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.

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.

The Rams have become the favorites to move to Los Angeles says Profootballtalk.com. That is the shocking truth for most die-hard Rams’ fans. The Rams have been a fixture in St. Louis since 1994 and have won the organizations only championship in 1999. The Rams haven’t been to the playoffs since 2004, but still carry a solid fan base. CBC sophomore Joseph Chamberlain said that his family has had season tickets for as long as he can remember. On the flip side, sophomore Max Nicholson said no one really cares about the Rams. Every game I have ever gone to I have seen almost as many open seats as fans and many of the fans are wearing jerseys other than the Rams.

In 2006 the Mehlville High Panthers fell 38-28 with a 2nd half comeback by David Kannapple, Rayon Simmos, and Clay Wolfe to send CBC to its first Show-Me Bowl. In 2011 Dalton Demos, Jonathan Parker and Aarion Penton willed the Cadets to a 66-10 victory over Saint Louis University High School. In 2014, senior Calen Taylor, junior Tré Bryant, and a stout defense led CBC to its third Show-Me Bowl appearance in school history.
