Every king needs a crown jewel. CBC won its first state championship in football this past November. At the football banquet on January 11, the program released the design of the Show-Me Bowl championship ring. With sports like basketball, soccer and the resident jewelry aficionados CBC Hockey, football can now have a hand in CBC’s jewel box. It includes one baseball ring, one racquetball ring, one roller hockey ring, two lacrosse rings, six basketball rings, eight soccer rings, 13 ice hockey rings, and now one football ring.

CBC basketball started the winter season out with a win at the St. Francis Borgia Pepsi Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament. But the Cadets were quickly challenged when they faced their Metro Catholic Conference rival, Chaminade High School. Given the rivalry between these two schools, the sold out crowd was energized and ready to see some great basketball. Significant members in the crowd were Duke University and National Team coach Mike Krzyzewski, University of Missouri-Columbia’s Kim Anderson, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s coach, Roy Williams. Sadly for the Cadets, Chaminade had a dominating performance from star juniors Jayson Tatum and Tyler Cook. The Cadets lost 81-59 and are currently working to bounce back from the loss.

A high school football career has a very bleak outlook. Every player knows that unless you win state, your last game will be a losing effort. The last time CBC finished No. 1 was in 1963. The goal of getting to the state final has been the team’s target for the last 18,627 days. In the 2006 Show-Me Bowl, the CBC class of 2007 only scored seven points and limped out of the Edward Jones Dome. The CBC class of 2012 also felt the heartbreak of defeat. The CBC class of 2015 finally ended the 51-year drought on November 29 with a 31-24 win over Rockhurst High School.

On November 18, 2014, St. Louis area high school senior athletes, excluding football players, signed to Division I and II colleges. CBC celebrated five athletes who were a part of the big day: Ryan Deering (baseball), Stephen Haring (baseball), Shane Melbrod (baseball), Matt Vierling (baseball), and Jerrick Powell (track).

The Cadet hockey team opened up the season on November 3 with a 15-0 win against the Jaguars from Seckman High School. This dominating win to open up the season only sets the expectations higher for the Cadets who return five seniors from the 2013 Wickenheiser Cup Champion team. This year’s team is looking to continue the legacy of the Cadet hockey program which has won 13 of their 14 Wickenheiser Cup appearances.
