School is back in session, and there have been no snow delays for a few days now. High school sports teams are trying to get their games in as the winter season enters its sixth week. The schedule includes a few intriguing basketball matchups, as well as a highly anticipated wrestling battle.

Girls

Basketball

Tuesday

Saint Mark’s (6-2) at Padua (3-4), 7:15 p.m.

Newark Charter (5-1) at St. Elizabeth (4-2), 7:15 p.m.

Thursday

Padua at Conrad (5-3), 5:15 p.m.

Caravel (6-4) at St. Elizabeth, 5:30 p.m. This remains a marquee matchup on the state girls’ basketball schedule, and this year’s battle should be fun to watch. Two seniors – one from each team – are the main weapons for their respective team. India Johnston paces the Bucs, while the Vikings are led by Rory Ciszkowski. But there is plenty of talent among the rest of the two rosters.
