WILMINGTON – Salesianum and Hodgson engaged in an old-fashioned pitchers’ duel when the teams met in state baseball tournament quarterfinal action on May 31, but the Sals’ bats came through late in a 4-2 victory. Sallies moves on to face top-seeded Conrad on Thursday night at Frawley Stadium.

The 13th-seeded Silver Eagles scratched out a run in the top of the fourth, and with the way their pitcher, William Hart, was dealing, it appeared that lone tally might be enough. But No. 5 Salesianum rebounded to tie the game in the fifth and scored three times in the bottom of the sixth. That was enough to get the victory. Read more »

MIDDLETOWN – Abby Podolsky had been here before – just a year ago, in fact – as Delaware high school tennis’ top seed in second singles, facing a formidable opponent from perennial power Caesar Rodney. She came in a very respectable second place in 2016, but on May 26 at St. Andrew’s School, Podolsky made sure there would be no repeat.

With CR’s Halle Parker on a different court playing for the first singles championship, Podolsky matched up with the Riders’ Natasha Sijan, the two-time defending champion at third singles. Podolsky split the first two sets with Sijan, built up a big lead in the third and deciding set before battling to a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 win. The triumph capped an undefeated season for the Archmere senior. For Sijan, the two-time defending state champion at third singles, it was her first and only loss of the season. Read more »

BRANDYWINE HUNDRED – Delmar’s volleyball team and its energetic supporters traveled more than 100 miles on Nov. 5 to meet Ursuline in the second round at Brandywine High School, but, unfortuately for the Wildcats, the stay in northern New Castle County was short-lived.

The Raiders came out swinging, getting a trio of kills from freshman Corinne Furey on their way to a 9-3 advantage. Delmar earned a temporary reprieve on an unforced error, but Ursuline followed with five straight. The first and last of those points came on kills courtesy of Kylie Nocket, one a tip, the other an unplayable smash. Read more »
