Ten athletes from the Creve Coeur school's senior class will play sports at the college level.
The next window to officially submit national letters of intent to play college sports is technically a few weeks away, but the Chaminade community gathered Tuesday to celebrate student-athletes in this year's senior class. A group of ten baseball, basketball, football and soccer players will compete at the next level. Among them were Jack Hummel and Andy Kleinlein, who were keys to the Red Devils' conference basketball and district championship, and a quartet of soccer players in Matt Kilwin, Jason Pesek, Curtis Shillingsford and David Stoll, who pushed the school to the state title match. The complete list is below. You can view more photos from the event in our Facebook Photo Gallery. You can also add your own photos to our story by …

Patch will share FOX Sports Midwest's live streaming coverage of De Smet Jesuit-CBC and Chaminade-Ladue.
At least one Creve Coeur-area team will still be alive in pursuit of a state boys basketball title after Friday's district finals. There could very well be two. In a pair of 7 p.m. starts, Ladue will host Chaminade for the Class 5 District 2 title, while De Smet Jesuit will meet CBC at Parkway Central for all the marbles in District 4. Ladue (21-5) will put one of the best point guards in Cornell Johnston, along with frontcourt stalwarts Andrew Maddock and Austin DaGue up against a Chaminade (17-8) club headlined by Jayson Tatum, the co-player of the year in the Metro Catholic Conference and fellow first team All MCC Andy Kleinlein in the backcourt. The Red Devils are tall up front, with Jack Hummel, Will Gladson and Tyler Cook able to …

The Red Devils tip off against Riverview Gardens tonight at 8 p.m. Patch will also have game coverage as De Smet Jesuit takes on Parkway West and CBC tangles with Parkway Central.
The Chaminade Red Devils (16-8) begin a ride into the postseason with an 8 p.m. tilt against Riverview Gardens (11-15) in the second District semifinal game played Tuesday at Ladue Horton Watkins High School. Head Coach Kelvin Lee, just named Metro Catholic Conference Coach of the Year, will see if he can take his Freshman-laden team all the way on the road to a state title in Columbia. He'll rely on a backcourt of youth and experience, featuring the first freshman to win MCC Player of the Year honors in Jayson Tatum, along with steady senior shooting guard Andy Kleinlein. Both earned First Team All MCC honors. The winner plays Friday against the winner of SLUH/Ladue. SLUH (15-2) is coached by one of Lee's former players at St. Louis …

A freshman class trio, led by Jayson Tatum, arrives to help reinvigorate the 2012-2013 squad.
When Kelvin Lee looked to his bench last season, he didn't have a lot to work with in the 2011-2012 campaign. Coming off a season where a Bradley Beal-led squad reached the state quarterfinals, the Red Devils slumped to 9-17 last season. Lee doesn't expect to have last season's trouble with depth or the team's won-loss record as play tipped off Monday. Chaminade opened on the road against Pattonville and defeated the Pirates 56-37, led by 16 points from power forward Jayson Tatum. Lee's Red Devils have reloaded in a big way, led by the Freshman Tatum, who scored an invitation to try out for one of Team USA's junior squads after an impressive summer hoops camp showing.

Spartans make it two in a row to start new calendar year, behind point guard Jimmy Barton’s game-high 20 points and 10 assists.
On a night when it seemed no one from either team could miss from long-range, the De Smet basketball team did just enough from inside the three-point arc Tuesday night, to overcome a record shooting night by visiting crosstown rival Chaminade to pull out a 64-54 win in a critical Metro Catholic Conference game. “They were struggling to get points in the paint,” De Smet head coach Kevin Poelker said. “But credit to them, they devised a way to get themselves some open looks from outside, and they didn’t miss them.” No they did not. The Red Devils hit a school-record 15 three-pointers (on 31 attempts) on Tuesday, to stay in a game that seemed destined to be a De Smet blowout from the outset. In fact, it was Spartan junior point guard Jimmy …
