Chess Tournament

MRH Hosts 2nd Annual Gateway Chess Tournament

MRH will be hosting it’s 2nd Annual Fall Gateway Chess Tournament this Saturday! Last year’s tournament brought over 30 schools to Maplewood, and over 300 student + faculty.   Volunteers are needed to help setup tables and chairs Friday (5 – 7 p.m.), if you can help please show up at the high school cafeteria around 5pm or shortly after, though we will always welcome help a little later if you can’t make until after 5:30 or so. This is a great way to show off our district and community – let’s pull off another successful tournament this year! More information on the fall tournament, this Saturday, November 4th can be found at



Blue Devils Girls Softball moves into 1st place!

The Maplewood Blue Devils Girls Softball (5th – 7th grade team), has dominated — winning their last game 27-5.  The team has won their last six games in a row, and has now pulled into first place in the Webster Softball league. Go Blue Devils! Have local sports news?  Send us your information – we would love to hear from you.

MRH Blue Devils Softball brings home 2 wins!

The MRH Blue Devils girls softball team brought home 2 wins  in their last double-header game of fall ball, playing in the Afton Athletic league. They played a double-header, winning the first game 22 – 17, and the second game was close to a shutout, winning 19 – 4. They played a great fall season (fall ball was a new thing this year), playing in the very competitive Affton league. We’re got a great group of girls who are die-hard about the sport! Do you have kids playing sports in MRH School District or in Brentwood?  I’d love to get more local sports news posted here on 40 South.
