WILMINGTON – The stands at the 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington were filled to capacity to see St. Mark’s and Salesianum meet on the basketball court, and for the first time since Jan. 22, 2010 – spanning 17 games – the Spartans left with a victory over their archrival.

As is their style, St. Mark’s clamped down on defense when they needed to, and made enough free throws down the stretch to seal a 47-38 victory.

One of the players for St. Mark’s that night nine years ago was Sean Locke, who took his own life last July at the age of 23. This year’s game, and three others preceding it, was part of the SL24 Memorial Classic, which raised more than $208,000 for mental health awareness. It was an emotional evening for the Locke family, including his younger brother Aedan, a junior who started the game for the Spartans.
