Roarke Unrau and Mark Wappler, News Editor, Core Staff

Lactose-free? No siree! On their last day at the U. High, the Class of 2022 woke up very early Friday morning and partied from the break of dawn. Their drink of choice to fuel their energy on the last day? Milk. And lots of it. Despite a rainy start to their morning and other obstacles during the rest of their day, the seniors made the best of every moment together and made memories that they, along with the rest of the school, will remember forever.

Letter to the Editor: Faith in College
  • Opinion

I’m sure every senior has heard that college is a period of excitement, freedom, and learning. In such an exciting time, I would encourage any freshman in college to not be shy in meeting new people and taking new classes. However, above all, the best advice I can give to any incoming college student is take ownership of your faith.

Lacrosse dominates O'Fallon in offensive showcase as team honors seniors
  • Sports

After an exhilarating double overtime victory last week versus Eureka, all eyes shifted to the 12 seniors celebrating Senior Night. SLUH matched up against one of their easiest opponents all year in the O’Fallon Panthers. O’Fallon has had a rough year, sitting at 4-11 before heading to Sheridan Stadium, a season that culminated in a 20-0 loss vs. Chaminade. All signs pointed for SLUH to do the same if they could execute as well as they knew they could. This included the return of junior goalie Will Barnidge, who was sidelined in the game against Eureka thanks to an injury. 

Golf clobbers De Smet to defend J Cup, Cornett earns ticket to state amidst team struggle
  • Sports

he St. Louis U. High community is all too acquainted with the greatest trophy in all of high school sports: The Jesuit Cup. Every year, SLUH’s hockey and golf teams face off against fellow Jesuit institution De Smet to lay it all on the line for the honor of raising the Jesuit Cup trophy and proving which school is really better. This year, in an event synonymous with nail-biting finishes, the SLUH golf team blew out De Smet to retain the J Cup title for the second year in a row. However, this success couldn’t be translated into the next week at Districts, when only senior captain Louis Cornett—who tied for first place individually with an even-par 72—qualified for State.

Last year, the introduction of Zoom learning allowed World Religions teacher Rob Garavaglia to organize Zoom meetings with speakers around the world and offer students a firsthand perspective on the religions they learn about in class.
