By

Dialog reporter

NEWARK – Ursuline displayed an efficient offense and its usual smothering defense and was never threatened in capturing the school’s 17th state girls basketball championship on March 10 at the Bob Carpenter Center. A 15-0 run spanning nearly five minutes in the first quarter gave the Raiders the cushion they needed on the way to a 54-32 win in front of 1,454 fans, many of them wearing red and black.

It was the Raiders’ third-straight championship. They also defeated Caravel for the 2015 title. Read more »

Big second-half run lifts Ursuline past St. Elizabeth

WILMINGTON – After St. Elizabeth had fought back from a seven-point halftime deficit to tie Ursuline in the teams’ highly entertaining Catholic Conference girls basketball showdown on Feb. 8, the top-ranked Raiders could have gone two ways. They could have folded the tent and watched the Vikings complete their comeback, or they could respond in front of a loud, sold-out gymnasium and show why they are the team to beat in Delaware.

Over a stretch of seven and a half minutes spanning the third and fourth quarters, Ursuline answered the third-ranked Vikings with a 17-2 run, building a big lead and going on to a 58-43 victory. The Raiders swept the season series with St. Elizabeth and improved to 15-1 on the season. Read more »

NEWARK – When Concord traveled to Ursuline for the final game of the regular season, Ursuline ran out to a 21-5 lead, but Concord played evenly the rest of the way in a 50-41 Ursuline win. The teams met again Thursday night in the second semifinal of the girls’ state basketball tournament, and this time the Concord Raiders stayed close the entire night. It wasn’t enough, however, as No. 1 Ursuline took a 40-35 decision to advance to the state championship game for the second consecutive season.

Ursuline will meet No. 2 Sanford for the title Friday night at 7 p.m. Sanford got there following a 65-37 win over No. 18 Conrad.

Concord’s quick defenders forced Ursuline into an uncharacteristic 11 first-half turnovers, and the UA Raiders led by just a single point at halftime. They tightened up their ballhandling after intermission, finally built a two-possession lead, and held on as Concord fought its way back. Read more »

Future looks bright for Ursuline basketball

NEWARK — As the final minute approached in Ursuline’s 53-41 basketball state championship win over Caravel Academy on March 13, coach John Noonan began emptying his bench, allowing his starters to exit the court to loud ovations from their fellow students and the large contingent of Raiders fans. Kailyn Kampert left the court with Alisha Lewis, Maggie Connolly and Kryshell Gordy, with smiles and high fives all around.

At the next stoppage of play, it was Adrianna Hahn’s turn. Noonan greeted his five-year starter with a hug, one of many she would receive as the seconds ticked off the clock. The Raiders supporters rose to their feet. Later, as Queen’s “We Are the Champions” filled the Carpenter Center, Hahn assessed the present, while a few of the returning Raiders looked toward the future. Read more »

By

Dialog reporter

WILMINGTON – Adrianna Hahn’s afternoon did not get off to the best start on Tuesday, but all ended well for the Ursuline senior. Hahn converted two free throws with 5.4 seconds remaining to boost the Raiders to a 50-48 win over Lawrence County (Tenn.) in the St. Francis Healthcare Cup third-place game at the Diamond State Classic.

The two-time state player of the year missed several shots in the first half as Ursuline spotted the Wildcats a 10-point halftime lead, which had shrunk to eight at the start of the fourth quarter. But Hahn kept shooting and leading her teammates as they fought back. She scored 12 of her game-high 27 points in the final stanza, including hitting both ends of the one-and-one at the end.

BEAR – Caravel Academy controlled the opening tip Thursday night against Ursuline, and the Buccaneers took an early 2-0 lead on a Micah Morgan basket. A close-to-capacity crowd, including a sizable contingent of Caravel students, roared its approval. But the top-ranked Raiders had other plans, scoring the next 10 points en route to a 67-45 win.

The winter storm cost Ursuline two days of practice, and senior guard Laura Hurff and sophomore forward Kailyn Kampert both said they could feel the effects of not being on the court this week. It was difficult to see that as the Raiders stormed up and down the court Thursday night. Read more »

Hahn’s 29, Raiders defense lead No. 2 Ursuline over top-ranked St. Elizabeth

By

Staff reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Adrianna Hahn was, as usual, the unquestioned leader on offense for Ursuline Academy on Monday night, but it was the Raiders’ rebounding and defense, and some long-distance help from Alyssa Irons, that helped make the difference in their 55-50 win over St. Elizabeth High School. Fans braved frigid cold to pack the Ursuline gymnasium for the latest chapter in the girls’ basketball rivalry, as the Raiders came in ranked second in the state, while St. Elizabeth was the only team above them.

Hahn had 29 points, but a rebound and putback of a missed free throw by Kailyn Kampert late in the fourth quarter caught the eye of her coach, John Noonan. The coach said Hahn is much more than just a scoring machine. Read more »
