Current improves to 14-2. Bombers absorb first loss of the season.
Earlier this week, Burroughs' 16 points per game senior scorer Foye Oluokun has arthroscopic knee surgery and was sidelined for the showdown game with high-flying Crossroads (14-2). But, excuses are never in order. Teams play with the hand delt them. Oluokun, decked in blue sweat suit got on the court only long enough to wipe perspiration from the floor. The Crossroads Current rode some torrid perimeter shooting to end Burroughs win streak at home Friday night, 63-57. That was despite the heroic effort of mighty Ezekiel Elliott who drove the lane constantly for 23 points, 20 coming in the second half. But the Clay brothers of Crossroads lit up the second board. Junior Trevor Clay had 22 points; his brother Kameron, a sophomore had 17. …

Decked out in pink uni's, the Lady Rams toast rival Burroughs to the tune of 70-21.
The MICDS girls basketball team was excited to wear their new pink uniforms. They were excited to play rival John Burroughs and they were excited to perform in front of the largest crowd of the year. If anything, the young Rams were just eager to take the floor and start scoring. They scored the first 10 points on Pink Out night at home, and coasted to an easy 70-21 win over the Bombers, their 13th win in 14 tries. How far can they go this year. How high can they climb. Can they beat Incarnate Word Academy who dropped down to their class and has been crushing everyone by wide margins. Junior Caroline Militello, who popped in 14 points said “We sure hope so.” But that situation is for much later down the line. Taking care of business, the …

MICDS girls cruise to 68-21 victory over Bombers; and boys slip by the Rams, 40-38, preserving a 13-0 season.
A heavy weight prize fight was held at the McDonnell gym on the campus of MICDS last night. In the annual tribute to Cancer awareness “Pink Out Night,” the pugalists, the Bombers of Burroughs and Rams of MICDS came away with a split decision. Everyone of the 1,500 or so who packed the gym in a playoff-type atmosphere left getting their money’s worth (though no admission is charged at MICDS.) The boy Bombers ran the season’s record to perfect 13-0 behind the heft of their heavy-weight football players just eking out a come-from-behind 40-38 victory. Football sensations Zeke Elliott and Foye Oluokun led the way with 11 apiece. Trey Pettus had 13 points; William Morehead 12 in a losing cause. Elliott had to cut short a desperation attempt by…

Zeke Elliott notches 3 more TDs; Peter Schnuck catches 2 TDs and adds an interception.
If they were to pass around game balls following the John Burroughs 56-0 demolition of Clayton Saturday, they’d have to have a lot of them. Many Bombers players on both offense and defense were worthy of recognition. Zeke Elliott scored 3 more TDs, adding to his gaudy total of 28 for the year. That’s 70 TDs the past two seasons for this senior star. Peter Schnuck caught 2 touchdown passes and had an interception. Linebackers Christian Bledsoe and Xavier Bledsoe and Solo Ceesay chased Greyhound QB Jake Brown all over the field. They didn’t yield a point in 4 quarters. Rushil Sheth was perfect on all of his 8 point after kicks. Be our friend on the Ladue-Frontenace Facebook page. But no resting on any laurels for this 7-0 team. They travel …

This could prove to be the best Bombers swim team in a lengthy history. Bombers splash past rivals MICDS 103-71.
One of the John Burroughs swim parents has been running all the numbers while pouring over spreadsheets lately. By his calculation of comparison times, the Bombers’ swim team ought to finish somewhere from 5th to 8th place in the state swim championships in November. Now those are lofty goals. The field is comprised of loaded talent from powerhouse swim programs at Lafayette, Parkway Central, SLUH, Rockhurst, Blue Springs and others. No worries for the Bombers. They knocked off bigger Chaminade this week and followed up with a 103-73 win over rival MICDS late Friday. The Bombers are unblemished at 8-0-1 in duels this year. The pride of JBS are junior Kevin Steinhouse (Patch’s Week 7 MVP) and his sidekick and good friend senior Adam …

Community run winds through the streets of Ladue from Burroughs to MICDS this morning.
FOURTH UPDATE: Saturday, 10:00 a.m. Hundreds of runners were off at 8 a.m. John Burroughs to MICDS. Burroughs' Margaret Bahe just added several great photos of the start of the race. Dave Nowak of MICDS completed the race coverage with photos of the winners. MICDS faculty member Paul Reineke was first to cross the finish line of the 2.5 miles race, followed closely by Dan Moisio, MICDS class of 2003. Some 237 runners took advantage of perfect fall weather to run down Price Road, up Ladue Road and then finish on Warson Road at the entrance of MICDS. The Birchfield Family (Blake and Kathy Birchfield of Ladue and their five children) won the "most spirited" award - seven family members participated and all crossed the finish line. They …
Young Bombers tested the Saints in spurts during the match.
Villa’s volleyball coach Shane Weber is showing his team the beef. He purposely gave the Saints a rugged schedule this year to prep for a difficult playoff season. One year ago, the Saints celebrated their first state Class 3 volleyball title at the Show Me Center on the campus of Southeast Missouri State over Thanksgiving. There’s no resting on their laurels for this team. See more pictures on the Ladue-Frontenac Facebook Page. The Saints made fairly quick work of host John Burroughs Thursday night, sending the Bombers out the door to do home work, 25-14 and 25-13. For the record, Casie Tomlinson’s youngish Bombers put up a spirited opposition. More on that later. But that front line, comprised of Meghan Donovan, Marisa Drevenak, Maggie …

Burroughs is 4-0 coming into the game; MICDS is struggling at 1-3.
Want to wave a red flag in front of the Burroughs Bombers. Just print it with last year’s football score against MICDS: “45-20.” The Bombers need no further motivation. But last year’s MICDS star power has pretty much scattered. Michael Scherer is at Mizzou; Thomas Miltello at Dartmouth and Jack Howell at Brown. On the flip side, Burroughs is giddy over the prospects of Ezekiel Elliott shredding the Rams defense Saturday, kickoff 2 p.m. on the Rams home turf. Coach Gus Frerotte knows better. He has his Bombers looking at this game with the greatest of caution. He knows so much is riding on this bitter rivalry. Burroughs is 4-0; having steam rolled Cape Girardeau Central, Lutheran South, Priory and Lutheran North. MICDS has struggled out …
