Jasiek scatters four Priory hits and Wood scores all three runs in a Burroughs 3-0 victory.
The Burroughs baseball team was definitely playing a man short during their four game swing through Florida in March. Junior lefty hurler Alex Jasiek was off playing hockey with his AAA Midget team in Pittsburgh. Jasiek has designs on playing hockey collegiately. Right now, coach Andy Katzman is thrilled to be able to pencil him into the lineup. Jasiek, who fired a no-hitter in the playoffs against Clayton last year mastered Priory on Tuesday, winning 3-0. He scattered four hits over six frames. Then Peter Schnuck , the third baseman stepped in and mopped up the seventh. “We’ve seen him before. He’s a really good one,” said Priory’s coach Gregg Muensch. “He throws well and he throws strikes, and we got hurt by a couple of walks,” said the …

Thursday, hear from the players, coaches how they smothered the Rebels.
Junior leftie Alex Jasiek can be rough and tumble on a ice hockey surface, and smooth as silk on a pitching mound. Jasiek scattered 4 hits over 6 frames, and Jake Wood scored 3 times as Burroughs beat visiting Priory Tuesday, 3-0 in a conference game. Coach Andy Katzman is relieved to have Jasieck in uniform.

Thursday, Jasiek talks about what was working for him and catcher Justin Moon talks about how much he enjoyed catching this game. Also hear from coaches Katzman and Priory's Gregg Muensch.

MICDS hosts Lutheran South while Ladue Goes to McCluer South-Berkeley.
Secretly, John Burroughs football team would probably like a tougher test than they’ve had so far this season. They have steam rolled Cape Girardeau Central 43-14 and whitewashed Lutheran South, 35-0 in a game shortened by the storm last Friday. (2-0) Burroughs vs Priory (1-1), home Friday, 4:30 p.m. Running back Ezekiel Elliott (8 touchdowns in two games) needs a true test. Priory could offer just that. The Rebels got wacked by Alton Marquette 55-31 but beat up on Lutheran North 51-7. The Rebels have some seasoned veterans. Like Thomas Rybuck, a hard-charging runner who has 5 TDs in two games. Quarterback David Nogalski is 21 of 29 passing for 294 yards. Priory return specialist John Agnew has 156 yards of real estate so far. Burroughs …

Hefler puts down an uprising, and Bombers crush Priory, 8-0.
No disputing the fact, sophomore Alex Jasiek was in command of all his pitches and mowed down seven batters en-route to an 8-0 victory for Burroughs over Priory Wednesday. But the play at the plate in the second inning by Bombers catcher senior Sam Hefler was worth the price of admission. Junior David Nogalski was barreling home for the go-head score in the second inning when he ran into Hefler, literally. Nogalski, who doubles as a running back in football went airborne on the Burroughs catcher. Hefler applied the perfect tag and ended the Rebels uprising. The Bombers parlayed three runs in the fourth; two in the fifth and sixth and won their sixth game of the season. “I like plays like that. I like the contact. It reminded me of the …
