As the girls’ fall high school sports progress toward the postseason, the various field hockey teams will display their talents this weekend at the University of Delaware. Rullo Stadium will be the site of the annual Turf Bowl, giving teams from all over the state the chance to play at a Division I collegiate venue.

On the volleyball court, the Catholic high schools continue with their challenging schedules. And cross country gets ready for the Joe O’Neill Invitational, which brings nearly every high school team to northern New Castle County for the biggest meet of the season.
