Golfers struggle at regional tourney
May 18, 2006
Hopes were appropriately high, and perhaps that’s what makes it all so disappointing. Returning to the site of its best tournament all season — Osawatomie — the De Soto golf team couldn’t come close to matching itself at Monday’s regional. Rather than qualifying numerous players — perhaps even the entire team — to the state tournament, the Cats are left with serious questions and a long off season with which to find the answers.

Cats just short in upset bid
May 18, 2006
They hit the ball hard. They fielded it as cleanly as they ever have. They put runners on and kept innings alive. They tried, and afterward, they cried. Despite what De Soto softball coach Kelly Dennis termed the most inspired performance of the season, the Wildcats fell just short Monday, falling at home in the first round of the regional playoffs to Eudora, 2-1.
Riding the bubble
De Soto could qualify between one and 17 athletes to the state meet
May 18, 2006
Angela Topf wasn’t considered a threat to make the state track meet when she showed up for practice on the first day of the season. Heck, she wasn’t even considered a threat to make the state track meet when she showed up to throw the shot put at the Shawnee Mission North Relays May 5. But Topf added four whole feet to her shot put since the start of the season, setting a personal best first on May 5, then again Thursday at the Frontier League track meet and now the De Soto sophomore has emerged as a legitimate state contender.

Cats tumble in regional
May 18, 2006
