Rams role to 18th win of the season with 80-58 pounding of the Cougars.
The crazed Ladue student cheering section knew “it” was coming. They counted “it” down like the launch of a space ship at the Cape in Florida. The “it” was junior point guard Cornell Johnson getting his 1,000 point in a Rams basketball suit. The “it” came with 6:00 left in the game when Johnson drove the middle and tossed in a little floater from 15 feet out. The crowd roared with approval. Coach Chad Anderson called time out and hugged his top scoring performer. But Johnston and Anderson will be glad to tell you Ladue basketball is a team game. “We were glad to get this over. We’re really happy he could get that 1,000th point at home,” said his coach. Actually, Ladue has had 5 or 6 players reached that hallowed 1,000 career point mark. …

Rams get revenge for a 3-0 loss one year ago.
What a difference a year makes. Last year, the Affton girls soccer team got three goals from their top player Haley Stewart and trampled Ladue, 3-0. Twelve months later, the Rams took the Cougars to overtime at their new digs at the West Ladue campus and won 3-2. It was a thrilling come-from-behind performance. Jody Peterson, their senior captain could not play because of doctors’ orders from a mild concussion, so she cheered her teammates constantly from the side lines. Be sure to follow Ladue sports on the Ladue-Frontenac Patch Facebook page. The Mizzou-bound mid fielder told her teammates to believe in themselves. She kept saying it was Ladue’s day to win. Senior midfielder Abbey Walter could not be in more agreement. She found the back…

The Rams have five players score in double figures in a 78-56 victory at home Friday night.
Ladue guard Ryan Daniels found himself seated next to head coach Chad Anderson less than a minute into the Rams' Suburban East Conference game against Affton Friday night. The senior was back on the court a minute later and he and the Rams put on quite a show the rest of the way, defeating the Cougars 78-56 at home. "I was real disappointed and frustrated when I came out so soon," Daniels said. "But it was because I didn't run the play and tried to do my own thing." The Rams played very unselfishly the rest of the way, finishing with five players in double figures. "We've got to play team ball to be successful and I thought we did a good job of that tonight," Anderson said. "I feel we have a good shot at competing and winning the …

Taylor Robinson dominates the inside game with 26 points.
If you look in the box-score, you’d see that Ladue won over Affton in the first round of the Hancock girls holiday tournament 47-39. But, it was much, much closer than that. With 5:07 left in the game, the Lady Cougars held a momentary 32-31 lead, hacking away at an earlier 10-point deficit. Ladue’s coach Cord Dockery was not pleased. He held a fairly lengthy team meeting at the conclusion of the match in the Tiger Dome at Hancock. This is a tournament that last year saw the Rams run off three wins and head into January undefeated. A year ago, the Lady Rams ran off the first 20 wins of the season before falling to Whitfield. The hill is a steeper climb this year. Lauren Maclin is playing ball at Forest Park Community College and 6-foot-3 …

Rams rack up big homecoming victory. Next is Duchesne Thursday night.
Before the homecoming dance begins and all the hoopla, the football team needs to take care of its business. Deavin Edwards galloped for TD runs of 39 twice and five yards and Ladue smothered 0-5 Affton, 48-0 for a homecoming victory. Edwards has 10 TDs the past three weeks. Ladue is 4-2, notching four conference victories in a row. It wasn't pretty or artistic. "We got off to a slow start and made lots of mistakes in the first half," said coach Mike Tarpey. "We have to start out better next week," he said. The Rams have a precious three days to get ready for a Thursday night district opener at St. Charles Duchesne Thursday. "It is important that our kids be focused and ready for Duchesne," said Tarpey. The numbers don't lie. Edwards …

Affton, 0-5 Is the perfect guest for homecoming at Ladue. MICDS entertains Priory, Burroughs hosts Ste. Genevieve.
The local football teams and their guests this weekend are headed in opposite directions. The Ladue Rams, winners of three straight, with a mark of 3-2 host 0-5 Affton for homecoming Saturday. The party should be on for the 1 p.m. game. By the time the homecoming court is introduced, the Rams hope to have everything under control. The Rams ran off 44 unanswered points, ripping Normandy on the road last Saturday, 52-7. One of the top rushers in the area, 188 pound senior Deavin Edwards is the Rams go to ball carrier. Edwards has lugged the leather for 792 yards and 10 TDs. He's averaging 9.4 yards per carry. A man of few words, he's a work horse in Mike Tarpey's offense. Senior QB Brandon Carr is a 51 percent passer with 845 yards and 7 TDs…
