Senior Luke Brawer threw a Hail-Mary pass under heavy pressure to senior Jarrett Schneider. Schneider took a couple of quick strokes towards the goal, faked, and launched a skip shot at the upper left corner, tying the game and keeping the season alive.
The St. Louis U. High volleyball team has moved on to the State quarterfinals after killing it in their district this past week. On Monday, SLUH played against Ritenour in the first round of the District Tournament with a dominating 25-10, 25-14 win. The team took home the first place trophy after crushing Francis Howell Central 25-15, 25-16 in the District finals.
The Jr. Bills first played Ritenour last Monday in the first round of the district bracket. Ritenour had to play right before, so their low energy was advantageous for SLUH.
The St. Louis U. High varsity lacrosse team has found their stride at just the right time. Amid the start of playoffs in the aftermath of off-field affairs, the Jr. Bills were looking for a spark on the turf. By going 3-1 over the past two and a half weeks, they have found just that.
Though the SLUH varsity golf team finished third in the sectional meet, leaving them disqualified from moving onto the State Tournament as a team, three players moved onto compete in the tournament individually, each player earning a spot in the top 50.
St. Louis U. High is in playoff mode, and the tennis squad is in the thick of things. They participated in individual districts and sectionals, with strong showings in each, as every SLUH participant placed at least top three.
The games ranged from heartbreaking losses to blowouts. Ultimately, last week’s playoffs didn’t end up as hoped for St. Louis U. High’s Inline hockey program. None of the four teams advanced to the State Championship game. Only the varsity 1 team progressed past the first round. Although the results were disappointing, the club was young this year and experienced a lot of growth. Expectations and success will likely rise next spring.
