Senior running back/linebacker Tyler Walker scored four times and nabbed a last-second interception to thwart U. City's final comeback attempt.
CLAYTON — In the end, Clayton just had too much Tyler Walker. Although the senior running back/linebacker stands just 5'7, and weighs 160 pounds soaking wet, he proved too much to handle Monday night at Centene Stadium, as University City valiantly fought, but couldn't get past the Greyhounds, in a 27-20 Class 4 District 5 championship game loss. Clayton, which is now 9-3 on the year, advances to play Jefferson City Helias in the state quarterfinals on Saturday. Helias pounded Hannibal (MO) on Monday, and will be the host team when it meets the Greyhounds at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. U. City finished its year with a 6-6 record, but will go into the offseason lamenting its missed chances against Clayton on Monday. The Lions were stopped on a …

City quarterback George Brown's final pass and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown, to clinch a 27-20 victory for the Greyhounds. Walker, who also had three touchdown runs for Clayton, scored four times for the second straight game, as the Greyhounds won their second district football title in the last three years. U.

Lions enjoyed early 4-0 lead, but couldn't hang on in 7-6 10-inning loss to Huskies.
OVERLAND — It was a day of good and bad for the University City High boys baseball team. The Lions played a dynamite first few innings, and enjoyed a 4-0 lead Saturday morning, in their MSHSAA Class 4 District 5 playoff opener against host Ritenour High School. Unfortunately though, the bad was U. City couldn't hold onto that lead, nor could it maintain the 6-5 edge it had going into the final inning of regulation play, before eventually losing their first round playoff matchup to the Huskies, 7-6, in 10 innings. "It's disappointing," U. City baseball coach Rick Seim said. "We had our chances to win this game, and we just didn't capitalize. I thought we played a pretty good game against a pretty good team, we just didn't close it out when…

Misplays in final minutes too much to overcome as Lions lose 70-65 to visiting Falcons.
UNIVERSITY CITY HIGH SCHOOL – The best way to characterize Friday night’s critical Suburban South Conference boys basketball game at the Ed Crenshaw Gymnasium between visiting Rockwood Summit and homestanding University City, might be to call it a tale of three ballgames. First, there was the opening quarter, when Summit dominated the action and nearly ran U. City off the floor. Then there was the second quarter, when U. City was so good on offense and defense that Summit could barely get a shot off, let alone score. And then there was the fourth quarter, when despite the previous huge swings in momentum, both clubs played sensational basketball and took turns putting themselves in position to win. Unfortunately for the home team, it was …
