High school students blossom as TASK volunteers

Anna Schuermann sat patiently on the floor with her legs folded while her little buddy Xander Wurman stood behind her combing through her hair with his fingers.

St. Vincent Schools in Perryville make Catholic Education Honor Roll

Joseph Baer and Maegyn Huber worked in the computer lab April 9 at St. Vincent De Paul High School in Perryville. St. Vincent Schools is a nationally recognized Catholic Honor Roll School, placing it in the top 5 percent of Catholic schools in the nation.

The first of Bishop Louis DuBourg's recruits — Vincentian Fathers Felix DeAndreis and Joseph Rosati — traveled from France in 1817 and planted roots in Perryville. The soon-to-be St. Louis Diocese would never be the same.

After winning the Mid-States High School Hockey Challenge Cup Championship, the St. Louis University High team didn't want their on-ice celebration to end. So the driver of the Zamboni ice resurfacer waited patiently. But he needed to go to work.

Speedy Cardinal Ritter launches to victories

Cardinal Ritter College Prep’s Jaylin Hudson battled Bishop DuBourg High School’s Jailen Maxey for control of the basketball. After going into halftime with a 9-point lead, Cardinal Ritter pulled away in the second half for a 70-37 victory.

Fast-paced transitions are a hallmark this year for the Cardinal Ritter College Prep boys basketball team.

For example, against Bishop DuBourg High School Dec. 18, the Ritter team busted out after a 2-point lead in the second quarter, scampering full speed up and down the court to lead by 9 at halftime. Then the Lions of Ritter roared in the second half to a 70-37 win.

Cardinal Ritter, 9-3 on the season, scored more than 70 points seven times and 85 or more points three times so far this season.
