Auks Receive All State Honors

Archmere once again is the only Co-Ed High School in the State of Delaware, to have at least one athlete make All State in every DIAA sponsored fall sport.  St. Mark’s, St. Elizabeth’s, Tatnall, Tower Hill, Friends didn’t do it.  Neither did Concord, Brandywine, Mt. Pleasant, Middletown, Hodgson, or any other public school.  Only Archmere in Co-Ed schools has this honor.

The list is headed up by Senior Football Player Conner Furey.  Conner was First Team All-State on both Offense at Tackle and Defense at Linebacker. The other First Team All State Athlete was Senior Volleyball Player Alexa Spense.

Earning Second Team All State were Soccer Players Seniors George Tsaganos and Brian Canfield, Field Hockey Senior Caroline Rath, and Women’s Cross Country Runner Junior Colleen Carney.  Third team honors were earned by Men’s Senior Cross Country Runner Colton Takata and Senior Soccer Player Geff Merz.

Way to go AUKS! It was a great Fall Season.
