The girls basketball season saw a strange week as games were postponed due to a storm that provided heavy rain and winds.  The forecast this week is for snow and very frigid temps so check the schedules before heading to the gyms.


The Ursuline Raiders and Caravel Bucs continue to succeed against some of the better out of state competition they are facing.  These two teams will meet at Caravel in February but in the meantime they both have some tough games coming up.


The conference races are heating up and that includes the Diamond state that has 4 teams in a tight battle for the championship.  Archmere, DMA, Conrad and St Elizabeth’s will start facing each other in the coming weeks.  St Elizabeth’s beat Conrad 


The Independent conference has a pair of young teams that are looking to make a run to the state tournament in Tower Hill and Wilmington Friends.  Both teams meet on Friday night in a rare prime time game.  They play at Tower Hill at 7 PM.
