History

Brentwood High School has had a long standing rivalry with Maplewood-Richmond Heights starting back in 1911. Students often plan to sabotage students of the other school. Even some of the administration have gotten into the rivalry by encouraging students to beat the other school either in MAP Testing or sports. Police usually show up at each sporting event in which Brentwood plays Maplewood. Normally, Maplewood is trumped by Brentwood in most areas, including sports. In the 2009-'10 season of class AA football, Brentwood beat Maplewood once in the regular season as well as in the state playoffs and went to the state playoffs.
