Freshmen on both sides put on a strong showing on the Rams home floor.
The modest crowd that came out to see the MICDS and Notre Dame girls basketball game Monday night got a glimpse of the future of local stars. Freshman Madeline Ronshausen scored 19 for the Notre Dame Rebels; Taylor Baur, also a freshman had 11 for the Rams. Good thing there’s two halves to a game. The Rams outscored the visitors 41-13 in the second half and cruised to a 73-40 victory. That pushed the Rams record to 18-2. Notre Dame, which trailed by 5 at halftime, 32-27 fell to 7-13. “We just wore them down in the second half,” said the winning coach Scott Small. “They are a good basketball team.

Our student reviewer from MICDS says Notre Dame's production was a night of suspense and hilarity for the audience.
Friday, November 16, 2012
By Ellen Wright of Mary Institute St. Louis Country Day School The alleged murder of Dr. Watson by Sherlock Holmes, a pair of hopeless would-be inspectors hoping to solve the case, a stolen priceless jewel, a few fake identities and kidnappings and constant twists and surprises (with a crass gypsy thrown into the mix) led to a night of suspense and hilarity for the viewers of Notre Dame’s "Murder at 221B." The director's search for a play led to the discovery that Mike Flood, the technical adviser, had written a hilarious Sherlock Holmes spin-off titled "Murder at 221B," which she knew was perfect. The play is divided into three acts with one intermission, and is set in 1899 at Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson’s apartment in London. The two …

De Smet junior standout gives verbal pledge to the school which has played in the last two NCAA Basketball Championship games.
Nolan Berry won't graduate from De Smet until the spring of 2013, but the Spartan standout forward knows where he wants to be in the fall of the same year.
