The girls basketball season will heat up this week as the snow melts outside.  The snow last week knocked out a full schedule of games meaning the next 4 weeks will be filled with a lot of action.


The Diamond State conference had a real big game last week as Archmere traveled to DMA.  The Auks won their fifth game in a row 48-38. The Auks improved to 3-0 in conference play.  Senior Lucy Oliver had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds


Saturday saw a great matchup as Dover made a trip North to face Padua.  The Senators scored 18 first quarter points to lead 18-10/  The Pandas would score 41 points in the second and third quarter to lead 51-44 after the third quarter.  The fourth quarter was back and forth and the Pandas picked up the home win 61-56.
