WILMINGTON – In the most anticipated game on the Delaware girls high school basketball schedule this regular season, Ursuline proved once again why it is deserving of the top spot in the rankings. The Raiders overcame a six-point deficit after one quarter with lethal long-distance shooting to defeat No. 2 Sanford, 50-40, on Feb. 16.

The Raiders (17-1) drilled nine three-point shots against the Warriors, five by junior guard Maggie Connolly. Four of Ursuline’s distance shots came during a second quarter in which Ursuline outscored Sanford, 21-9, to take a 35-29 lead into halftime. Read more »

Money’s leaner lifts Vikings in upset of Warriors

WILMINGTON – Sanford had scored 47 points and held a five-point lead through three quarters of its game Jan. 12 against St. Elizabeth, and the lead remained at five (53-48) with just over five minutes to go. After Elijah Dockery got the Vikings to within two on a three-point shot, the Warriors decided to spread the offense in an effort to burn as much time off the clock as possible.

The strategy appeared to be working, as two free throws by Sean Williams with about a minute remaining restored the five-point margin at 56-51. Three missed free throws in the final 50 seconds, however, opened the door for the Vikings, and Jordan Money made sure they took advantage. He took an inbounds pass with the clock under 10 seconds and hit a 12-foot falling-down bank shot that proved to be the winner in a 57-56 win at the St. E Center. Read more »

NEWARK – Ursuline had taken control of Friday night’s girls basketball state championship game against Sanford by shutting down the Warriors during the second and third quarters. With an 11-point lead heading into the fourth, it seemed all that stood between top-seeded Ursuline and the trophy was eight minutes.

But No. 3 Sanford (20-5) came alive in the fourth, twice pulling within one point. It was 35-34 Raiders after Warriors senior Chrishyanah Alston hit her fifth layup of the quarter with just 18 seconds to go. Ursuline sophomore Maggie Connolly, however, was perfect in six free throw attempts in the final minute, including four of four in the last 12 seconds, as the Raiders (20-5) prevailed, 39-34, for the school’s second consecutive basketball championship, third in the last five years and 16th overall.

Raiders cap emotional day with victory at Sanford

HOCKESSIN – On the morning of Feb. 18, John Noonan did not know if he’d see senior forward Kailyn Kampert in uniform for Ursuline’s girls basketball showdown at Sanford. Kampert herself wasn’t sure she’d be ready to play.
The funeral for Kampert’s grandfather, former Wilmington police chief Harry Manelski, had been held earlier at St. Elizabeth Church in Wilmington. Kampert’s teammates showed their support by attending the viewing and Mass, and Kampert supported them back by suiting up when the top-ranked Raiders met No. 2 Sanford on Thursday night. They were all happy Kampert was there, as the senior played a key role in Ursuline’s 55-44 victory in front of an energetic full house. Read more »

Team effort leads top-ranked Raiders past Sanford, 40-35

WILMINGTON – With their best player spending extended stretches on the bench in the final three quarters because of fouls, the Ursuline Raiders had an opportunity to see how they would handle adversity. They responded quite well, thank you, in a 40-35 home win over Sanford Wednesday night that pitted the top two girls teams against each other.

No. 2 Sanford, following the strategy employed by earlier Raiders opponents, did its best to take senior all-stater Adrianna Hahn out of the game with tight man-to-man defense. Hahn helped the Warriors by getting into early foul trouble, coming out of the game midway through the second quarter after picking up her third. She hit the bench again in the third after being whistled for her fourth, and, with 4:56 remaining in the contest and Ursuline leading by seven, Hahn fouled out. The Raiders maintained the advantage without her and won their regular-season finale to finish 19-1. Read more »
