If there is anybody who had a more exciting prep career in West County over the last quarter of a century than Bobby Keppel, I would like to meet him. In 1999, Keppel was a star 6-foot-5-inch junior point guard for the De Smet Spartans. In the state championship game, De Smet squared off against the big, bad Vashon Wolverines, who had beaten them badly the year before. Keppel exploded for 19 points in the first half, and De Smet went on to win the state title, 70 to 64. Then in his senior year, Keppel won another state championship—this one was in baseball. Keppel was a flame-throwing righthander who threw 94 on the radar gun and hit homeruns with regularity. When he was on the mound, major league scouts always were behind the plate, all holding up radar guns.

Each of the men takes a different approach to getting the attention of the friendly but easily distracted young man in charge of the shop and the unusual tow-truck driver who assists him.

Dan Tlapek sat under a canopy and rang the sweat out of his shorts. It wasn’t just hot on the artificial turf at Lindenwood University. It was the oven that’s behind the barbecue in the back of hell’s kitchen. Hot would have been pleasant. This was torture.
Justin Bryant did it again. The defending Metropolitan Match Play champion beat Skip Berkmeyer for the second consecutive year. At the recent event held at Old Warson Country Club, Bryant stopped Berkmeyer, 5 & 3. With the two all square, Bryant won No. 8 and 9 with pars to lead 2-up going into the last nine holes. A par on No. 10 gave Bryant a 3-up advantage. A birdie from the right rough on No. 11 gave the Wake Forest senior and De Smet grad a 4-up lead. It ended on No. 15 when Berkmeyer conceded Bryant’s birdie bid.
