The calendar says it’s mid August which means we are getting closer to the start of the DIAA volleyball season that kicks off on Sept. 6. Mike Lang and myself are working on the finalizing the Delaware Live volleyball livestream schedule for this fall, but wanted to take a quick break to bring you some of the volleyball matches to check out this year.
Volleyball Matches to Watch:
Tower Hill @ Padua on Sept. 6: The defending Champions head on the road and face a team that is looking for a bounce back season. The Pandas bring back a good core and we will see early if this team can compete for a championship again.
Cape Henlopen @ Smyrna on Sept. 14: The Henlopen North title could be decided in mid September when these two volleyball rivals meet.
Ursuline @ Saint Mark’s on Sept. 26: The Spartans lost a bunch to graduation but also return a solid defensive nucleus. The Raiders look to rebound after a tough season and their schedule is tough. These rivals always put on great matches and this late September clash will be a match to watch
Tower Hill at Wilmington Friends, Sept. 28: First meeting between the two teams without a Sachs (Tower Hill) or Nathan (Friends) on the court since 2012. The Quakers graduated just one senior from last year’s team.
Appo at Middletown, Sept. 29: This game seems to decide the Flight A champion more years than not. The teams played a 5-set classic last season. Both schools’ football teams have the night off.
Wilmington Charter @ Archmere on Oct. 3:
This match could give one of these two teams a leg up in the conference. I have seen a bunch of 5 set matches between these 2 teams and I wouldn’t be shocked if we have another one on October 3rd.
Smyrna at Caravel, Oct. 5: These two teams knocked on the door last year. Smyrna reached the quarters, and Caravel the semis. Both lost to Tower Hill. Caravel took a 5-setter at Smyrna last season.
DMA @ Caravel on Oct. 12: This is a big non conference match in mid october with two weeks left in the season. This match could determine seeding as both teams are poised to make a state tournament run.
Delmarva Christian at Ursuline, Oct. 14: How is DCS without several key seniors from last season? How has Ursuline rebounded from a disappointing 2022? By this game each team will have figured out how there seaon has gone, but this could line up for a great match.
Archmere at Newark Charter, Oct. 17: Could this be for the Diamond State championship? We will have to see.
