After a great start to the week on the Prep Sports scene, Mother Nature decided to flex her muscles and make things challenging for everyone over the past few days. 

Let’s take a look at a few of the big stories that happened earlier in the week in the Friday Fast Break.

  • The Westminster boys’ team battled back from a 15-point deficit to defeat CBC 45-43 Monday evening at WCA. The Cadets held a 20-5 advantage at the end of the first quarter, but the Wildcats outscored CBC 33-12 over the next two quarters to take a 38-32 lead after three periods. The Cadets drew even with Westminster late in the contest before Kobi Williams drilled a jumper with seconds remaining in the contest to push the Wildcats to the win. Williams finished the game with 21 points while Casen Lawrence added 12 markers in the come from behind victory.
  • The Kirkwood girls’ swimming team claimed their ninth consecutive Suburban Conference title Tuesday evening as the Pioneers scored 392 points to hold off Parkway South for the team title. Sophie Wallace won the 100-yard Free in a time of 51.67 while Olivia Thurman took the title in the 500-yard Free with a time of 5:10.86 to lead Kirkwood to the title. Parkway South’s Kylee Sullivan won a pair of individual events to help the Patriots earn second place in the team chase. This was a preview of what will come in the MSHSAA Class Two Championships in two weeks as both Kirkwood and Parkway South will look to win the state team title.
  • Fort Zumwalt South girls’ swimming and diving team held off Holt to win its first GAC Conference Championship in 20 years Tuesday night at the St. Peters Rec-Plex. The Bulldogs scored 447 points to claim the title while Holt came in second with 408 points. Maddie Lady won the 100-yard Butterfly in a time of 1:03.46 while Isabelle Reardon claimed the 500-yard Free title with a time of 5:40.35 to pace the Bulldogs in the team victory.

This weekend will be interesting due to the road conditions in the area. There have already seen a lot of cancellations and postponements due to the weather for Friday evening with games and tournaments being pushed to Saturday and possibly Sunday. 

Here is a quick rundown of what we know as of late Friday morning.

  • The Missouri State High School Activities Association girls’ wrestling district tournament was scheduled to begin Friday evening, but due to the weather, things are going to start now on Saturday. Both Lafayette and North Point high schools will host the districts on this side of the state, and they will start things off Saturday morning with prelims taking place. The rest of the schedule will either take place Sunday or Monday.
