Since CBC’s varsity baseball Coach Mason Horne has come to the program, the team has been a threat for the state title every year. After winning one championship, finishing second twice, and making several other good playoff runs, this year expectations are as high as ever and for some include nothing short of a state championship.
The Cadets have not disappointed early this season, defeating top ranked high school teams in the state including Oakville, Francis Howell, Chaminade, and SLU High School. The Cadets also won the Midwest Baseball Classic tournament that included several of the top teams in St. Louis. This was the first time the Cadets have ever won this tournament.

CBC Lacrosse is known as a powerhouse in the lacrosse community due to two state championships and an overtime loss in the 2014 state championship. The Cadets are looking to bounce back from last year’s state loss by coming out on top this year. They opened the season facing some adversity with one of the captains and star midfielder Cam Corona suffering an injury during the team’s trip to Orlando, Florida. The Cadets first game was against a Metro Catholic Conference rival De Smet Jesuit High School. The Spartans came out and took the game with a 16-6 victory over the Cadets.

On the CBC athletics page it is not likely to see the sport of ultimate, a 7 on 7 sport where players do not need a ball or special fields. All that is needed is a disc and 8 cones. Invented and popularized on college campuses around the country, ultimate frisbee, as it is known to the masses, is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It has gained attention from the International Olympic Committee and is popular on college campuses around the U. S., with many major universities fielding club teams like the universities of Colorado, Pittsburg, Missouri, and Arizona. In the past five years ultimate has also had two professional leagues form: the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) and Major League Ultimate (MLU).
