Catholic Conference players pepper all-state roster; Vikings’ McCarthy named coach of year

The Catholic Conference had three teams among the final four in the state tournament, including both finalists, Ursuline and Padua. The conference is also well-represented on the all-state teams, which were released Nov. 14, the day after Ursuline won the state championship. Selections are made by the Delaware Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association. Read more »

NEWARK – Ursuline’s 2017 state volleyball championship is the school’s first since 2009, but for coach Sue Heiss and her players – in particular the seniors – it means so much more. Taylor Wright and Sam Davis were on the varsity squad as freshmen in 2014, a campaign remembered more for the fact that the Raiders missed the state tournament than the team’s improvement upon 2013’s win total by four matches.

The Raiders’ 8-7 mark in 2014 was not enough to get them into the final 16-team state tournament. The seeds had been planted, however, for this year’s championship, which the school earned on Nov. 13 with a five-set nail-biter over Catholic Conference rival Padua at the Bob Carpenter Center.

NEWARK – Taylor Wright spent most of the evening of Nov. 13 on a mission to restore Ursuline to the top of Delaware’s high school volleyball pyramid. Whether through a swing of her powerful right arm or a timely block, the Raiders’ senior outside hitter put on a performance that will be long remembered.

Wright’s final act – after two-plus hours of sometimes nerve-wracking, always exciting volleyball – sealed the deal for the third-seeded Raiders. She came in from the left side, jumped one more time and sent a spike down the middle to lift Ursuline past top-seeded Padua, 15-11, in the fifth set. That gave the Raiders a 3-2 win and their 12th state championship in front of a full house and of 2,836 at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, a record for the volleyball final. Read more »
