Larry Johnson closed one of the last practices of the St. Dominic High School jazz band's school year by reminding the students that they have more talent than they realize and can "take it to the next level."

Connecting with those in need is heart of service at Duchesne

Joachim and Ann Care Service, which provides charitable services in St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren counties.

In the Class 3 and Class 4 games of the state high school soccer championship finals at Soccer Park in Fenton Nov. 14, both of the Catholic school teams from the archdiocese lost, finishing a more than respectable second in the state. But they left knowing they just missed a first-place finish despite heroic efforts.

Anna Hermann didn't attract a lot of preseason chatter among those who follow high school softball in the St. Louis area.

But, as her pitching performance Aug. 31 against Kennedy Catholic High School showed, the St. Dominic senior is good enough to be in any discussion of top performers. She tossed a three-hitter in St. Dominic's 3-0 win.
