GRR: St. Louis University High
St. Louis University High held an all-Catholic-School tournament this past weekend and the Kansas City area did fairly well, with St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Martin's Kingfishers both winning all of their games.
Since Aquinas and Kingfishers are slated to play each other soon, they didn't play each other in the tournament, so both came out undefeated.
St. Louis University High is hosting a All-Catholic-School tournament this weekend, bringing in several ranked teams to St. Louis.
St. Thomas Aquinas, ranked #6 among school teams at the moment, headlines a group that includes SLUH (ranked until recently), #44 Father Ryan, #48 St. Martin (Kingfishers), #37 Notre Dame de la Salette, and an up-and-coming Chaminade.
In a battle of leading school teams in the Missouri/Kansas region, St. Thomas Aquinas held off St. Louis University High 39-35 in a wild one.
The Notre Dame de La Salette Lions kicked off their season with a weekend matchup against the Baby Billikens of St. Louis University High this past weekend, coming away with two victories.
The La Salette 2nds defeated SLUH 81-0 in the opener. fullback, Ian Somdahl opened the scoring, and Nicholas Babic, Daniel Prather, and captain Benedict Pietras set the tone up front.
The St. Louis Ruggerfest is the home tournament for St. Louis University High, but they have never won it - until now.
SLUH was in top form as they beat Germantown 26-0, the Chiefs out of Illinois 15-7, and, in the final, the Little Rock Jr. Stormers 26-19.
It was a pretty good weekend for Little Rock, too, as the Stormers beat Bixby 26-12 in the semis.
