Christian Brothers College High School President Mike England resigned this weekend citing personal reasons, school staff confirms to Patch.
UPDATED: 1:10 p.m. Monday- After a reported 25 years with the school, Christian Brothers College High School President Mike England resigned suddenly Sunday citing personal reasons, according to CBC Director of Communications Rob Staggenborg. The school is located just off Highway 40 in Town and Country. "The faculty was notifed on Sunday that he resigned for personal reasons," Staggenborg tells Patch. "As far as I know, no one really knew about it until the announcement was made." Staggenborg said school staff cannot release much information on the resignation since it's a personnel issue, but tells Patch it was all very unexpected and parents were then notified by email Monday morning.

A look at how West County area prep standouts are being rewarded this holiday season as their college football programs reach postseason bowl games.
College football teams are getting more than just a few weeks of extra practice and a trip out of town when their schools are selected for postseason bowl games. For the players, a trip to Shreveport, Pasadena or New York City also often means a literal shopping spree worth hundreds of dollars. Here's a look at what some players from the St. Louis area are getting, according to Sports Business Daily: University of Missouri/AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl: Gift suite, Timely Watch Co. watch, New Era cap, commemorative football.

The Cadets have four senior leaders, but they'll rely on a talented junior class that went 23-2 at the JV level last year.
If it weren’t for having to play the number one team in the city four times last season, the Christian Brothers College High School boys basketball team would have had itself a fantastic season in 2010-2011. The Cadets went 19-8 last year, but take away those four losses to the Bradley Beal-led Chaminade Red Devils. CBC would have had a championship-caliber season, and would have easily been considered one of the favorites to win state. Instead, it was Chaminade that had the number one ranking and got all the glory last year. This year though, CBC head hoops coach Bob McCormack believes he has a squad, young as it is, that can accomplish some of the things last year’s team couldn’t. “I think we learned a lot last year,” McCormack said. “It…

The Stars' defense doesn't hold up against the No. 1 team in the state for a 31-10 loss.
The McCluer North defense that managed to create havoc against every team this season finally met its match against College Brothers College High School Friday night in a Missouri Class 6 quarterfinal game. The combination of a swift CBC offensive machine, the Stars lack of execution on offense in the first half and a neutralized North defensive line resulted in a 31-10 win for CBC. The heavily favored Cadets held a slim 10-3 lead at halftime thanks to the Stars coming away with a single field goal, despite having the ball inside the 20-yard line four times during the half. North (10-2) played well in the first half but couldn't finish drives and simply ran out of gas in the second half. "They were better than us, bottom line," Stars coach…

De Smet takes the CBC Tournament title for the first time since 1996 as the Cadets are left frustrated.
Judging by the early-season scores, the Metro Catholic Conference soccer race will be, well, par for the course. It'll be a race to the finish, and the participants from top to bottom will be just as good as the other. "Every game's a load," Chaminade coach Mike Gauvain said before the season. "These games are intense, the skill level is quality and it shouldn't be any different this season." The De Smet Spartans have jumped out of the chute with a 4-1 record and winners of the CBC Tournament for the first time since 1996. The Spartans were victorious over Vianney 2-0 Saturday afternoon and after SLUH knocked off CBC 3-1 in the late game at CBC High School, it gave the Spartans the tournament title based on their 2-1 record. CBC (2-1-1) …

The Cadets score three goals by the 25th minute with five potential starters sidelined by injury.
With five potential starters sidelined with injuries, the CBC soccer team needed to workout reserves in live action. With a three goal lead by the 25th minute, the Cadets had more than enough time to sit three starters for the second half of a 5-0 nonconference victory Tuesday night over visiting Whitfield. “We haven’t established a starting lineup because we haven’t had everyone to choose from,” CBC coach Terry Michler said. “Every time we play, we put a starting team out there, but everybody is playing. So right now we’re building depth, so when we get a starting lineup, we can go pretty far into the lineup with people that have experience.” Playing a Whitfield (1-3-0) team that starts five sophomores, CBC (2-1-1) planned to pressure the…

Area quarterbacks get a chance to air it out during this inaugural 7-on-7 football tournament at De Smet.
A 7-on-7 football tournament is the perfect opportunity to showcase quarterbacks. There were plenty on display Saturday at De Smet Jesuit High School. The St. Louis Metropolitan Football Coaches Association held its inaugural 7-on-7 tourney at De Smet with 23 teams from Missouri and Illinois participating. Top area quarterbacks, such as Dalton Demos of Christian Brothers College, Gateway Tech’s Paul Rice, Ladue’s Brandon Carr, De Smet’s Conner Harrison, Fort Zumwalt West’s Drew Hare and Lindbergh’s Peter Simpson all aired it out without having to worry about getting hit by an oncoming rush. The tournament was two-hand touch, played without pads and had no rushing attempts. “The biggest thing is that the quarterbacks get work,” De Smet …
