Snow wiped out the first two days of this high school sports week, which just means more action later this season. Another important week is on hand, with the SL24 Memorial Classic basketball event being held Friday and Saturday at the 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington to raise money for the UnLocke the Light Foundation.
Girls basketball and wrestling take the spotlight on Wednesday, with boys basketball picking up on Thursday and into the weekend. There is action in the pool the rest of this week.
Caravel (2-1) at Ursuline (4-1), 6:30 p.m. The Buccaneers and Raiders have spent several years at the top of Delaware’s girls basketball pantheon. Caravel is a young team with just two seniors on the roster, while the Raiders benefit from a bit more experience. The teams are poised for deep runs into the state tournament, and tonight could be a preview of a game a month from now.
