CYC Kicks Contest - Winners


Congratulations to:

  • Mary Grace Angeli (6th grade - St. Simon)
  • Brooke Brennell (6th grade - Immaculate Conception-Arnold)
  • Jackson (2nd grade - St. Theodore) and Jim Hirschbuehler (coach St. Theodore)

on writing the winning essays in our CYC Kicks Contest.  The topic was "How CYC soccer makes me a better Catholic".  The winners received 2 tickets to the Bosnia v Ivory Coast  Road to Brazil  game May 30th at the Edward Jones Dome. 

Here are some exerpts from each of the essays:

  • Mary Grace Angeli, "CYC Soccer ... teaches me to care for others and it helps me take care of my body as a Temple of the Holy Spirit.  We pray a Hail Mary before the game.  That teaches us the importance of offering all we do for Christ."
  • Brooke Brennell, "If I put soccer and God together I will increase in my spiritual dimension.  It helps me accept absolute concepts-winning, losing, hard work and understanding life better."   
  • Jackson Hirschbuehler, "Playing CYC soccer makes me a better Catholic because it has taught me a lot of things that help me be like Jesus.  I have learned to respect others like coaches, players, referees,parents which has helped me respect others in my life."
  • Jim Hirschbuehler, "Being involved with CYC Soccer has had a profound effect on me.  Using the gift God gave me for my passion for sports, expecially soccer, has helped me find a way to becoming a steward to my church and my church community.  It has made me a better Catholic because it has taught me many things about the long-lasting impression a coach can have on a child."

If you did not win the CYC Kicks Contest, you can still go to the game.  The game organizers have offered a CYC Discount if you go to  And use the Discount Code STLOUIS14  

Random Act of Sportsmanship - Let's Play Lacrosse


As noted by the game officials, we would like to recognize the St. Clement Girls Lacrosse coaches Mike Hannegan and Mike Murphy for their Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) this past Saturday.  Their opponent in the Crusader game, Our Lady Queen of Peace was short a few players.  This being the last game of the season and all girls wanting to play, St. Clement loaned OLQP a few players and they had an enjoyable game.  Congrats to the girls who switched jerseys as they also displayed great sportsmanship.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports! 

If you are at a CYC game and spot a RAS, please share that experience by sending an email to so that we can acknowledge and celebrate what CYC Sports is all about.
