With six golfers qualifying for the state tournament and our first golfer to ever make the cut after the first day, there was a lot to be proud of this season. While most of the guys were disappointed with their individual output at states at Baywood, we have a ton of positives to take into next year. We only lost one starter to graduation, so the future is bright! Many of our golfers plan to play often in the offseason together so their bond will only grow stronger as they push each other to grow and improve. 
Team MVP - Evan Murray

Boys Volleyball returned to the court for the first time since the spring of 2019! The team of 11 featured two seniors, Evan Murray and Sean Justice. Freshman, Harrison Schlabach paced the team with 100 kills while Evan Murray served 20 aces and had 248 digs on the year. Seth Mifflin led the team in blocks with 30 and Sean Justice had 98 assists. The team competed against tough competition both locally and across the state with wins against local rival Sussex Academy and a road win at Caesar Rodney. The team will return nine players with experience next year.

Coach's Corner - Head Coach Eric Reiske
With a sophomore heavy roster, the baseball team fell just short of their 5th state tournament appearance ending the season at 9-9. We played eight state tournament teams this year and filled our schedule with challenging games, at times it was frustrating and we also saw some incredible performances around the field. Our three seniors found a way to lead during their time here and we will certainly miss them - Chandler Brown fought through arm pain and caught excellent games behind the plate, Carter Breasure reminded us what type of pitcher he can be and kept us competitive in several games, and Tommy Obertubbesing played a great 3B and had a great offensive year. We had some pretty excellent output both defensively and hitting that I believe will carry over through next year. Guys like Mason Bohinski stepped up and locked down positions, Malakai Jones was huge in big moments for us this year, Kasey Bell made huge advancements on the mound and the field, Dylan Briggs was excellent at multiple spots around the field to name just a few. I hope the guys recognize their potential and realize 9-9 is not their ceiling, but a launching point. We are well set up next year with a great group of kids who are ready to get the job done.

I loved every moment of this season and coaching these girls.
From day one they wanted to work and get better. What I love most about coaching is building relationships. I knew most of the girls, with the exception of a few freshman and a sophomore.  So for me it's about building trust in each player.
Winning is fun and definitely the most focused aspect of the game. What most people don't see are the small victories, the daily prayers as a team and growth as a player and a person. Success for me is not defined by our record as much as our growth. Every girl grew is some area of their life. I loved being a part of this team. This coaching staff was truly a blessing. Each operating in their strengths. From beginning to end, top to bottom there was unity and it showed.

   The Lady Royals are a young team with a great deal of potential for success in the future. Our 2023 season was plagued with injuries. However, with 25 players, the young team persevered against some top Division I and II teams. For example, the Lady Royals played a valiant game against St. George's Tech for their last game of the season. The game went into double overtime (100 minutes) and ended in a tie with this top Division I team which made the state tournament. 
  Many examples of positive comments were made by the opponents fans as well as referees. One example is from the game against the St. Mark's Lady Spartans. 
St. Mark's parents shared with some of our fans that this is the best playing team they have seen from Delmarva Christian. As a matter of fact, they were cheering when our team scored two goals against them during a regular season game this year. St. Mark's is ranked number two this year in Division II.
  The future is bright for our Lady Royals in that we only lost two seniors, Myra Browning and Elizabeth Moyer. Now that the varsity players have some experience of playing soccer at the high school level, we are looking forward to the 2024 Lady Royals soccer season.
