Extracurriculars & CYO
CYO Spring Track Meet Roundup
The CYO spring track meet was held on May 9 at Bishop O’Connell HS. Although COVID-19 precautions limited the number of events and eliminated traditional meet scoring, the St. Louis track team had athletes compete with skill and sportsmanship. Congratulations to all team members – Kyla Matheis, Alison Nienaber, Isaac Nienaber, Stephen Ntambwe, and Dean DeLorenzo. Additional kudos to Dean and Stephen who were competing for the last time as St. Louis track team athletes. Finally, thanks to Coach Brian Nienaber for coordinating and coaching these athletes and making sure they could compete this year.
CYO Coach of the Year
At St. Louis, we consider coaching to be a ministry, and those who are called to coach are expected to be role models and mentors for our athletes not just on the field of play, but in life. We expect them to model Catholic values, and live their lives in a way worthy of emulation. During this past year, we have one particular coach who embodied the very best of our CYO’s motto of “Virtuous Excellence,” and that is Brian Nienaber, our head track and field and assistant basketball coach. As many of you know, Brian was diagnosed with leukemia in September. Brian faced this challenge head on, and invited all in our community to join him with prayers and tangible signs of support for his family. He fought with vigor, good grace and a faithful spirit, placing his trust in God and all of us to help get his family through his illness. In so doing, he has coached all of us in how to live life to the fullest, how to put ones trust in God and community, and how to be a fighter.  There is no better example for our student athletes and indeed, for all of us, and for these reasons, Brian is our CYO Coach of the year for the 2020-21 school year. Congratulations and thank you for all you do for our community Brian!
