De Soto’s defense powers Cats past Sumner
September 7, 2006
De Soto and Sumner combined to generate reels worth of highlights and score 103 points in the first week of the season. And there were highlights when the two 1-0 teams hooked up Thursday night at KC Harmon’s field in Kansas City, Kan. Few could have expected them to be defensive highlights though. The Wildcats improved to 2-0 thanks to two safeties, two touchdowns and a whole lot of hard hitting, beating KC Sumner Academy 18-0.

De Soto league champs … sort of
September 7, 2006
The Frontier League tennis championship tournament does not exist. The De Soto tennis team won’t receive a trophy — not even a plaque. Most of the teams in the league don’t even have a team, but another stellar day of action left De Soto standing atop the four schools that do, and as far as the Wildcats are concerned, that makes them the unofficial and unapologetic league champs.

De Soto picks up two wins
September 7, 2006
It was an odd string of events that led De Soto soccer coach Darren Erpelding to criticize his team midway through Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Atchison. The Cats scored all of their goals in the first half, basically dominating the Redmen with speed.

Cats steamroll ‘Clones
September 7, 2006
It was obvious the De Soto football team was returning a variety of weapons for the 2006 season. Friday night’s season opening win over Ottawa was still a bit ridiculous, however. The Wildcats took advantage of the Cyclones early and often and used a wide variety of backs, tight ends and wide receivers to build a 60-19 victory.

De Soto was near perfect in week one and now looks to take its act on the road
September 7, 2006
Even De Soto coach Brad Scott was quick to admit it. As fabulous as his football team played in its season opening 60-19 route of Ottawa, that monstrous score came thanks to at least a little bit of luck. The Cats converted a flurry of Cyclone mistakes into points, time and time again striking with big plays and prying the ball loose for another quick offensive drive with a big hit. It quickly added up to too much and the Ottawa players looked like they were ready to get back on the bus at the end of the first quarter.
Volleyball starts last, but not least
The last team to start play, De Soto got the season started right
September 7, 2006
The action in De Soto’s season-opening volleyball tournament ranged from exciting and tense to uneventful and foregone. It all amounted to a 3-0 record, however. De Soto powered its way through the home quadrangular, easily besting Maranatha and Bishop Seabury Academy and handling Atchison in two tight games.
