The Vikings went on a wild ride in search of the school's first state baseball championship.
2012 was a busy year in sports for Creve Coeur. It saw prep athletes like Durron Neal, Brandon Sheperd, Donavin Newsom and DJ Johnson sign on the dotted line to play football or basketball at the next level for major Division I programs. It saw a Creve Coeur alum, Chaminade's Bradley Beal drafted third overall by the NBA's Washington Wizards. Andy Bauer, then only a sophomore, made headlines when he made a verbal pledge to play football at Missouri. He's since re-opened his recruitment and is still being sought out by some of the top schools in the country. At the team level, Whitfield Hockey won a crown, Parkway North basketball won the school's first ever district championship, and a powerhouse Chaminade Soccer team made it to the state …

Parkway North's daring playbook and valiant defense not enough to defeat the Statesmen behind a career night by Marlon Peal.
Webster Groves used a career night from running back Marlon Peal Friday, as the Statesmen went on the road to defeat Parkway North 28-14 in the last game of the regular season. Peal, a senior, had touchdown runs of 20, 68 and 78 yards en route to a 24 carry-336 yard night. And yet, with all that, the game itself was still largely in doubt until the last 2 minutes. Check out our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game North's opening drive included a successful fake punt and a 4th down coversion at the Webster Groves 30 yard line but the Vikings could not turn that into points against the 5th ranked team in Class 5. When a pooch punt turned into a touchback, Peal flipped the field with a 64 yard scamper that led to Bri'on Sanders' 24 yard …

The Colts remain undefeated heading into next weekend's matchup with University City.
In a matchup that carried plenty of upset potential for Parkway Central after last week's win over Webster Groves, the Colts continued a season-long theme focused on using the team's multi-faceted rushing attack and a stingy defense to go on the road and shut out Parkway North 23-0 Friday. "We had a very emotional win last week and I just worried about our intensity and our fire and I challenged our kids and I feel like they lived up to the challenge," Central Head Coach Mark Goldenberg said. Check out our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game After the the teams traded punts for most of the first quarter, a Parkway Central 82 yard drive exclusively on the ground except for a pass play from Zach Lazenby to Jake Bushman ended with a Lazenby …

Ground game eats up plenty of yardage, but it is what the Vikings didn't drink that had their head coach concerned Friday.
Chief among Parkway North Head Football Coach Bob Bunton's keys going into Friday's road clash with St. Louis University High School's Jr. Bills was something that didn't involve the traditional x's and o's. He wanted his players to beat the heat, which meant drinking fluids. Temperatures were a far cry from their high points of recent weeks, but as is often the case in the opening weeks of the season, dehydration reared its ugly head early and often on Oakland Avenue, contributing in part to a 7-6 loss. View our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game The Vikings controlled much of the first half with a ground game by committee, wth contributions from Roderick Hoskins, Johnathan Little, Jalen Dillard and Roosevelt Abram. Hoskins' 1 yard …

The team must replace several players now dotting college football rosters.
Parkway North Head Football Coach Bob Bunton enters his 31st season at the helm knowing he'll need to rely in part on members of another team he coaches at the school if the Vikings are going to build on their 5-5 record in 2011. That's right, the Parkway North baseball team, which went to the state championship game this past spring. First baseman Andy Huss returns at Quarterback for the football Vikings in his senior season, his second as a starter. He may one of the most visible returning offensive players for North, which saw RB/LB Donavin Newsom and RB/DB Jovonte Suber graduate to NCAA programs at Missouri and St. Cloud State. Bunton said an offensive line that had growing pains last season could be a strength in 2012. "You have to …
