BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Salesianum brought its veteran volleyball team to Brandywine on March 23, to meet the host Bulldogs, whose program is in its first season. The Sals shook off a tough challenge from the newcomers in the first set and won going away in three sets. It was the Sals’s 18th consecutive win over the past two seasons.

Salesianum (1-0) entered this season with a 60-6-1 record over the past three years, including a 17-0 record and the New Castle County championship last season, when they dropped just two sets. But that didn’t seem to matter in the early going to Brandywine, who defeated Mount Pleasant on the road earlier in the week in the team’s inaugural match. Read more »

Dialog reporter

 

NEWARK — One Catholic school defended its crown, while another regained the top spot after a year away at the 2017 DIAA state swimming and diving championships on Feb. 25 at the Rawstrom Natatorium at the University of Delaware.

It was a repeat performance for Ursuline, which won back-to-back titles for the first time since 1986 and ’87. The Raiders received two wins from senior Marie Dickson, who captured both the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard backstroke. She was also a member of the 400-yard freestyle relay quartet that closed the event with a win. Dickson swam the opening leg and was followed by Abigail Poole, Allison Thomas and Heidi Dickson.

For The Dialog

 

The girls’ and boys’ basketball state tournaments start this week, and a bunch of Catholic schools are among the 24 in each vying for the top prize.

 

GIRLS

First Round

Tuesday, all games at 7 p.m.

(23) Friends (12-8) at (10) Archmere (14-6). The Auks open with a home game against an experienced Quakers team. The Quakers start three seniors and two juniors and are a balanced team. Junior Natalie DePaulo leads the team in scoring and will be the focus of the Auks’ defense. The Auks have a mixture of youth and experience; freshman Madison Stewart has improved and is one of the scoring leaders on this team.

Unknown(19) St Thomas More (13-7) at (14) Sussex Central (14-6). The Ravens have a tough road test as they travel to Sussex Central in a first-round matchup. The Ravens are a young team that played all season without the injured Sarah Pool. Aniah Patterson is a dangerous player that could score from anywhere. St. Thomas More beat Sussex Central at home on Jan. 19, 51-40. Patterson led the Ravens with 13 points.

Second Round

Thursday, all games at 7 p.m.

Friends-Archmere winner at (7) St. Elizabeth (13-7). The Vikings earned a first-round bye thanks to a strong finish and a quality schedule. They won 11 of their last 13 games. The Vikings beat Archmere, 45-41, on Feb. 4 as senior Lexi Bromwell scored 10 fourth-quarter basketballpoints. The experienced Vikings also feature seniors Sarah Metz and Alanna Speaks, along with junior Alexis Lee. The Vikings and Quakers did not meet during the regular season.

St. Thomas More-Sussex Central winner at (3) Caravel.

Lake Forest-Milford winner at (1) Ursuline (19-1). The Raiders are the top seed and went unbeaten in the state. They have the best backcourt in the state in Alisha Lewis, Maggie Connolly and Yanni Hendley, and their defense is air-tight. Ursuline didn’t play either Lake Forest or Milford this year, but their challenging schedule should have them ready to advance to the Bob Carpenter Center for the quarterfinal round.

Quarterfinals:

Saturday, times to be determined, Bob Carpenter Center

Delaware Military Academy-Laurel-Sussex Tech winner vs. Lake Forest-Milford-Ursuline winner

Friends-Archmere-St. Elizabeth winner vs. Dover-Howard-Caesar Rodney winner

St. Thomas More-Sussex Central-Caravel winner vs. Delcastle-A.I. DuPont-Concord winner

Delmarva Christian-Hodgson-Conrad winner vs. Mount Pleasant-Cape Henlopen-Sanford winner

 

BOYS

First Round 

Wednesday

(18) Indian River (12-8) at (15) St. Mark’s (15-5), 7 p.m. The Spartans earned a home first-round playoff game with a solid finish to the season. They only lost once at home. The Indians should be prepared to face a solid Spartans defense, and on offense, senior senior Chris Ludman leads the way. If the Spartans are making their three-point shots, they are tough to beat. It will be a contrast of styles, as the Indians like to push the tempo, while the Spartans are the epitome of patience.

Second Round 

Friday, all games at 7 p.m.

Indian River-St Mark’s winner vs. (2) St. Thomas More (17-3), site to be announced. The Ravens had an excellent season against a very tough out-of-state schedule. They will push the ball and look to score early and often. St. Thomas More has multiple weapons, including Greg Bloodsworth and Eric Montanez, who can take over a game. A game against a St Mark’s team that likes to slow things down could be interesting.

(19) Caravel (14-6)-(14) Hodgson (15-5) winner at (3) Salesianum (15-5). The Sals are one of the hottest teams coming into the tournament, winners of eight straight and 10 of 11. They were undefeated at home and will play stingy defense. On offense they can shoot the deep ball well and can also go inside to junior Paul Brown. Hodgson had a strong season; the Silver Eagles and the Sals both have wins over top-seeded Mount Pleasant. Caravel features high-scoring O’Koye Parker.

(22) Laurel (12-8)-(11) Sanford (12-8) winner at (6) St. Elizabeth (13-7). The Vikings are a deep team that finished the regular season with four straight wins. Senior Jordan Money can score from anywhere on the court and can take over any game. He’s got a nice supporting cast that includes Elijah Dockery and Nate Thomas. The Vikings are a good foul shooting team which helps them in close games. St. Elizabeth defeated Sanford, 57-56, on Jan. 12 thanks to a late bucket from Money.

Quarterfinals

Sunday, times to be determined, Bob Carpenter Center

Howard-Appoquinimink-Newark winner vs. Indian River-St Marks-St Thomas Moore winner.

Laurel-Sanford-St Elizabeth winner vs. Caravel-Hodgson-Sallies winner.

Red Lion-Milford- Smyrna winner vs. Lake Forest-William Penn-Woodbridge winner.

Friends-St. Georges Tech-Glasgow winner vs. Cape Henlopen-Caesar Rodney-Mount Pleasant.

Tickets to first- and second-round games will be sold at the individual schools and at the door if any remain. Tickets to the quarterfinals, semifinals and final are available at statechamps.com/clients/diaa. The quarterfinal rounds will be spit into two sessions requiring two tickets.
