Bombers stage big rally to come from behind and defeat host Westminster, 63-61.
No one could ever make a case that the Burroughs Bombers aren’t a clutch basketball team. Down by as many as 18, the Bombers staged one of those Hollywood type come-from-behind efforts to edge Westminster Christian Academy on the Wildcats home court, 63-61. This could have been one of those classic trap type games. Westminster was primed and ready. A big home loss to Burroughs on their football field was hardly forgotten. The Cats packed the joint with noisy, boisterous students. The crowd roared with approval when prior to the game, gritty senior John Eric Steiner was honored alongside his parents for reaching the 1,000 career plateau earlier in the week. “We weren’t guarding anybody. They were getting outside shots,” said Bomber coach …
The center, headed to Saint Louis U. fired in 24; Westminster crushed Burroughs, 65-27.
Scoring 1,000 points in a basketball career is a remarkable achievement. With 7:22 left in the Westminster Christian Academy game with John Burroughs Friday night, senior Sadie Stipanovich of the host Wildcats netted that coveted last two points. The crowd behind the Cats bench roared with approval. Every single girl on the bench knew exactly when the moment would happen. Stipanovich is the first Metro Conference player to reach the 1,000 point plateau since Delaney Hobbs did it for MICDS two winters ago. Hobbs is a student at Wake Forest University. Just for good measure, this 6-foot-3 senior who will play next for Saint Louis University got two more points in the game, and the Cats crushed Burroughs, 65-27. A running fourth quarter clock…

Wilcats lose to Smithville 47-37. To play in the third-place game with St. Louis' Miller Career Academy.
Columbia--The Westminster Christian Academy team came to Mizzou Arena with high expectations. What they got in the semifinals with Smithville in Class 4 was a disappointing loss. The Wildcats can count the ways. The taller, more physical Westminster team was out maneuvered often by Smithfield, who goes into the title game with a 27-5 mark. "It was a tough game. We just never got into the flow," said Westminster coach Steve Stipanovich. Smithville made last year's final 4 and was able to capitalize on that experience. The game stayed at pretty much a 10 and 11 point lead for Smithville in the final 16 minutes. The Wildcats made a late run, cutting the lead to three, 37-34. For a moment it looked like an unlikely hero would step up. Senior …

Wildcats cruise to a 54-46 district title over rival MICDS.
The Westminster Christian girls’ basketball team has this thing about an inside-out game. They love to work the ball into 6-foot-3 junior center Sadie Stipanovich, then work a little give and go with their three pepper-pot guards Kayla Armstrong, Courtney Powell and Brooke Cusumano. All that inside-out play payed dividends. The Wildcats stormed the MICDS home court for a 54-46 championship. Much to their delight, they go on to sectional play at Parkway West on Wednesday. The Rams season is over. Westminster moves on with a 24-3 mark while the Rams wind up 19-6. Things looked hopeful for MICDS. They scored the first two points of the game and had a mini 24-23 halftime lead. Last year in the District finals at Clayton, they had a five point …

It was a big week for the Matheny family, as Westminster Christian Academy students Tate and Katie Matheny also make collegiate decisions this week.
Mike Matheny spent a lot of time last spring following his son, Tate, and the Class 3 state champion Westminster Christian Academy baseball team. But Matheny will not be spending as much time at Westminster during Tate's senior season as he just got a new job, as manager of the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. "That balance of power of career and family has always been a tough one for me, and I believe it's tough for everybody in this industry," Matheny said at a press conference Monday. "But the dynamics in my particular family have certainly changed, and a great example is yesterday was a tremendous day for our family. Not just for me, but my son (Tate) signs his national letter of intent to go to Missouri State. My daughter …

Parkway Central at Seckman is moved back to 8 p.m. Friday, while Westminster moves Saturday's game up to 10:00 a.m.
The Seckman v. Parkway Central Friday night high school football matchup is starting one hour later — at 8 p.m. — with officials hoping for slightly cooler temperatures as the sun sets. Officials made the decision apparently Thursday, when temperatures hit 103 degrees at St. Louis-Lambert International Airport, and a heat index reading of 106.2 degrees. The record for this day (since records were kept) is 104 degrees, according to weather officials. Seckman Senior High is in Arnold's Fox C-6 School District, located at 2800 Seckman Rd., Imperial, MO 63052.
