Trinity High School

Trinity celebrates after defeating Cardinal Ritter 45-19 to win the Class 3 state championship.

It was a tremendous season for high school football in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

A highly successful 2018 season in St. Louis culminated with a historic showing at the annual Show-Me Bowl, where four St. Louis teams brought home state championships. It was the first time that it has happened in the history of the Show-Me Bowl.

The St. Louis area swept every state championship from Class 3 up to Class 6 as Trinity won the Class 3 state championship for the first time in school history. Ladue won the Class 4 state title, which was also its first in school history. Vianney took home the Class 5 state title for the second time in three years and CBC won the Class 6 state championship for the third time in four years.

Adding to the dominance of St. Louis was Cardinal Ritter and MICDS, which took home state runner-up trophies in Class 3 and Class 4, respectively as they participated in all-St. Louis state championship games.

In the Class 3 championship game, Trinity defeated Cardinal Ritter 45-19 in an all St. Louis final. Ladue defeated MICDS 48-11 to win the Class 4 championship in the battle of Warson Road. Vianney made it a clean sweep for St. Louis with a 28-14 victory over Fort Osage. The Golden Griffins trailed 14-0 at halftime, but stormed back with 28 unanswered points to take the championship.
