Girls dominate in Hays
October 6, 2005
Forty five seconds — “That’s a lot,” De Soto’s Lauren Karnitz said, slightly understating. It’s a mountain of time off Karnitz’s personal best, and it’s a very welcome sign to coach Chris McAfee. Morgan Frehe finished third with a personal best time of 12 minutes and five seconds and four Wildcats were under 13:07 as the De Soto girls dominated Thursday at Hays, winning the meet by 10 points over Colby.
De Soto soccer bounces back, picks up win
October 6, 2005
The Wildcats fell 5-2 to Maranatha and but for a few minutes in the second half, it wasn’t even really close. But something happened. Down 3-0, Brady Seaman broke free and scored. Moments later, Larry Price did the same, and what had seemed destined to be another sad chapter in the demise of the 2005 Wildcat soccer team instead became the rallying cry.
De Soto thumps Bulldogs
October 6, 2005
Jake Morse isn’t a running quarterback. There’s a whole different quarterback for running plays actually. Still, when the sophomore signal caller saw a hole in Friday night’s game against Anderson County, he couldn’t pass it up. Morse rolled to his right and looked for a receiver, but pulled the ball down and scrambled six yards for a touchdown with four minutes, 14 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter as De Soto (4-1) got back to its winning ways, holding off the Bulldogs 28-14.

Frontier League on the line at Eudora
October 6, 2005
It’s amazing, the power of a win. Coach Brad Scott had already conducted two interviews Tuesday. Nevertheless, when asked, he filed out of the locker room before practice for one more. Friday’s game, which will decide the Frontier League champion for the second-consecutive season, is one of the biggest games in the area and will attract media from across northeast Kansas. And it may all be because of one win: last year’s 12-7 Wildcat victory that wrapped up De Soto’s first league title in 10 years.
Tennis hopes to send seven to state
October 6, 2005
The De Soto tennis team has a goal that might come across as a bit ambitious as first. The Wildcats don’t want their top player to earn a trip to state at Monday’s regionals tennis match. They don’t want the best doubles team to go either. The varsity team wants every player, all seven, to punch a ticket to state, and De Soto coach Michael Sullivan said it’s actually a possibility.
