Archmere Physicians’ Society

We are proud to introduce the Archmere Physicians’ Society. Formed in 2017, the primary focus of the society is to create a resource for Archmere students and young alumni interested in pursuing a career in the field of medicine. Members will also have the opportunity to build and foster relationships with fellow physicians associated with Archmere Academy.

As a thank you, we invite Society members to join us for our inaugural reception on Tuesday June 13, 2017 in The Patio at Archmere Academy.  Our featured speaker will be Dr. Louis Bartoshesky ’62.

    2016 Archmere graduate and current St. Joseph's University student athlete Noah Niumataiwalu was recently named to the 2018 Penn Mutual College Rugby Championship "Dream Team" by Rugby Today. The list includes "exceptional players that shined on the pitch" while competing at the USA Sevens Rugby Collegiate Rugby Championship. The Championship was held June 1st and 2nd at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, PA. 

    While he was at Archmere, Noah was a member of the Auks Rugby team that claimed not only a state and regional title, but then went on to win the National Championship. Out of about 480 athletes on 40 teams in the men’s and women’s 2018 Penn Mutual College Rugby Championship, Noah was one of 12 men picked for the Rugby Today "Dream Team".

    St. Joe's Rugby Team Honors Mark Dombroski '17 at Tournament; Noah Niumataiwalu '16 Named MVP

    On April 23rd, the Saint Joseph's Rugby team traveled to Santa Clara University in California to compete in the 2018 Jesuit Cup 7’s Championship. The team played for two days, winning the tournament after a Championship match over Notre Dame University and taking home the "Pope Francis Cup". In their first big tournament since the passing of their teammate and Archmere graduate Mark Dombroski '17, St. Joe's made time to honor Mark throughout the weekend, including a bagpipe tribute during a pre-tournament ceremony and a prayer with Notre Dame in remembrance of Mark out at midfield after the Championship match. Mark's teammate since his days at Archmere, Noah Niumataiwalu '16, was named MVP of the tournament.

    As stated on the Hawk Rugby website, "It certainly was an emotional weekend for the Hawks as their fallen teammate Mark Dombroski (’21) weighed heavily on the team’s mind and the players credited their inspired performance to Mark. The tournament organizers named the MVP trophy in Mark’s honor which is known as the Jesuit Cup 7’s “Mark Lee Dombroski Most Outstanding Player” Award. It was only fitting that Noah Niumataiwalu, Mark’s high school and college teammate, would be the first recipient of the award after a fantastic performance for the Hawks all weekend." 

  • The Passing of Mark Dombroski ’17

    It is with great sadness that we inform you of the loss of a dear friend and recent graduate, Mark Dombroski ’17. Mark died while on a rugby tour in Bermuda with St. Joseph’s University. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Dombroski family along with Mark’s friends and classmates. The circumstances of Mark’s death are still under investigation by the authorities.
    The school community gathered in prayer Monday afternoon in the Oratory and again for a Memorial Mass Tuesday morning. During the Mass, we sang If I Could Just Sit With You Awhile by Martin Doman:
    Lord I need you now more than I know how
    So I humbly bow hidden in You.
    If I could just sit with You awhile
    If you could just hold me
    Nothing could touch me,
    Though I’m wounded, though I die
    If I could just sit with you awhile
    I need you to hold me
    Moment by moment til forever passes by.
    As more details emerge, we will inform the Archmere community about services. During this difficult time, we ask for your understanding and that you respect the privacy of Mark’s family and friends.
    Please keep the Dombroski family in your prayers.

Archmere music medalist Caroline Quinn ’17 placed first in college freshmen music theater and second for classical singing.
