Junior Cameron Schlegel


The baseball team won their first game of the regular season last Thursday beating Parkway Central 12-9. Crawford Hall started out the game pitching for the cats and pitched four innings. Junior, Mason Fricke,  and sophomores, Cal Leighton, and Jake Keane each pitched an inning after that to secure the win for the cats.  Junior, Cameron Schlegl also stepped up to get the cat’s going. He went 3 for 4 with 4 RBIs. The team was thrilled to get a win and is looking to turn the corner after a tough start to the season.



Girls lacrosse won their first game 5-4 over Kirkwood with a lot of support from underclassmen. Sophomore, Cadence Jefferson scored two goals and sophomore, Lochlan McGowan added one to the teams total. Brooke Brasfield and Natalie Bradshaw contributed to the team playing strong defense throughout the game. Senoir, Anna Niekamp recorded a hat trick Wednesday in a tough 10-12 loss to Visitation, and Molly Kate Bugh and Kennedy McGowan each scored 2. The young team is looking strong to start the season and is looking forward to playing some tough competition throughout the season.



The girls soccer team started off hot going 2-0 at their home opener. Their first game was an easy 4-1 win of Francis Howell North. In their second game they played MICDS in a high tension game after MICDS beat them in the district championship last year. The Cats had a 1-0 lead for most of the game, but MICDS was able to tie it in the second half. The game extended to overtime where senior Ashlyn Lane netted the game winner for the cats. Ashlyn was coming off an ACL tear, and you could tell she was eager to get back on the field. She scored 2 goals in her first two games back and she is going to be a key player for the team this season. The Cats were very excited to get some revenge on MICDS and can’t wait to see where this season takes them. “It’s really exciting and motivating to start off this season strong, and with this win on our back it is definitely going to help our momentum as we start to face harder teams as the season progresses” said Lauren Sowers, senior.



Boys tennis beat MICDS for the first time in years to bring their record to 2-0. Number 1 doubles Tyler Collison and Alan Walker won in a tie breaker. Their match was a battle from the start, but in the end they beat the dynamic MICDS team. Number 3 doubles had an amazing comeback. Drew Cahill and Owen Legters were down 2-6. MICDS was two games away from taking the match, but the Westminster pair gained some momentum and ended up winning 9-7. With a singles win from Calvin VanHeest it was up to Mason Wittock to clinch the win for the Cats. He showed up in a big way with an 8-6 victory. The tennis team is looking very strong and is working to keep up their success as the season progresses.



Boy’s volleyball won their first game against Parkway North in five sets. The team is very young this year, and sophomore Benji Mitchell is a dominant hitter that helped lead the team to the win. He will continue to be a strong part of the team’s offense. Sam Avazado served 8 in a row in the fifth set to help claim the win. Boys volleyball is another young team with a lot of potential this season.
