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. Ursuline, the No. 6 seed in the state tournament, was all business in dispatching No. 22 Delmar in a sweep. The set scores were 25-12, 25-17 and 25-11.

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 »

MAGNOLIA – St. Thomas More was coming off its best-ever volleyball regular season, having won 12 of its 13 contests and earning an 11th seed and a first-round home match on Nov. 3 at Bishop Saltarelli Gymnasium. But No. 22 Delmar was not impressed, going home with a 3-0 sweep over the Ravens. The set scores were 25-18, 25-21 and 26-24.

Delmar, which earned its tournament berth as champions of the Henlopen South conference, was ready to go from the jump, taking a 9-1 first-set lead after three straight aces by Carly Covington. St. Thomas More responded, closing to within two on two occasions, both on aces. The first, to make the score 16-14 Delmar, came from Sarah Reeves, and the second was served up by Logan Hughes that made it 19-17. Read more »

NEWARK – Zoe Akoto had a host of important points this season for Archmere Academy, none more so than the two that ended the 2014 state volleyball championship final against the Charter School of Wilmington. First, with the fourth set in extra points and the score tied at 27, Akoto painted the sideline with a smash. Then, leading 28-27, on match point No. 4 inside the raucous Bob Carpenter Center, Akoto again had an open lane down the left side.

The sophomore returned the push kill with one of her own. A few Force players threw themselves in the direction of the ball, but the kill found the floor, and fifth-seeded Archmere completed the mild upset of undefeated and second-seeded Charter, 3-1, for the championship. The sets were 25-10, 16-25, 26-24 and 29-27. Read more »

With that, Archmere (14-4) advanced to Monday night’s final, where they will play undefeated Charter School of Wilmington at approximately 6:30 p.m. at the Bob Carpenter Center on the University of Delaware campus.

MILLTOWN – Charter School had Padua down, 2-0, in the first semifinal of the girls’ state volleyball tournament, and the Force was within four points of sweeping the two-time defending champion. But the Pandas fought back, taking a tough third and a dominating fourth set, to send the match to a fifth and deciding set.

It was a scenario Charter had not faced all year. The Force had lost just two sets total in their first 17 matches. Olivia DiMaio said her team needed to stay the course.

“Just take it point by point, don’t get ahead of ourselves and keep our heads right,” the senior hitter said. Read more »
