SLUH battles Vianney in Paint-it-Pink matchup, over $2,000 raised as stout defense and energetic atmosphere keep Jr. Bills undefeated
  • Sports

t’s not often that fourth quarter school events can distract students from the rapid, determined march towards summer vacation. Projects, tests, and AP exams all fly by as the weather gets warmer. Some things can break the mold and bring students back into the moment, though. A packed house of pink shirts in the Danis Field House ready to celebrate SLUH volleyball did just that last Wednesday. In their closest, most important match of the season, the Paint-it-Pink game, SLUH beat Vianney in straight sets. Played in support of Breast Cancer awareness, the match was high energy, intense, and victorious, just like the rest of the volleyball season so far.

Water polo continues dynamite season with multiple strong wins
  • Sports

The Jr. Bills faced off against the Kirkwood Pioneers last week. This wasn’t an ordinary matchup, the Bills wouldn’t be able to make them “feel despair” (the goal of each game).
