Cats hope fired up defense keeps team perfect
September 14, 2006
It’s the kind of tradition the 2006 De Soto Wildcats hope all the alumni and fans that turn out for Friday’s homecoming game recognize, and it’s the kind of tradition the Cats hope to display in full force as they showdown against Anderson County. When asked to define De Soto football, few of the Wildcats who have played or coached under current head Cat Brad Scott fail to start by mentioning defense.

Terrorists can’t strike freedoms of Americans
September 14, 2006
To paraphrase White House press secretary Tony Snow’s phrase when asked to comment when combat deaths in Iraq exceeded 2,500, the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is a number. (Clearly some numbers are much more useful to administration and its foes than others.)

Boys cross country team keeps up the pace
September 14, 2006
Quickly doing the cross country math, De Soto coach Chris McAfee said he knew things hadn’t gone well, an assessment that at first told him his eyes had not betrayed him in deciding the boys cross country team had not had a good day. A week after knocking off perennial superpower Baldwin to open the season, things didn’t look so good as the team ran in Wamego. In the end, it all made De Soto’s second-straight victory all the more shocking.
Safeties spark shutout win over KC Sumner
September 14, 2006
De Soto and Sumner combined to generate reels worth of highlights and score 103 points in the first week of the season. Sure enough, there were plenty of highlights when the two 1-0 teams matched Thursday night at Art Lawrence Stadium in Kansas City, Kan.

Cats stumble against Christian
September 14, 2006
Things can’t go sour much quicker than they did for the De Soto soccer team. After weathering the storm that was the defending Class 4A-1A state champions, Kansas City Christian, De Soto looked to be in good shape, down only 1-0 with less than five minutes before halftime.
Cats cool after season’s hot start
September 14, 2006
The good news — and the bad news — is that the De Soto volleyball team can point at itself to explain a disappointing showing at a weekend tournament in Lansing and a 1-2 record at a Central Heights quadrangular. It’s bad news that the Cats followed up their 3-0 start to the season with a 1-6 week. But De Soto coach Junelle Woolery said it’s good news that De Soto didn’t often get out-played.
