Boys spring high school sports teams are getting ready for the second halves of their seasons, and Thursday could be one of those days you’ll want to mark on your calendar. Two baseball games that day involving four of the top six teams in the state are on the schedule.
Elsewhere, there is plenty of intriguing action. Archmere welcomes a worthy foe to its Claymont campus, and Salesianum continues its prominent national schedule. And in volleyball, the last two undefeated teams take to the court on Tuesday.
St. Elizabeth (5-5) at Archmere (6-3), 4 p.m.
Ss. Peter and Paul at Chapelgate Christian, 4 p.m.
St. Elizabeth at Sanford (4-4), 4:15 p.m.
Archmere at Tatnall (3-4), 3:45 p.m.
Conrad (8-2) at Salesianum (8-2), 4 p.m. The veteran Red Wolves travel to Salesianum for a meeting between two teams ranked in Delaware Live’s top 5. The Sals are coming off a thrilling walkoff win against Middletown, while Conrad suffered just its second loss of the season on Sunday at Saint Mark’s.
Delaware Military (9-2) at Saint Mark’s (9-2), 4 p.m. Meanwhile, two more heavyweights will take the field simultaneously at Saint Mark’s, with both ranked in the top six in Delaware. The Seahawks rallied for a walkoff win against the Spartans last season, eventually reaching the state championship game. No doubt that day will provide motivation for the veteran Spartans.
Key at Ss. Peter and Paul, 6 p.m.
Ss. Peter and Paul at Beth Tfiloh, 2:30 p.m.
Salesianum at Sussex Central (6-3), 11 a.m.
