Football Victory in Class 4 District 3 Semifinal Game

On Saturday at Ron Holtman Stadium, the Rams Football team scored a 31-6 victory against Trinity as showcased in this STL Today article. The Class 4 District 3 semifinal game was packed with momentum from the start. The team was fortunate enough to have CDS alum Joe Buck ’87 introduce our MICDS seniors as the announcer for Senior Night! What a meaningful way to start the game!

Together, the team delivered excellent passes, runs, tough defense, strategic blocks, and smooth field goals on their way to victory. Next, the Rams will host St. Dominic in the district championships on Saturday, November 14 at 1 p.m. Go Rams!

Boys Soccer Advances to Semifinals

On Tuesday, the Boys Soccer team competed in sectionals against Monett. They won 5 to 1 and are advancing to the semifinals! Semifinals will take place at Pleasant Hill on Saturday, November 14 with a 3 p.m. start against the Roosters with a shot at the state competition on the line!

Here are two videos of the team in action on Tuesday (video 1 and video 2)! Keep it up, Rams!

Girls Tennis Earns 3rd in Class 2 State Meet

The MICDS Girls Tennis season finish is recapped in the Sports Briefs by West Newsmagazine. The Rams came in third overall at the Class 2 state meet in Springfield. The last time the Tennis team made it to the state final was in 2017. Only one current player is a senior, so all but one student will return next year to take their potential to the next level. Congratulations, Rams!
