De Soto smokes Bonner, 35-7
November 3, 2005
It was essentially a meaningless game and the atmosphere around Bonner Springs reflected that. There were plenty of good places to park. The sparse crowd didn’t even come close to filling the stands. The dance team’s Halloween music mix didn’t even work during halftime. In fact, about the only signs of life Thursday came from the De Soto Wildcats. De Soto, booted from postseason consideration after a loss to Tonganoxie, rebounded to top form against Bonner, shutting down the Braves, 35-7, to secure the Cats’ third-straight winning season.

McNamara 17th, Boys sixth and state cross country

Inconsistency and poor race strategy dogged De Soto’s boys cross country team all season. But Saturday the Wildcats overcame both, grabbing sixth place at the Class 4A state cross country meet with a strong performance across the board. Tanner McNamara led the Cats through the Wamego Country Club golf courses hills, finishing 17th with a time of 17 minutes, 12 seconds in his strongest race of the season.
Girls fifth at state cross country
November 3, 2005
The rolling green hills of the Wamego Country Club golf course didn’t bring the De Soto girls cross country team the Class 4A championship it had dreamed of or the top-three finish it had hoped for. It brought improvement, however, and at the end of the season, that’s plenty to be thankful for, coach Chris McAfee said. “I’m really proud,” McAfee said. “At the beginning of the year, I didn’t even know if the girls were going to make it to state. To come here and finish fifth is great.”
