Student reviewer from Rockwood Summit says the ensemble and crew from "Any Number Can Die" did not disappoint in either thrilling the audience or making it laugh.
Thursday, November 15, 2012
By Brian Ball Rockwood Summit High School As the curtain opened for the production of Any Number Can Die by Fred Carmichael at Northwest High School the mysteries started right from the start. At Raven’s Head mansion at precisely 12 o'clock, the will of the deceased Cedric Russell is to be read, but abnormal things occur and it turns into a murder scene. This two-hour, three-act show is sure to be a thrilling comedy. The entire ensemble was fit to be on the stage. The lines were precise, the comedy was displayed at just the right moment, and every actor knew their purpose. Despite the projection issue in the first act, the ensemble made adequate adjustments to the second and third act. The ensemble painted a clear picture of who each …

Falcons welcome back Beisel; get 108 rushing yards from McIntosh in a 34-0 victory
FENTON – The return of their best player gave the Falcons the spark they needed. The Rockwood Summit football team welcomed Eric Beisel back on the field Wednesday night after the University of Missouri recruit was out for two months with a broken foot. The 6-foot-4, 238-pound linebacker led a dominant defensive outing as the Falcons advanced to the MSHSAA Class 5 District 1 championship game with a 34-0 rout of Fox. “It was a big lift for the kids, the coaches and the school,” Summit coach Mike Bellers said of Beisel’s return. “He’s probably the finest football athlete to come out of Rockwood Summit. To do without him for two months was something we had to endure, but we’re just happy he’s back.” Without Beisel, the Falcons dropped their …

In the new Missouri system, every team has a shot at a state title. Here's when teams around the Fenton-High Ridge Patch will play.
High school football coaches left the field last weekend not quite sure who they'd be playing this week in the new state football playoff system. The new "district system" uses a technique that, thanks to a point differential, makes every score count. Here's how it all will shake out: Thursday Friday Rockwood Summit has a first round bye, and will play the winner of Fox-Seckman game on October 31 at 7 p.m. on their home turf. School officials are asking the Student Council to "scare up" excitement around the Halloween game and encourage students to cheer on their Falcons on this spooky night. If Summit does a monster mash on their Fox District foes, they are predicting an away game match up against Jackson on November 5. You can search the…

Also, the Lutheran South Lancer hockey team reached the finals of Wickenheiser Cup while the basketball team captured a district championship.
It was a good week for the sports teams at Lutheran South this week. And for the rest of the area schools, it was the end of the winter season. The Lancer hockey team will be skating for the Wickenheiser Cup championship in the Mid-States Hockey Association after a thrilling win in its semifinal series against Seckman. Lutheran South won the opener of the best-of-two series, 3-2, but Seckman came back in game two with a 5-1 victory. That forced a mini-game, which was won by Lutheran South. The Lancers will face Whitfield for the Wickenheiser Cup title at 5:30 p.m. March 7 at the Scottrade Center. Oakville's hockey team fell just short of joining Lutheran South at the Scottrade Center. The Tigers lost in their semifinal Challenge Cup series…

The Rockwood Summit boys basketball team hoped to ride the emotion and momentum of a last-second win in the semifinals of the Lindbergh Tournament to a tourney title. It was not meant to be as the Falcons lost in the championship game to O'Fallon 58-52.

Jory Woodson hit a shot at the buzzer in the semifinals and had an outstanding tournament overall. Woodson had 21 points in the opener, 13 in the semifinals and 19 in the championship game.

The senior scored three goals as Oakville defeated Rockwood Summit 3-1 Tuesday night at Oakville.
The long range forecast calls for good weather Saturday. That might not be a good thing for the Oakville soccer team. The Tigers won their second consecutive game in the rain in do-or-die situations Tuesday night. Oakville had defeated Vianney 3-2 in the rain in the Class 3 District 7 championship game Thursday night and followed that with a 3-1 win over Rockwood Summit Tuesday in the Class 3 sectional at Oakville. The Tigers will play the winner of the Francis Howell Central versus Hazelwood West game Saturday. Those teams were scheduled to play their sectional Wednesday night. "Playing in weather like this means nothing to us," Oakville senior Jared Swierk said. "The conditions don't affect us at all. We just go out and play the game." …

Seckman and Rockwood Summit will play Wednesday and Oakville plays Friday in the opening round.
Oakville, Seckman and Rockwood Summit have a combined record of just over .500 (15-14), but all three teams are preparing for the first round of the state playoffs after advancing in district play. Oakville (5-5) will travel to St. Louis University High (7-3) in a Class 6 playoff game Friday night. The Tigers not only lost their finale against Eureka but also lost their top player, Javon Henderson, with a knee injury. Javon's brother, Jaron, picked up some of the slack Friday as he caught 12 passes for 157 yards against the Wildcats including a touchdown. Andy Oliver completed 22 of 34 passes for 263 yards but that was not nearly enough as Eureka led 28-0 midway through the second quarter. Summit is the only one of the three area playoff …

Webster Groves wins with a 31-14 victory over Rockwood Summit.
Webster Groves came into Friday's game with a 3-0 record, while scoring almost 48 points in each game. On the team's first possession of the night, the Statesmen needed just 48 seconds and 3 plays to score the first touchdown of the night. Statesmen senior quarterback, Rayshawn Simmons, met no resistance as he easily guided his team up to the Falcons’ 13-yard line. Simmons gave the ball to his talented running back, Dante Flowers, who then ran untouched into the end zone. The point-after attempt was blocked by Summit. “I’m disappointed that we did not play very physically up on the offensive line,” said Cliff Ice, Statesmen head coach. “I thought Dante (Flowers) ran the football well.” Rockwood never seemed to be able to get its …
