May 7 deaths belie plan for fresh start in California.
The deaths of a Parkway West High School graduate and her daughter—a former Parkway district student, were deemed a murder-suicide, California police said Monday. After an 11-week investigation, police in the San Francisco Bay Area said Amy Freeman Burton, 37, shot and killed her daughter Ainsley Freeman, 13, and then shot and killed herself. The bodies were discovered May 7 in the kitchen of their Pleasanton, CA home by Amy Burton's husband, Christopher Burton, 28.

New Seckman coach Jamie Critchlow will rely on running back Blake Pepper, while Parkway Central features receiver Brandon Sheperd.
A fresh season for Seckman football kicks off at 8 p.m. on Friday night as the Jaguars host Parkway Central. Because of safety concerns over heat, the original game time of 7 p.m. has been pushed back. After waiting nine months to play since its final game of 2010, that extra hour may prove to be unbearable for Seckman. New head coach Jamie Critchlow faces a stiff test in his first game as Parkway Central is already 1-0 after a resounding 31-14 defeat of Ladue at home last Friday. The Colts went 6-4 last season, including 5-2 in the extremely tough Suburban South Conference. In that win, Parkway Central star wide receiver Brandon Sheperd had nine catches for 114 yards, and three runs for 30 yards and three total touchdowns. Expect head …

SPRINGFIELD—For the second consecutive year, the Class 2 boys state tennis championship was largely dominated by the play of Rock Bridge High School and Glendale’s Paul Nahon. But several St. Louis-area teams and players showed that they, too, could play high-level tennis at the championship, which took place May 26-28 at the Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield, Mo. In a first-round match that featured two of the best doubles teams in the tournament, Lafayette seniors Mick Lyons and Jake Goodman came back after losing the opening set to topple the Kirkwood team of brothers Drew Morris, a senior, and junior Tanner Morris, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. It was the second time in six days that the doubles teams faced off. On May 21, Lyons and Goodman beat …

The Suburban South Conference season has been wild, but Parkway West finds itself in the league race.
It has been a crazy season on the diamond for Suburban South Conference baseball teams. Not a single one of the eight teams in the league entered play this week with a winning overall record. Seckman and Parkway West, which played on Thursday at Parkway West, shared the conference lead with 2-0 marks as the week began. However, Seckman won on Thursday, 6-4, to grab sole possession of first place at 3-0, while Parkway West is now 3-1. Seckman, which is 7-8 overall, did win a pair of games last week. The Jaguars used separate big innings for wins over Northwest and Webster Groves. Seckman had an eight-run fifth inning and a four-run seventh in a 12-5 nonconference win over Northwest on Wednesday. The Jaguars followed that with a four-run …

A challenging schedule and several close losses have led Parkway Central to a 2-11 start this season.
The Parkway Central baseball team is living by its preseason motto, ‘Be Ready to Play in May’. The Colts, thanks to a brutally tough nonconference schedule, have taken their lumps with a miserable 2-11 start. But coach Ryan Connors says these March and April beatings will pay off soon. Central is looking to make some noise when it gets into the heart of the Suburban South Conference portion of its slate starting this week. "I really feel good about what we might be able to accomplish the second half of the season," said Connors. "(We) might not look good on paper, but I definitely feel we're going to get going in the right direction." The Colts posted an 8-5 win over highly-touted Hazelwood West on Wednesday.
