WOODCREST – St. Mark’s battled in its boys volleyball match at Conrad, but the Red Wolves had too much firepower and swept the Spartans, 3-0, on the afternoon of May 10.

St. Mark’s – who dressed just seven players – had few answers for the Red Wolves’ Logan Muller. The senior hitter led a potent attack with 12 kills, and he threw in a block for good measure. John Hoopes had four kills, while Nicholas Shortlidge added three. Read more »

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 »

MILLTOWN – No. 6 Ursuline avenged two earlier losses and swept the third-seeded Padua Pandas in the state volleyball tournament quarterfinals on Nov. 8 at St. Mark’s High School.

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 »
