St. Louis Priory High School's wrestling team came into the season under the radar. Now though, they're known as the Metro League champions.

The team placed second at the John Burroughs tournament, third at a highly competitive St. Clair Tournament and first at its own Priory Tournament.

Catholic attorney protects rights of people of Islamic faith

Robert West, a graduate of St. Louis Priory School and St. Louis University, serves as staff attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations and works on civil rights cases. He sees a lot of parallels with Muslims, especially recent immigrants, and Catholic immigrants centuries ago, and is inspired by Catholic social teaching. He is helping the Alnusour family who say they have been under threats from a neighbor in south St. Louis. West visited their home and spoke with Eyad and his wife, Laila.

The young family — dad, mom and three children — is happy with their two-story home in south St. Louis, in a normally quiet residential area.

But they fear they may have to move from their home of more than a year and a half after encountering what they see as a bullying neighbor motivated by his hatred of Muslims.
