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 …

Bombers continue to dominate area schools enroute to MICDS showdown Saturday.
So how do you slow down Ezekiel Elliott on a football field? Maybe tell him he cannot play in the game. Or assign about six or seven tacklers. Or just give up. Elliott has dominated the turf of the John Burroughs football field in a 4-0 season. Coach Gus Frerotte, his favorite fan couldn’t be happier. Elliott rushed for TDs of 62, 29, 7, and 76 and returned a 56 yard punt as the Bombers prepped for their showdown with MICDS running all over hapless Lutheran North 56-14. It was 49-0 at half and the game ended with a running clock. Also, Andrew Barnett hauled in a 14 yard strike from quarterback Nick Duncan and Foye Oluokun, the area’s premier returned a kick off 76 yards and reserve back Gregg Booker scored on a 55 yard run. Justin Baker …
