Webster Groves High School's Sarah Addison makes a difference with Kirkwood-based Youth in Action.
A 14-year-old Webster Groves student busy building a singing and acting career has found yet another passion to juggle. Her latest love is volunteering, and she’s thrown herself into it with the same zeal she has for the stage and screen. Sarah Addison said she was looking for a way to earn service hours when she entered Webster Groves High School this year as a freshman. She found a home in Youth in Action, a Kirkwood-based service group. Since September she has put in well over the 50 hours she was shooting for. “Actually, I just thought it was a lot of fun,” she said. “I really like meeting new people and all different types of people and just helping out in the community in general. I like meeting other people who care about helping …

Webster Groves wins the turnover war on its way to a dominant victory on Thanksgiving.
Kirkwood proved to be no match for Webster Groves as the Statesmen capitalized on several Kirkwood turnovers to cruise to a 40-14 victory on Thanksgiving. With Kirkwood on the verge of playing a state championship game, both teams' junior varsity squads clashed in the annual Turkey Day Game. Kirkwood started the game with a fumble on the opening kickoff. After Webster failed to capitalize on the turnover, the Pioneers took over possession deep in their own territory. On the Pioneers' first offensive play, quarterback Connor Scott was sacked and fumbled, which led to a defensive touchdown by Webster Groves' Thomas Higgins. The Statesmen held an early 7-0 lead. Scott never returned to action and appeared to be nursing an arm injury. William …

Many think 1907 was the first year of football between Kirkwood and Webster because there was no prior history. But the Turkey Day Game has an earlier existence.
Yearly, newspapers and broadcasters want to know the same thing: Which annual Turkey Day Game is this? Such a question seems simple but is not. The Turkey Day Game, the name now of the Kirkwood-Webster (or, depending upon who says it, Webster-Kirkwood) football contest, overly simplifies what the game was prior to Thanksgiving Day 1928. It is a game that precedes by 70 years the first Show-Me Bowl game, precedes by 28 years the creation of the Missouri State High School Activities Association and precedes by at least nine years the Suburban League and its related formations, including its predecessor, the St. Louis County Interscholastic League, which both Kirkwood and Webster were key players in founding. Because the two schools and their…

Patch takes a look at the latest news and notes from the Suburban South Conference, including the postseason getting under way. BASEBALL The Seckman baseball team capped off an undefeated record in the Suburban South Conference with a 16-6 victory over University City last Wednesday.

The Webster Groves School District Board of Education unanimously approved SM Wilson to construct a new building planned for Webster Groves High School.
Webster Groves High School is getting a little bigger. A planned addition to the school—a three-story building that will house fine arts, social studies and the science program—will be built by SM Wilson & Co., a general contractor based in Missouri. The recommendation to select SM Wilson was made by Diane Moore, the district's chief financial officer, and representatives from Wight and Company, the architects of the planned addition, at Monday's board of education meeting. SM Wilson presented a bid to construct the building for $21,281,475. District representatives will be meeting with SM Wilson on Wednesday to determine a date to break ground. Moore said that, weather permitting, they hoped to begin construction in a few weeks. "We're …

The Pioneers have a chance to break the school record for wins in one season.
Our weekly look at the latest news and notes from the Suburban South Conference: The 2011 season has been a surprising and record-breaking one for the Kirkwood girls soccer team. The Pioneers set a school record in 2010 with 14 victories. However, they did so with 12 seniors. But Kirkwood’s new-look team equaled their win total from last year with a 2-0 victory over Webster Groves last week. The Pioneers have a chance to break the record on Monday with their final conference game against Seckman. They will get another shot Wednesday in the regular-season finale against Lindbergh and then again in districts, which open with another game against Webster Groves. "Everyone thought that this was going to be a rebuilding season," Kirkwood coach …

In a game worthy of their rivalry, the Statesmen prevail 9-8 in sudden-death overtime over Kirkwood.
Chalk it up to another hard-fought, nail-biting Kirkwood-Webster game. The rivalry, the fans and the Friday night lights at Moss Field brought out the best in both lacrosse teams, but Webster Groves wanted it more, gritting out a 9-8 overtime win over the Pioneers. "Webster came to play," Kirkwood coach Trey Hogan said. "You can't say the Kirkwood-Webster rivalry is dead at all. Everybody came to play." Kirkwood has more losses than wins this year, but they came ready to play on Friday night, jumping ahead 2-0 within the first few minutes. Webster answered, but the Statesmen kept it up and were ahead, 5-2, after the first 12-minute quarter. Webster sophomore Brett Harris was the only one to score in the second period, leaving Kirkwood …
