Goleman’s 20 lead Cats to big win
February 9, 2006
It looked so good it seemed it had to be planned. Kira Gonzalez grabbed the ball and raced down the court, tossing in a layup as she approached the basket and drawing a foul in the process. She missed the free throw, momentarily spoiling the scene, but as Jackie Goleman grabbed the rebound and scored, it was obvious something was a little different with the Cats. After two weeks when points came slowly and painfully, De Soto tossed a giant weight off its shoulders Tuesday, beating Anderson County 48-45.

Hunter England won both of his matches in the 103-pound class and four other Cats picked up wins as De Soto capped off its regular season Thursday at home against Eudora and Anderson County.
