  • News
Jack Figge and Thomas Juergens, Editor in Chief, reporter

Prospective students at St. Louis U. High’s Open House event last Sunday were greeted not by a looming Mr. Schulte as they walked up the turnaround, but by a six and a half foot camel. The camel, along with the more traditional SLUH tour features helped give prospective students and parents a great impression of SLUH

Swim gears up for state with sights set on claiming third team title in four years
  • Sports

The time has come. Today, the Jr. Bills will be immersed in a great war of the waters; a bout that decides the fate of the state. After asserting their district dominance last week they now seek to snag a state title. Today the swimmers are competing in the prelims portion of the meet, in which they fight to qualify for tomorrow’s finals, which will take place at 3:00 p.m. in the St. Peters Rec-Plex. Understandably, hopes are high going into the meet.

XC races to fourth at state with three All-State runners, trophy streak now sits at four years
  • Sports

The SLUH Jr. Billikens went up against the toughest teams in the state last Friday at the Gans Creek State course in Columbia, and the fastest times that the course has ever seen to bring home a fourth-place trophy, adding to their four-year podium streak. Finishing just five points behind third-place Liberty North, the Bills finished the season with a strong closing race to cap off a great year. By putting three racers in the top 25, each earning All-State designations, SLUH tied its record for most All-State runners at a State meet, proving the immense competition Missouri running has produced this year.

Week 9 Fantasy Football Recap
  • Entertainment

Another wacky week of football fell upon us in Week 9. With lots of upsets such as the Jaguars over the Bills, or the Broncos over the Cowboys, this week was far from ordinary. The same can be said on the fantasy side of football as there were very few fantasy fireworks from the core fantasy players. In one of my personal 12-man leagues, the league-high was 127 points and the second-highest scorer was 116. Despite this low-scoring week of football,  let’s take a look at the fantasy players that lit up the scoreboard.

Satire: Camel chaos causes confusion on campus
  • Entertainment

St. Louis U. High’s Open House Sunday ended in frenzied terror after a camel burst free from its restraints. The camel forced a mad dash down the turnaround as students attempted to escape the imminent dromedarian threat. 

Students find joy in playing popular video game Retro Bowl
  • Features

The last four years have seen the rise of many fads, such as Ugg boots, Flappy Golf, and the emergence of TikTok. Most recently, there has been a new game going around the hallways of St. Louis U. High that everyone is playing (outside of school hours of course). Currently the sixth most popular free game on the AppStore, everyone is playing RetroBowl, and for good reason.

Farmyard to Schoolyard: How two teachers grew up in rural America
  • Features

When students at St. Louis U. High think of their teachers’ upbringings, they may tend to imagine reading, studying, and working, not milking cows, chopping wood, and canning vegetables. Two faculty members at SLUH today were not always connoisseurs of the academic subjects; instead, they grew up on rural family farms.
