Spring Sports Recaps


Baseball extended their win streak to twelve games, winning both games of a two-game series against Lutheran South by scores of 8-0. Then, over the weekend, the Wildcats took both games of a doubleheader against Marquette. These two teams are among the best in the St. Louis area. Westminster’s success continued on Senior Night Wednesday against Lutheran South, where the Wildcats won 26-0 in three innings. Their schedule finishes up with four games against non-conference opponents including a doubleheader on Saturday against Liberty and Francis Howell North, then a Tuesday game against Holt and the Wildcats’ final game of the regular season: a chance to avenge their worst loss of the season against Lafayette. Then begins the playoffs, where the team is fully expecting a run to State.


In Districts on Monday, the Wildcats took first place overall and moved all five golfers onto Sectionals. At Franklin County Country Club, the home course of Borgia, the Wildcats won the overall team competition with a score of 315. They had three golfers break 80: Jack Wooldridge with a 77 and Lane Davis and Cole Willyard each shooting 78. Their other two golfers, Luke Burkey and Ben Parres, each both shot 82. Westminster’s main competition in the tournament was Priory. They finished one stroke behind with a score of 316. Although Westminster only has one golfer who has made it to State before, their main goal is to go to State as a team. To do that, they will have to make it through Sectionals next Monday at Bogey Hills Country Club.

Girls Lacrosse

Dani Mabry was out the first five games of the season, and the team went 2-3. Once she returned, the team startled to dial it back in. In her first game against John Burroughs, she scored her first goal, and then another. Dani has managed to score multiple goals in every game she has played this season, including five goals in the big win against Incarnate Word. On the season, Dani Mabry has 30 goals, leading the team. Along with her goal scoring, she has managed to be apart of 12 assists. Helping her in goal scoring is Junior Bridget Sullivan, adding 27 goals.

The Wildcats are now on a three game losing streak with losses to MICDS, Lafayette, and O’Fallon (IL). The game against MICDS, one of the top teams in the area, ended in a bad loss by a score of 20-5. Their next game against Lafayette, the best team in the State who beat MICDS, ended in a 16-4 loss. Then, on Wednesday, the Wildcats played O’Fallon at home. They had previously lost to them earlier in the season by 14 goals. On Wednesday, they lost 10-8. They now have three games left to be played next week before the playoffs start.

Boys Lacrosse

The Boys Lacrosse team has been off and on the past few weeks, and at this point in the season, the team can’t afford this constant shift in momentum. The boys had a great game fighting off Marquette, but senior night was a different story. They played Clayton last Friday and although they won, that did not change the fact that they played down to Clayton’s level and seemed to play the slowest they have all season. Then, yesterday the Wildcats played a very good Ladue team and came out hot taking a quick lead 5-1, but after a few unnecessary penalties that were very avoidable, Ladue started scoring. The Rams, who will be the number two seed in the playoffs, took advantage on the man up, scoring three times in a row in the second. The Wildcats have a recurring problem of starting out flying but slowing down when it matters most. If they want to go far in the playoffs, which they can, they need to pick it up a little because after seeing what some of the playoff play will be like is an eye opener for how the Wildcats will need to play to succeed. With only one game left to play, the Wildcats’ record sits at 7-7.

Boys Volleyball

On Wednesday, Boys Volleyball got a dominating win against Duchesne in two games. The scores were 25-9 and 25-19. It was their first win in their last four games, bring their record to 11-13, highly respectable for a team comprised mostly of athletes from other sports. They will play three more games next week before the playoffs begin.

Girls Soccer

Girls Soccer is on a six-game losing streak. After starting our 6-4, the Wildcats are now 6-10, scoring just two goals in their last six games. The reigning District Champions are having a disappointing season that has been made worse by the loss of Margo O’Meara to Indianapolis. With only three games left, the Wildcats need to pick it up and gain some momentum as they head for the playoffs.
