The week gets off to a slow start because of the federal holiday, with just the Saint Mark’s wrestling team scheduled to be in action on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. But after that, it’s back to a more normal schedule as the winter seasons get through the midpoint.

Girls basketball

Tuesday

Padua (5-5) at Hodgson (2-3), 5 p.m.

Saint Mark’s (8-2) at Delaware Military (6-2), 7:15 p.m. The Spartans travel to the dome to meet the Seahawks. Saint Mark’s has won three straight, while DMA will be seeking to end a two-game skid. The two teams have just two seniors among them; both play for the Seahawks.

Tuesday

St. Elizabeth (8-1) at Saint Mark’s (7-1), 7:15 p.m. Both the Vikings and the Spartans have had very good seasons thus far.

This game promises to be an uptempo, fun affair.
