Rams finish at 21-6. Shooters go cold down the stretch against the Red Devils.
This just seemed like the year the stars were all lined up right for the Ladue High basketball team. The team got hot early; took third-place in the MICDS holiday festival and shocked the daylights out of CBC, winning the Cadets own tournament with a 60-58 win over the host team. The team finally got a new hardwood floor and won all five regular home games. With a 21-5 record on the line in the district championship game, the Rams had visions of performing later in the month at Mizzou Arena. (Show Me Showdown state championships). Chaminade spoiled their travel plans. The Red Devils surged in the second half, and cruised to a 64-55 district championship Friday night in a packed Nielson Gym. The Rams pretty much lived and died by the long-…

District tournament finals on Rams home floor features two high-flying teams. Plan on arriving early.
The Class 5, District 2 championship game, Chaminade at Ladue Friday night is 24 hours away, and Rams’ coach Chad Anderson is already totally amped. He expects great things, especially when playing on their brand new home maple floor. For the first time in some 15 years, the Rams were able to host a district championship. The event has gone off flawless to date. In the semifinals, Ladue came out firing and smothered St. Louis U. High 67-51. In the other semifinal match, Chaminade evened the record with Riverview Gardens for the season 1-1 with an 82-56 whipping. Both games were played Tuesday night at Ladue. Chaminade is 17-8, and features plenty of younger players. Ladue is riding the crest of a 21-5 season. Anderson loved the play of his…

Bombers stay unbeaten by holding Red Devils to 19 points in final two quarters of 53-48 come-from-behind victory in first round of Chaminade Tournament.
CREVE COEUR -- For the first two quarters of Wednesday’s Chaminade Christmas Tournament opener between the host Red Devils and visiting John Burroughs, the visitors looked like maybe they’d eaten too much turkey and dressing during their holiday dinners the night before. The Bombers were slow on defense, late on close-outs, and flat ineffective as rebounders. But in the second half, the No. 10-ranked team among all area Small School clubs, looked like its old self again, as Burroughs turned its defense into high gear and held off the hard-charging Chaminade squad, for a hard-fought 53-48 victory. “We didn’t play well on defense at all during that first half,” Burroughs head coach Steve Wilcutt said. “They had 29 points in the first half, …

The nationally-ranked Red Devils open against Lindbergh.
The following preview of the CYC Bob Guelker Memorial Soccer Tournament was provided to Patch by Michael Faust, a junior at Chaminade who broadcasts soccer coverage on the school's CSPN online network: Starting Tuesday, the Chaminade Red Devils begin pool play in the CYC/Bob Guelker Memorial Soccer Tournament. Out of the 35 teams playing in the tourney, Lindbergh, Trinity Catholic, and Francis Howell Central are the unluckiest ones. They will have to face the #3 ranked (nationally) Red Devil squad, who opens up with pool-play at Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park against Lindbergh on Tuesday. Two more teams, assuming the Devils advance in the tournament, will be added to that list of unluckiness in the semifinals Friday, and the finals Saturday…

Junior Brandon Gutzler was 4-for-4 with four RBI to pace Spartans' biggest offensive output of the young season.
Even though the new high school baseball season is barely two weeks old, one thing is clear about the 2012 Chaminade and De Smet ballclubs -- their hitters are already in mid-season form. At least it sure seemed that way when the Red Devils and Spartans met in a Metro Catholic Conference game at De Smet Wednesday afternoon. The two clubs combined for 23 hits, including nearly a dozen extra-base hits, in an old-fashioned MCC slugfest, which the home team Spartans eventually claimed by the final score of 8-5. "We put the ball in play today, and we moved guys around," De Smet Head Coach Greg Vitello said. "But that doesn't always happen. I kind of thought our base-running kind of got us going a little bit today." De Smet was aggressive in …

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 …

6’8 Nolan Berry had 25 points and 10 rebounds, and 6’11 Eric Moeller had 21 points to lead Spartans to 79-70 win over Red Devils.
When local basketball preseason prognosticators voted De Smet the No. 1 team in the area before the start of the season, they likely had visions of the Spartans’ massive frontline of 6’8 Nolan Berry, 6’11 Eric Moeller, and 6’6 Alec Bausch wreaking havoc on opposing defenses all season long running through their heads. After two early losses though, De Smet isn’t the top-ranked team in the area anymore, but on Thursday night, the Spartans’ big boy lineup did dominate the action against rival Chaminade, in what proved to be an impressive 79-70 victory over the Red Devils. “I thought there were definitely moments where we played our game,” De Smet head coach Kevin Poelker said. “To their credit, they did some really tough things defensively …

Only five Chainade grapplers took part in Saturday action in Creve Coeur.
CHAMINADE HIGH SCHOOL – If the Chaminade varsity wrestling team had a full unit available to participate in the highly-anticipated Red Devil Duals team meet at the Juergens Gymnasium on Saturday, chances are it would’ve been a wonderful day for the Red Devil program. Instead, the shorthanded Chaminade squad, which didn’t have enough wrestlers available to legitimately compete against the other seven teams on Saturday, finished last in the team standings, despite a good effort by the five Red Devil wrestlers who did compete. “Individually, for the guys at the first-string level, they do very well,” said Chaminade assistant wrestling coach Chris Marsek, who was running the show for the Red Devils on Saturday, because head coach Jeff Grace …

Boys and girls hoops seasons get underway for most teams beginning on Monday, while the high school hockey season has been going since early November.
With the football and soccer state championships finally bringing the fall sports season to a conclusion, a full schedule of high school hoops on Monday marks the official start of the winter sports season in Creve Coeur. Last year, superstar basketball player Bradley Beal and the No. 1-ranked Chaminade Red Devils were the story to follow on the local sports scene. This season, we’ve got a list of five storylines we think Patch readers will want to follow all season long. (And we encourage our readers to please let us know, if you know of a better Creve Coeur sports story we somehow missed.) Here’s our list of five stories to follow in Creve Coeur this winter: #1 – What happens with Chaminade, now that Brad Beal is at Florida? The Devils …
