Athletics recap for the week of 11/1 - 11/6

There were fewer competitions this past week with the fall season beginning to wrap up. The volleyball season finished the week before and the boys soccer team was off as they waited to hear where they would place in the state tournament. They found out late Friday, they are the #12 seed and will be on the road against Delaware Military Academy in the first round. The field hockey, cross country, and football teams all competed late in the week. 

Field Hockey | The field hockey team travelled to Wilmington for their final game of the season against Tower Hill School. The first quarter was clean on both sides but Tower was able to score midway through the second quarter. Addy Zorrilla ‘24 had another impressive game in goal with over 10 saves to keep the Saints within striking distance. After a scoreless 3rd quarter by both teams, the Hillers were able to find insurance goals with back to back goals with 5 minutes left. The Saints were not able to answer and lost 0-3 to finish the season. The team, Coach Davila, and Coach Ewald would like to thank and recognize their seniors, Alani Davila ‘22, Adelaide Dixon ‘22, Piper Jenkins ‘22, and manager Jun Choi ‘22 for their leadership and passion bringing field hockey back after two years. 

Football | The Cannon Game is always a competitive game with Tatnall and St. Andrew’s playing their best to win the Cannon. Both defenses came out to play in the first half, as neither team could find the endzone in the first half. In the 3rd quarter, Tatnall was able to score but St. Andrew’s tied it at 7-7 when Mike Lilley ‘22 found Brandon Graves ‘22 for a TD pass and catch. Tatnall was able to take control of the game in the fourth quarter, scoring multiple times. St. Andrew’s tried to make a comeback but Tatnall seized all momentum and won the Cannon Game 25-7. Top individual performances by the Saints include, Phin Hunt ‘22 with 8 tackles including 4 TFL; Ford Chapman ‘23 8 tackles; Nick Osbourne ‘23 89 rushing yards; Griffin Patterson ‘24 3 catches for 50 yards; Lilley 11-22 for 119 yards and 1 TD; and Graves adding 1 receiving TD to his St. Andrew’s season record. 

Cross Country | The cross country teams competed in the New Castle County Championship. Both teams had multiple personal records and impressive finishes. For the girls, the individual highlights were, Lily Murphy ‘23 running a PR of 19:41, dropping 40 seconds from her DISC race and running almost two minutes faster than her recorded time at Winterthur in 2019. Leah Horgan ‘25 dropped 30 seconds from DISCS, and had a PR with a time of 20:22. Caroline Meers ‘24 dropped 40 seconds on her PR to run a time of 22:33. Other PRs included Sofia Golab ‘25 (by 16 seconds), Seoyoon Kwon ‘23 (by 12 seconds), Josie Pitt ‘23 (by 27 seconds), and Devin Hundley ‘23 with a time of 23:19. The team placed 5th out of over 25 teams. The boys team also saw a lot of personal bests. Five of the seven runners in the varsity race ran PRs, Harry Murphy ‘23, Kyle Share ‘23, Austin Daly ‘22, Chris Onsomu ‘25, and Shawn Li ‘24 and one Alec Finch ‘22 ran a season-best time. Alec was the team's first finisher after working closely with Harry for the first 2.5 miles. Kyle ran a 50 second PR and broke 19 minutes. Chris ran a 20 second PR and broke 20 minutes. He was a scoring varsity runner for the first time this season. The team finished in 14th out of 29 teams.
