The St. Louis U. High football team brought home its first win of the season last Friday, defeating Vianney 20-3. During the first half, the team was not able to gain much momentum, but the team came out of halftime and dominated, scoring three touchdowns in the second half.
Senior Project: a 50-year-old St. Louis U. High tradition, a tradition that many seniors savor as they leave the halls of SLUH, a tradition that many remember for years after they depart, another tradition threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
While socially distancing, teenagers have had a hard time interacting and having fun in a safe, smart, and engaging manner. But like most developments that have come out of this pandemic, interaction has gone virtual, as the most popular social trend that has taken young adults by storm is the mobile game Among Us.
Newly-ordained Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski visited SLUH on Oct. 19, part of his mission to visit every institution that he presides over in an effort to get more familiar with the St. Louis community.

The past two weeks for the St. Louis U. High soccer team were anything but ideal. Entering into a stretch of 6 games with a 4-0 record, the SoccerBills looked to continue their run of dominance. However a string of tough opponents on the road including Chaminade, St. Dominic, and De Smet quickly ended the Jr. Bills unbeaten season. Their first test on the road was MCC rival, Chaminade.
About three years ago, I was hunkered down in the Math Office late one evening, around midnight (why I was there that late is not important). Nobody else had been in the school building for hours. Just me and the occasional spider that crept across the wall. Or so I believed. I was sitting at my old desk, where Mr. Hinders currently resides. It faces the west wall of the office, my back was turned to the big glass window of the Math office that showcases the middle hallway.
The pandemic has prevented a lot of things, but it did not kill global education. With no immersion trips or exchange programs, Director of Global Education Rob Chura and the Foreign Language Department has worked diligently to help students escape their cultural bubble this semester, embracing Zoom and other internet tools to provide safe, online cross-cultural experiences.
As of Oct. 23, Steve Walters will be the new interim-head coach for the varsity ice hockey team. Walters has been an assistant coach for the program since 2017, and didn’t expect the coaching change.
I have been a member of St. Louis U. High’s delegation for the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice conference since freshman year. It was one of the first events that I participated in as a freshman at SLUH, and it continues to be a highlight for me each year. I have been involved in the Teach-In for even longer, though, helping my dad, a professor at Saint Louis University, work with college students to prepare for it.
Every year Saint Louis U. High students compete in the Catholic Interscholastic Speech League meet along with students from other Catholic schools. Students can compete in a variety of categories including poetry, radio broadcasting, extemporaneous speech, and are scored by judges. As reigning champs, SLUH had high hopes going into this year's competition.
Following reports that Assistant Dean of Students Dan Schulte was stuffing candy full of JUGs and demerits, the school issued a warning letter on Tuesday, Oct. 9 to parents of Jr. Bills, telling them to check their sons’ Halloween treats before consumption.
