regularity on kills, and she added a few aces, and Michelle Kozicki came on to pick up points on a kill and a pair of blocks. Emily Jarome then warmed up, and the defending state player of the year made her presence known over and over and over again as setter Emma Lucey went her way all night. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Archmere, playing its first match since losing a five-set marathon at Wilmington Friends on Tuesday night, came out with a purpose on Oct. 21, sweeping host Padua in convincing fashion. Set scores were 25-21, 25-22 and 25-17 in front of a rocking sellout crowd that turned out to watch the two two teams in Delaware battle just a week before the end of the regular season.

The top-ranked Auks used a balanced attack and perhaps their finest defensive effort of the season to take down the No. 2 Pandas. Lexi Kelly led the way with nine kills, while Julia Kochie and Faith Merritt added seven apiece. Kochie also played stellar defense, collecting 13 digs. Archmere used superb positioning all night to counter the effectiveness of Padua’s all-state hitter, Emily Jarome, which also led to a number of uncharacteristic errors on the Pandas. Read more »
