Vikings are 16-3 this season. Joey Reeves pitches a 4-hit gem over the Rams.
The Parkway North-Ladue baseball game was kind of like a 4th of July performance. While the North Vikings exploded like a bottle rocket, Ladue mostly fizzled like a cherry bomb with a bad fuse. “We really didn’t get anything going, this just wasn’t our day,” said Ladue’s coach Rob Garrett, trudging off the field after a 6-0 whitewash at the hands of the 16-3 Vikings. Ladue fell to 15-3. Sophomore lefty Joey Reeves went six innings and limited Ladue to just 4 scattered hits. The Vikings have been battled tested this year with two wins over Summit (last year’s state champs, winners over North in the title game); Parkway South, Parkway Central Troy (2 wins), Kirkwood, Hazelwood Central and Burroughs. The Vikings are really busy Coach Fred …

101 Sportsline with Brett McMillan debuts Sunday morning at 6 a.m.
After a few weeks of studying up, a Lindenwood University junior is ready to step up to the microphone this weekend. Brett McMillan, who beat out 175 competitors in a contest last month to see who would earn a one year contract to become the next host at Creve Coeur-based 101 ESPN, will hit the airwaves for the first time Sunday, starting at 6 a.m. Since he was selected, McMillan said he's been working with Program Director Chris Neupert and has sat in with hosts to try and pick up the station's culture. He singled out Fast Lane co-host Randy Karraker, a Lindenwood graduate, for his help. McMillan grew up in Ballwin and moved with his family to Portland before returning to the area and attending O'Fallon Christian High School. "I love …

Milestone reached in the last six minutes of the game with Affton Friday night.
Towards the end of the home game for Ladue with Affton Friday night, students were holding up two fingers. But they weren’t calling for the two-point shot. Rather, they were telling everyone in Nielson Gymnasium that junior point guard Cornell Johnston was a mere two points from reaching 1,000 points for a career. With a flair for the dramatic, and with two defenders draped on his shoulders, the speedy guard pulled up in the lane, fired a floater for two points, and the goal had been reached. There were just 6 minutes left in Ladue’s 80-58 route of Affton. Coach Chad Anderson called time out to recognize the milestone. The crowd loved the effort, and the big win, the 18th out of 22 this season. This is how it was done over the past three …

Caroline Stapleton gets 2 goals and the Rams improve to 8-5. Host Villa Duchense today.
Barb Dwyer is the teacher and Darby Hogan is the pupil, at least that’s how it goes in field hockey. Hogan played for Dwyer at Ladue High, and now has the reigns of the Clayton High program. Wednesday afternoon, Dwyer took student pretty much to school. Dwyer has been at coaching a long time and has an established program with which to draw talent. Hogan on the other hand is painfully creating interest one year at a time, and building a program slowly. The Greyhounds have won just 3 games this year. Ladue rolled up four first-half goals and cruised to a a clock shortened 5-0 victory over the visitors from Clayton. Ladue got its 4th and 5th goals from senior Caroline Stapleton. The first goal scored came from Courtney Emert, less than a …

Rams score early and often and win over visiting Normandy Vikings.
Give credit to the Ladue scheduler. The Rams hosted the Normandy Vikings for Home Coming and pulled off a resounding 42-14 victory. That wears a lot better than a 42-6 loss to McCluer at home just seven days ago. The Rams spread around the love. Junior quarterback Matthew Hooper threw 2 TD passes and ran for another. Marcellis Wade scored on a 2 yard run; Adehkeem Brown gathered a 30 yard pass from Hooper and the Rams had a 14 point halftime lead. In the second half, Sam Glancy caught a 30 yard TD pass from Hooper and Hooper ran one in from 15 yards out. In the fourth quarter Shawn Whitley scored on a 15 yard run and Udell Hyde closed out the scoring with a 6 yard gallop in the fourth quarter. Sophomore Jack Fox tacked on six extra points…

Colts parlay timely hitting and pitching to beat the Rams 8-2.
Wednesday was senior softball day at Ladue High. The West Campus field was festooned with balloons and signage; there were cookies to go around and plenty of photos to take. The Colts of Parkway Central crashed the Rams party. The Colts jumped on Ladue’s pitcher Natalie Grimm for four-first inning runs; banged out 12 hits and ruined the Rams day with a run-away 8-2 win. Look for more photos on the Ladue-Frontenac, Olivette, Creve Coeur, Town and Country and Chesterfield Facebook Pages. Senior lefty Jamie Lazaroff dazzled on the mound. She scattered 4 hits over 7 frames and had 6 strikeouts and for good measure went 2 for 4 at the plate for the win. Ladue used three pitches in the losing effort. The Colts rose to 5-8 while Ladue still has a…

Upper End Properties makes a special investment in the new wide receiver's playmaking ability.
Upper End Properties, a full-service real-estate company based in Clayton, is excited to join forces with St. Louis Rams Wide Receiver Mike Sims-Walker to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. With every touchdown reception by Sims-Walker during the 2011 season, Upper End will donate $1,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri. “I think Mike is going to have a big year for the Rams, so we felt that he was the perfect guy to do a promotion like this with” said Cory Spielberg, operating partner of Upper End Properties. If recent history is any barometer, Spielberg’s prediction may prove to be true. The ex-Jacksonville Jaguar has had seven receiving touchdowns in each of the last two seasons. “We all love football anyway, but …
