September 28, 2006
De Soto volleyball coach Junelle Woolery said she tells her team a loss is only a failure if you fail to learn anything from it. Despite starting the season 3-0, the Wildcats picked up plenty of losses in the early going, but only in the last seven days have those losses been defined as lessons, not failures. De Soto won four of its five matches in a pair of home competitions and after taking two of three Tuesday against Frontier League foes, the Cats are back above .500.
