The Bills are Rollin’: Basketball secures first away win against Red Devils since 2012
Daniel Tice and Zach Ortwerth, Core Staff, reporter

Chaminade forgot about SLUH. They forgot to give the student section a place to sit as 70-plus SLUH students were forced to stand clumped together in the corner of the gym. They forgot that even without Nick Kramer, this Jr. Bills team has more talent than ever before. But most importantly, they forgot that the Saint Louis U. High basketball team has all the momentum in the world and look like they cannot be stopped. SLUH (12-6) upset the MCC favorites Chaminade (14-6) 72-69 last Friday during their McBride night.

Polish students arrive to SLUH host families, take on service projects in St. Louis

While St. Louis U. High seniors ventured across the world in January for their Senior Projects, a group of Polish students came to St. Louis to do their own service projects. In this first-of-its-kind exchange, the high school students have been staying with SLUH host families, serving the local community at numerous St. Louis organizations, and acquainting themselves with St. Louis culture and history through excursions with SLUH Global Ed and their host families.

A Fond Farewell: Past and present editors recall memories from old PN office
The PN 87 Editorial Board and PN Editor Emeritus Association

This week marks the first issue of the Prep News to be produced in the brand-new Claude Heithaus, SJ Media Center. With this move comes overwhelming sadness, as it means that J220—home to the paper’s office for over two decades—is rendered vacant. The PN moved to the J-wing some time in the late 1990s, and countless memories were forged in the space, which we hope to suggest below, as current and former editors reflect on some of their most notable moments in the PN room.

To many at St. Louis U. High, the Prep News room is one which is seldom visited, if ever at all. It sits on the second floor of the J Wing, an area typically reserved only for art students, lost freshmen, or recipients of an official SLUH tour. For the 20 or so staffers of the paper at any given time, though, it was an effective second home, serving equally important duties of home to production nights and go-to AP/free period hangout spot. It can be said with utmost certainty that the PN room was unlike any other on campus. Its walls were adorned with two decades’ worth of memes, inside jokes, funny posters, and a parade of Indiana University certificates, which were always certain to spark questioning from any first-time visitor. Complete with three couches, a conference table, and several slow-though-functioning Mac desktops, there was no better place to do (or more likely, procrastinate) homework.
