    Archmere Rugby Players Competing for Collegiate National Title

    While they were at Archmere, Noah Niumataiwalu ‘16 and Chris Curcio ‘14 were part of the Auks Rugby team that claimed not only a state and regional title, but then went on to win the National Championship. Just three years after starting its rugby program, Archmere reached the pinnacle of the sport at the high school level by defeating Rock Rugby from Texas 17-5 in the championship game of the High School Rugby Challenge (HSRC) Single School 7s National Championship.
     
    This season, both boys are on the starting squad of the Saint Joseph’s University Rugby team that just beat West Chester University 24-7 in the semifinals and then defeated Rowan University 27-11 in the Championship match, becoming the Conference Champions and securing their spot to play in the USA Rugby Nationals. This is the second year in a row that Saint Joe’s has earned the D1AA Fall 15’s Championship.
     
    In the semifinal conference match, Chris Curcio ’14 made headlines with his run that caused the Hawks to take a 12-0 lead. In the championship match, it was Noah Niumataiwalu ’16 who exploited a gap in the Rowan defensive line and dove in for the first score of the night. Noah was named the Hawks Rugby Landmark Americana of City Line Avenue Man of the Match for the 2017 MARC D1AA Championship Weekend. In addition, he was named D1AA MVP for the MARC.
      
    As conference champions, the Saint Joe’s Hawks have secured a bid to the first round of USA Rugby Collegiate Nationals in Ohio on November 18th & 19th. Archmere rugby players Mark Dombroski ‘17, Ryan O'Neill ‘17 and Tanner McIlrath ’16 are also on the Saint Joe’s team.

The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a charitable bike ride that raises money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Liz, Justin and Tim completed the race, held in Saratoga Springs, NY the week of September 14-17th. The Ryan's joined hundreds of riders who came together from all over the world to help raise money to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. This year, there were five Rides to Cure Diabetes across the country. The Rides, which occur August through November, each offer a unique and unforgettable experience and multiple route options ranging from 32 to 100 miles. In addition to NY, locations included Amelia Island, FL, Loveland, CO, La Crosse, WI and Tucson, AZ.

    2011 Archmere Graduate Trevor Brown Launches Company to Fight Opioid Crisis

    Archmere Academy graduate Trevor Brown '11, a Biomedical Engineer, is making headlines for a project he started working on as part of his senior project at the University of South Carolina. Trevor recently started his own company with the aim of being on the forefront of the opioid epidemic. DEact Medical Solutions was launched in April with his older brother Kyle, a 2008 graduate of Archmere. Privately funded at the moment, DEact has created a drug-neutralizing pouch that, when you add water, takes the active ingredients in drugs and renders them useless.

    DEact disposal technology offers the ability to chemically neutralize a broad range of pharmaceutical substances, reducing environmental impact and decreasing the opportunity for diversion. Through partnerships with local healthcare facilities, community agencies, home care and hospice, funeral homes, realtors, and others, DEact strives to reduce the amount of unused or expired prescription drugs in homes and stop addiction before it begins.

    At the moment, DEact works out of a lab at the University of Delaware's STAR campus and an office space at the Emerging Enterprise Center, the small business incubator on the riverfront in Wilmington. At the Enterprise Center, DEact was one of 11 companies to submit a three-minute video pitch in a competition called "Swim with Sharks". The winner gets a package totaling more than $22,000 in cash and services. DEact is one of three finalists that will compete at a live pitch event on Friday, September 22nd.

  • Amanda Phelan ’06 for Harper's Bizarre, Photography by Winnie Au

    Fashion Designer Amanda Phelan '06 Featured in The Museum of Modern Art

    2006 Archmere Academy graduate Amanda Phelan, the Creative Director and CEO of designer fashion label "Phelan", will be featured in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) starting in October. This is the first time in 73 years that MoMA has included an exhibit from the world of fashion and design. Amanda's Asymmetrical Metallic Shift Dress from the PHELAN S16 Collection will be featured in the shift dress category of "Items" on the 6th floor of MoMA.

    After graduating from Archmere, Amanda attended Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied painting before completing a degree in textiles. After completing her studies, she worked as a knitwear designer for top-tier labels Alexander Wang and Nicole Miller.
     
    As an emerging designer, Amanda distinguished herself by her unusual performance based runway shows, and forward thinking textile fabrications. She debuted her Spring 2016 Collection at New York Fashion Week in September 2015 to critical acclaim and has since been able to forge her own path in the industry, known for incorporating some sort of performance element into what she creates.

    The MoMA exhibit details are as follows:
     
    "Items: Is Fashion Modern?"
    The Museum of Modern Art
    October 1, 2017 – January 28, 2018
     
    Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present, past—and sometimes the future—of 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries—and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi’s 501s, the Breton shirt, and the Little Black Dress, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari, the pearl necklace, the kippah, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers, engineers, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials, approaches, and techniques—extending this conversation into the near and distant futures, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombination and use. Driven first and foremost by objects, not designers, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionality, culture, aesthetics, politics, labor, identity, economy, and technology.
