Girls high school teams get back in the swing


For The Dialog

This is a busy week for the Catholic school girls. Starting with volleyball, let’s take a look at the remainder of this week.



St. Mark’s (1-0) at Smyrna (0-0), 5 p.m. The Spartans won their opener last week, 3-0, and look to get to 2-0 to start the season with two road wins. The Eagles open their season gunning for the upset..

Archmere (0-0) at Padua (0-0), 7:30 p.m. My two top teams in the state square off to start the season as two-time defending champion Padua tries to start the season off with the bang against a more experienced Auks team. These teams went five sets last year, with Padua winning, 3-2.


St. Elizabeth at Dickinson (0-0), 5 p.m.

St. Thomas More (1-0) at Newark Charter (1-1), 5 p.m. St. Thomas More takes on a team that has performed well in its first season as a varsity program.

Friends (0-0) at St Marks, 5:15 p.m.


Archmere at Delmarva Christian (0-1), 5 p.m.


Padua at Paul VI (Va.), 1 p.m.
