Rams have one of the perennial power house programs in the Mid West
Andy Kay, teacher and former dean at MICDS has brought a passion for the game of Lacrosse to the Rams program. He works extra hard to gain exposure for his talented athletes.

The sport is growing like flowers in the springtime.
I have a confession to make. I must admit, as of late, I’m hooked on the sport of lacrosse-hook line and sinker. Just the other night I was watching the Northwestern Women beating Syracuse on ESPNU for the national title. I was channel surfing the next day for the men’s title game, Loyola of Baltimore and Maryland. Until this spring, I had seen little of local lacrosse. I find the game to be fast paced, action-packed and just down right interesting. However, the strategies and approach to the game between boys and girls lacrosse is quite different. The girls play more of a strategic, skills-oriented game. The boys, well we might say they like to knock down the house, and everything in its path. That’s why there are equipment differences I …

By Ross Woolsey, Special to the Ladue-Frontenac Patch Back on March 16, St. Louis University High and MICDS battled through three overtimes before the Rams finally prevailed. Neither team lost another game to an in-state opponent until they met again on Saturday in the Missouri State Lacrosse finals at Lindenwood University. This time SLUH was the one-goal victor in a back and forth game, 7-6, winning their second state championship, their first since 2009. SLUH jumped off to a two goal advantage early in the game on goals by Thomas Place and Daniel Tiapek. The normally explosive MICDS transition game started off slowly, as the Rams appeared sluggish in the on-field 106º heat. With just 48 seconds left in the first quarter a Jack Howell …

Goal is to promote lacrosse locally and select a premier team to represent the region.
On any given Sunday, fans will find some 1,400 youngsters playing lacrosse at SportPort in the River Port area of far west St. Louis County. This is a sport that has enjoyed phenomenal growth from both girls and boys. The sport, started by Indians played primarily with a stick and ball was imported from eastern U.S.schools in the early 1970s. MICDS was the local initiator of this fast-growing sport. Andy Kay, English teacher and dean of seventh grade at MICDS, and Chris Mower, former MICDS grad and parent, are reaching out to take this to the next level. Kay, formerly of Washington D.C., has organized a couple of major events to make this sport explode locally. On Dec. 10 and 11, he has rounded up coaches primarily from eastern …
