Pair of wins stand out in team’s winning season
June 8, 2006
De Soto girls soccer coach Darren Erpelding saying he plans an offseason overhaul of his team’s workout and conditioning regime would seem a harsh indictment of the program’s first seasons in existence. But that’s not exactly the case, he said while reflecting on his team’s 2006 season. It’s much more a sign of potential he sees in his two-year-old program.
Hampton heads down the river
De Soto senior set to continue volleyball career
June 8, 2006
It’s a decision many high school athletes have to make at some point. What’s next? For Lauren Hampton, De Soto’s two-sport standout athlete, making a decision was difficult, but Tuesday she announced she had finally arrived at one.
Archery making inroads
June 8, 2006
If Tracy Jonas has his way, public schools across Kansas will offer students the opportunity to learn a new sport. They’ll learn to shoot with a bow and arrow. The Edwardsville resident was hired a month ago as the archery coordinator for schools by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Last weekend, in conjunction with the National Archery in Schools Program, the department trained 15 instructors to train eight school teachers from as far away as Pratt how to teach students archery.
Bat Cats improve again in ‘06

That said, former Wildcats coach Steve Deghand said the Cats probably got as far as they possibly could have, and that’s something to be proud of.
Summer school
De Soto’s Pat Burton preparing for more than just local all-star game
June 8, 2006
Sweat pouring down his cheeks and his chest heaving for a clean breath of the muggy evening air, one has to wonder if deep in Pat Burton’s mind he didn’t ask if it all really made sense. School’s out for Burton and all the rest of De Soto’s students and for many — especially members of Burton’s recently graduated senior class — it is time to kick back, relax and enjoy the summer.
