Any doubts whether the De Smet Jesuit High School soccer team is having fun this season were erased during its district semifinal game against Parkway North Oct. 27.

De Smet won the game 5-0, and, just as important, the players felt they played up to their potential and that the hard work they have put in since before the season started has paid off.

Griffin Morgan, a senior midfielder, scored a goal in the semifinal, controlled...

Ellie Burger competed on the final day of the state tennis championships Oct. 17 in Springfield. Burger, a junior at St. Joseph’s Academy, finished second in the tennis singles competition.

The smiles tell a lot about the recently completed golf and tennis seasons at St. Joseph's Academy.

The joy wasn't necessarily about the teams' success in the state tournaments -- a second-place finish in golf and a third-place title in tennis, along with individual achievements.

Ellie Burger, a junior who came in second in tennis singles competition, said her teammates made the season so enjoyable. "Everyone clicked right off th...

Kicking the ball on a fast defensive charge, Rosati-Kain’s goalie Nina Migneco made her final save of 14 in the game. Rosati-Kain beat Webster Groves 2-0.

Rosati-Kain field hockey goalie Nina Migneco reached to her right and kicked the ball away. She reached to her left and did the same thing. Then she blocked a shot that was looped over her shoulder.

Migneco made 14 saves against Webster Groves High School on Oct. 12. The talented 5-foot-6 senior stood tall in goal, helping her team shut out Webster Groves 2-0.

Rosati-Kain improved to 10-6 with two games remaining in the season....

Three is an important number to people of faith, starting with the Trinity. Jesus was tempted three times in the desert and fell three times carrying the cross. The angels cry "holy" three times to the triune God (Isaiah 6:3).

In baseball, the number three has significance as well. A triple play, three strikes you're out, three outs, three bases on the field, three outfielders.

I'm picking three people associated with the St. Lou...

St. Mary’s Ian Comerford and Chaminade’s Cam Cavlovich competed for the ball late in a match won by Chaminade 6-1.

Chaminade's soccer standouts Tim Steele and Cameron Cavlovich haven't received near the attention as basketball star Tyler Cook.

They certainly aren't as imposing physically as the 6-foot-8 power forward with a four-star recruiting rating whose commitment to the University of Iowa last month made headlines.

But they have a few things in common. They're seniors and superb athletes. They've helped bring success to their school's te...

Trinity Catholic High School volleyball players from left, Jess Eaton, Holly Hennessey, Abby Grumich, Melissa Peters and Kyra Walsh celebrated in the Titans’ match with Cardinal Ritter College Prep. Trinity won, 2-0, raising its record to 13-7 this season.

When the players on Trinity Catholic High School's varsity volleyball team talk about their squad, "fun" is the operative word.

One reason might be their familiarity with each other. Of the 10 players on the varsity roster, half played volleyball in the Catholic Youth Apostolate's CYC sports program at Sacred Heart Parish in Florissant since the fourth grade. Four of the girls played at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Parish in Florissant....

De Smet Jesuit High School’s Bryant Perry leapt to avoid St. Louis University High’s Daniel Jackson. SLUH beat rival De Smet Jesuit 63-13.

St. Louis University High School's football team works as a cohesive unit on and off the field.

On Sept. 13, several players took part in the Tri My Best Adaptive Triathlon through the Cerebral Palsy Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital, which raised funds to support school-aged children with motor disabilities.

"It was very near and dear to me to participate in it," said quarterback Mitchell Batschelett, whose sister has cere...


Two Catholic schools with top-notch field hockey programs met Sept. 11, and both Villa Duchesne and Cor Jesu played up to expectations. Villa Duchesne came away with a 2-0 win on their new artificial turf at Condie Field.

The win put Villa Duchesne at 6-0-2 on the year. Cor Jesu left with a 7-2-1 record. Villa won 5-0 Sept. 15 against Kirkwood, and Cor Jesu lost 2-0 to John Burroughs.

Villa Duchesne had a couple chances early in...

Ursuline Academy tennis player Sarah Dreyer returned a shot in a match against Mehville High School during the Webster Groves Invitational Tournament, a section of which was played at Rockwood Summit High School in Fenton.

When they step on the court, members of Ursuline Academy's tennis team are dedicated to toughness, selflessness and being a good person -- traits that translate off the court as well.

The focus for the school's athletic teams is on character, though winning often is a consequence of the way players act. For the tennis team, things are clicking along, as shown by the way they conduct themselves and with an 8-1 start partway through the W...

John F. Kennedy Catholic High School’s Maggie Kilcullin turned a play to first against St. Dominic High School Aug. 31.

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.

Hermann, who had a solid season last year, credited the support she received from her fielde...
