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 …

Students at the Joy Lieberman Center get a second chance at high school graduation.
Joy Lieberman Learning Center in University City is more than red brick and mortar. It is a place where young people have a second chance at a future they could not have begun to imagine, where high school graduation is possible when all hope was lost. “I messed up, but I get another chance,” said alternative school student Di’ Almond Bedford. “I will be very proud of myself when I graduate,” she said as a smile spread across her face. She will graduate this school year. Named after University City School Board member Joy Lieberman, the center serves high school students at risk of leaving school without a diploma. Two distinct alternative programs are housed at the Lieberman Center: the Alternative School Program, a credit recovery …

The center unveiled the artwork of 24 students that will be on display through September 22.
The Green Center in University City has a student art exhibit now on display through the end of the month. This past Thursday, the center hosted an opening reception for “Connecting with Nature” - an exhibit which features drawings, poetry, and photography - the majority done by 7th graders from Brittany Woods Middle School, who took part in a summer camp at The Green Center. Twenty-four students participated in the program, attending every day for a week, said Jan Oberkramer, the interim executive director of the center. “The kids seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. If we can continue to connect the children with nature that’s a good thing,” said Irv Logan, the vice president of the board of The Green Center “Being outside and being able to …

The district picked up the additional point in the career education/vocational courses category.
The University City School District has secured an eighth accreditation point. Superintendent of Schools Joylynn Pruitt said after a state review of the preliminary data from the Annual Performance Report, University City picked up the additional point in the career education/vocational courses category. "It is quite significant," said Pruitt. "It takes us closer to gaining additional points." To be fully accredited, a district must meet 9-14 of the standards, to receive provisional accreditation, the district must meet 6-9 standards. However, despite having only 8 points, U City remains fully accredited, said Pruitt. "Those numbers only affect accreditation when you are subject to a state review...so, until we're reviewed again we …

Teams total more than 900 yards of total offense, and combine for 11 touchdowns in high-scoring Suburban South Conference affair.
If the first play of the season can be used as any kind of indicator, then the 2011 varsity football campaign is going to mighty exciting for the Parkway West Longhorns. That’s certainly the impression West made during Friday’s season opener at University City High’s Muhl-Schemmer Stadium, when junior Ryan DeMuri ran back the opening kickoff 92 yards for a touchdown, that sparked the Longhorns to a 47-33 win over the host Lions. “It does relax you (when you score on the opening kickoff),” West head coach Jeff Duncan said. “But we told our kids, the game’s far from over. (University City) came back on us a little bit. But it was a big play. We’ll take those any time we can get them.” DeMuri’s brilliant return was only the first of several …
