CBC, Valle Catholic rise to the top in state football playoffs

Christian Brothers College High School’s Austin Simpson hoisted the state championship trophy after defeating Blue Springs at the Missouri State High School Athletic Association Class 6 football championship Nov. 18 at Plaster Stadium at Missouri State University in Springfield, Mo.

Christian Brothers College High School and Valle Catholic High School reached the finals of the state playoffs this season, overcoming challenges along the way.

CBC victorious

Christian Brothers College High School defeated Blue Springs 31-14 Nov. 18 to win the Class 6 football championship. The game was played at Plaster Stadium in Springfield, Mo.

CBC ended the season 13-1, with a 12-game winning streak after losing its second game of the season to CBC of Memphis.

CBC’s wrestling program is on solid footing

Five Christian Brothers College High School wrestlers won medals at MSHSAA state championships. From the left are Kyle Prewitt, Cevion Severado, DJ Shannon, Josh Saunders and Malik Johnson.

Hard work personifies the wrestling program at Christian Brothers College High School, where five state medalists, including three state champions, led the team to a second-place finish overall at the Missouri Class 4 tournament.

All five have at least another year of eligibility. Last season, the team finished eighth.

Head coach Cornell Robinson is looking forward to next season, but his delight in the efforts of his wrestlers this season, which concluded Feb. 18, is obvious. "It's a good stepping stone to where we need to be, but I was proud of the kids overall," he said.

Christian Brothers College High School senior Adam Wittenauer holds up rosaries handmade by current students to contribute to the rosary project began by CBC alumnus Norb Butz.

In a literal sense, the addition of 150 rosaries barely ranks as a proverbial drop in the bucket, just 1.5 percent toward a goal of 10,000.

But figuratively, it signifies so much more, linking generations and symbolizing the motto of Christian Brothers College High School: "Men for tomorrow, brothers for life."

Vianney’s talent, teamwork shine in volleyball

CBC vs. Vianney volleyball

St. John Vianney High School's volleyball team is showing teamwork and talent early in the 2015 season.

The team took a 25-17, 25-14 victory over a young Christian Brothers College High School squad April 7 to open its season 5-0.

"We have some upperclassmen, so we've been together a long time, and that's what you're seeing," Vianney coach Jeff Gabbert said after the game.

Having palyed varsity for three or four years together, they've developed a bond. "They're under control, and then they explode when they really need to get into the ball."

CBC links service, leadership in Lasallian tradition

CBC High School junior Ryan Wittenauer, right, and other members of the class of 2015 leadership council were inducted into office during the CBC Class of 2015 Leadership Service at the school in Town and Country. Members of the junior class were presented with class rings and crosses and were charged to be leaders, both on campus and in the world outside CBC.

Ryan Wittenauer is going places.

And so are 227 other juniors at Christian Brothers College High School in Town and Country. They are finishing their school year by spending parts of the next three weeks in community service, from mission trips across the country to helping their neighbors in St. Louis.

A program May 9 at the school also made clear that these students now are leaders of the school, role models as members of the senior class next year.
