Nearly every girls high school team in every sport had last week off, but that respite has come to an end. Beginning April 8, the week’s calendar is chock full of activities.

The wet weather, coupled with the Easter break, means some teams have played just a game or two in their respective sports. Still, there are a few games to watch, and plenty from which to choose. A unique undertaking occurs over the upcoming weekend, as Wilmington becomes the focal point for Ursuline lacrosse.

Don’t forget to confirm dates and times before making the trip. Schedules are always subject to change.
