Football

The Oracles’ football team hosted the Oak Hill Golden Eagles out of Converse, IN for the first round of sectionals. They got out to a 21-7 halftime lead, fueled by Seth Waters’ two passing touchdowns and his defensive interception. The Oracles went on to dominate the second half, rushing for two touchdowns and shutting the Golden Eagles out on defense. They advanced to the second round of sectionals with a 35-7 win.

In the second round of sectionals, the Oracles traveled to Lewis Cass. The first quarter was quiet, as both teams remained scoreless. The second quarter came and went as well, with the only score coming from the Kings, who ran the ball in for a three yard score, yet missed the PAT. At the half, the score was 6-0, Lewis Cass. During the second half, the scoring prohibition ended, with Lewis Cass extending their lead from 6-0 to 33-0. However, the Oracles got on the board with 2:26 left in the game on a 63 yard pass to Blake Carroll. The two point conversion was no good, and the Lewis Cass Kings ended the Oracles season, with a final score of 33-6. The Oracles will graduate six players, Ty Watson, Jared Mowdy, Adam Bowen, Adam Rider, Ben Lucas, and Jaden Kinzie, as well as a foreign exchange student, Joe Lammers, and two managers, Cassidy Kelly and Ian Chapman.

 

Boys’ Soccer

The boys’ Oracle soccer team went into Sectionals on a streak, only losing only once of their last six games in the regular season. In Sectionals, the Oracles had to face their cross county rivals in the Carroll Cougars. When they played during the season, the result was a 1-1 tie. Knowing that this game couldn’t end in a tie, the boys knew that they had to pull out a win to stay in the bracket. Halfway through the first half, a Delphi player was fouled inside Carroll’s box, in which a penalty kick was derived. Freshman Ilan Licona was able to shrug off the immense pressure, scoring the penalty. The rest of the game was back and forth. Delphi’s defense was able to repeatedly make stands, holding Carroll’s offense at bay. The final siren went off, and a cry of joy arose from the Delphi crowd. The lone goal was able to carry Delphi into the next round, where they faced North White. All that can be said about the game is that Delphi lost 3-0. Their record at the end of the season was an amazing 10-7-1. This is amazing because this is the same team that only won two games in the previous season. Hope arises from despair as the boys’ soccer team the majority of their core returning for next year.

 

Girls’ Soccer

The girls’ soccer team was put up to the daunting task of playing Northwestern in their sectional game. With such a dynamic attacking team, such as Northwestern, it is really hard to keep them from scoring. Delphi was able to keep any one player from scoring all of the goals, but many Northwestern players have good talent. Six Northwestern girls were able to score in the game. The end result was an 8-0 loss to the better team. The lady Oracles ended their season a record of 1-13. With Delphi having such a young team, this experience will help them in the future by gaining experience.

 

Volleyball

For the volleyball sectional, the girls had to travel to Clinton Prairie. There waiting for them were the Seeger Patriots.  The game ended up with a 3-0 loss, with Seeger advancing. The main stat that hurt the Oracles the most was the fact they had 21 ball handling errors. Seeger, on the other hand, only had three. The first and last sets of the game were hard fought, put the Oracles couldn’t put up any digits on their side of the scoreboard. The set scores were 19-25, 15-25, and 20-25. The girls volleyball team is losing four seniors, all of whom regularly appeared in each set. Their ending record was 2-23.

 

Boys’ Cross Country

The boys’ cross country team was able to fill out a full team for Sectionals this year for the first time in several years. Therefore, they could then qualify for team competition. Junior Max Kender was able to be the first Delphi runner to cross the finish line, with a time of 19:08. Max was only five spots away from being able to move on to Regionals. Sophomore Nick Roberson, sophomore Michael Bernfield  and junior Skyler Lyons were all able to beat their personal records from the year in the sectional meet. Going into the meet, the Oracles were the underdogs, predicted to place last. The Oracles, however, were able to beat Central Catholic and place ahead of them. With no seniors of the team, this cross country team will be back and ready for action next year.

 

Boys’ Tennis

The Oracles got past the first round of sectionals with a bye, but lost to Twin Lakes 0-5, who later lost to Western 2-3. The Oracles were 5-8 this season, picking up wins against Rensselaer, Carroll, Maconaquah, Taylor, and Carroll, again. The team will graduate seniors Braxton Thompson and Hayden Welk.

 

Girls’ Golf

The girls’ golf team went to sectionals with only three girls on their roster, Abigail Bieghler, Bella Smith and Peyton Resler. Due to their inability to bring four golfers, the girls were ineligible to post a team score. However, on an 18 hole course, the girls did well, scoring a 131, 139 and a 147, in the aforementioned order. None of the girls are graduating this year, so the team hopes to bring them back next year.
