The Swim and Dive Team dove into the start of its busy weekend with a dual meet against De Smet at Forest Park Community College last Friday. The Bills had a different approach to this meet than its meet last week against CBC because De Smet has a smaller team, so many varsity swimmers swam in events that they don’t typically swim. The team swam better than they expected, and SLUH coasted to a commanding 145-41 win. In seven of the nine individual events at the meet, including diving, the Bills swept first, second, and third place, winning every event in the meet.

The St. Louis U. High varsity cross country top seven runners, in the wake of a stellar performance at its home Forest Park cross country (FPXC) meet, traditionally take a week off of competition to prepare for a race the next weekend.

The St. Louis U. High soccer squad continued its season of  “almosts” this week against CBC and Vianney. The team missed opportunities to secure victory in both games and left the week with two losses.

The Jr. Bills (3-6-1) played their third game of the CBC tournament against the Vianney Griffins last Thursday night. After a loss against De Smet Jesuit last Tuesday, the boys hoped to bounce back against an evenly-matched Vianney team.

The middle of the gridiron season has approached for the St. Louis U. High varsity football team. With last Friday’s loss to Jefferson City High School, the Jr. Bills have played four of their nine regular season games and have yet to earn a victory. The loss continued this season’s pattern of both lackluster offensive performances and ineffective defensive play.
