Cadet Pitcher Dan Herrmann held Parkway North hitless until the third inning.
Parkway North may have been the number one seed in the district four baseball playoff tournament which concluded Wednesday on the Vikings' campus, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a much better team coming down the stretch than the CBC Cadets, who won 8 eight of their last nine heading into the title game against Parkway North. Wednesday, the Cadets got to North pitcher Joe Hope early and chased the Sophomore after taking a 5-0 second inning lead behind two early RBI by CBC's Bobby Lang en route to an 11-6 win. The Cadets got five innings from starter Dan Herrmann, who didn't give up a hit until an Ellis Brodsky single in the third inning. The Parkway North (20-6) bench complained about getting squeezed in the strike zone early, but shaky…

The Vikings had a nip and tuck game vs. the rival Colts Monday afternoon, with a birth in the district final on the line.
One hit. That's all it took for Parkway North to get what the Vikings needed to advance past Parkway Central in a district semifinal played at North Monday afternoon. With a man on in the first inning, Colt starter Brian Hillhouse struck out Parkway North's Jon Shanker, but Central could not complete the putout at first base when the ball escaped the cather. North's Garrett Taylor followed that up with a RBI double, the only Viking hit of the game, scoring two runs. An errant throw on a double play conversion plated a third run to back Sophomore starter Joey Reeves. He'd need every one of those runs as Hillhouse shut down the Vikings for the remainder of the game. Reeves worked out of jams throughout the game, except for a Zack Lazenby …

The Colts remain undefeated heading into next weekend's matchup with University City.
In a matchup that carried plenty of upset potential for Parkway Central after last week's win over Webster Groves, the Colts continued a season-long theme focused on using the team's multi-faceted rushing attack and a stingy defense to go on the road and shut out Parkway North 23-0 Friday. "We had a very emotional win last week and I just worried about our intensity and our fire and I challenged our kids and I feel like they lived up to the challenge," Central Head Coach Mark Goldenberg said. Check out our Facebook Photo Gallery From The Game After the the teams traded punts for most of the first quarter, a Parkway Central 82 yard drive exclusively on the ground except for a pass play from Zach Lazenby to Jake Bushman ended with a Lazenby …

North Senior Darrell Johnson’s near-triple double leads Vikings to title game berth against De Smet on Friday.
For the third time this season, archrival boys basketball programs Parkway North and Parkway Central hooked up Wednesday night. The teams traded victories in the two previous meetings, with North earning a 59-51 win in the season opener back in November, and Central claiming a 47-45 win in conference play three weeks ago. But the most important matchup of the season came Wednesday night, when the Vikings and Colts clashed one last time in the MSHSAA Class 5 District 4 semifinals, with the winner earning a shot at the district title game on Friday night. And thanks to a brilliant performance by 6-foot-8, 240-pound senior center Darrell Johnson, it was Parkway North's night, somehow outlasting Parkway Central for a 49-45 win, in front of a …

A new arts council is forming in the city of Manchester. Resident Bill Vivrett, who came up with the initiative, says there is a chance for Manchester to be an art-driven community.
Manchester Resident Bill Vivrett said he has had a long-time dream of making Manchester a center for the arts. Vivrett, a 75-year-old retired art teacher from Parkway North High School, is getting closer to that dream. Vivrett, with the help of other local artists and Manchester aldermen, has gathered a group of residents to create what will be the city's first art's council. “I noticed Chesterfield is just doing so much in their community with their fine arts, so I thought that Manchester should be doing something as well,” Vivrett told Town and Country-Manchester Patch. "In a city as diverse as Manchester, we ought to be doing something to promote the arts." Vivrett said he does not want to be the leader or president of the group, but he…

Overcrowding has been an issue at some elementary schools.
After years of increasing enrollment and overcrowding in schools in its northern attendance area, the Parkway School District has developed a plan to shift school boundary lines. The district's proposal is included in the PDF portion of this article. The plan will be the subject of a series of meetings with parents, starting Monday night at Craig School. The plan will affect students at Craig, McKelvey, River Bend and Ross Elementary Schools, and eventually, Parkway Northeast Middle School and Parkway North High School. Current students at those schools would not be impacted. While boundary changes are difficult for families, Nicole Evans, principal at Craig Elementary is keeping her focus on what it will mean for students. “We must keep …
