The athletic complex at Mary Institute Country Day School will be a beehive of activity come Saturday. One Saturday, each year, the focal point of the Ladue universe focuses on the competition between the Bombers of John Burroughs and the Rams of MICDS.
Two gentlemen who will have special interest are retired football coaches Ron Holtman from MICDS and Jim Lemen from Burroughs. Read their story here from last year.
Parking will be at a premium on the North Warson Road campus. Tailgate revelers will arrive early. Construction on the new MICDS Math-Science Center has reduced parking spaces on the north lot somewhat. If there is no rain, cars will be able to park near the stadium on adjacent athletic fields.
The competition begins early with a community fun run at 8 a.m. winding through the streets of Ladue from Burroughs to MICDS. The Ladue-Frontenac Patch will have coverage of that race by mid-morning Saturday.
Here’s the lineup for Saturday’s competition between Burroughs and MICDS:
9 a.m. girls junior varsity tennis tournament, Burroughs
