These five teams battle each year in every sport for the MCC title. In basketball CBC is considered the main target, coming off a state championship season.

CBC basketball started the winter season out with a win at the St. Francis Borgia Pepsi Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament.

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.

On Top At Last: Football Claims First State Title With Win Over Rockhurst

Tom Hartbeck, Turret staff writer

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.
