All-area boys track and field
Three De Soto High athletes were recently selected for the All-Area Boys Track and Field team. The Lawrence Journal-World sports staff honored Riley Day, Andre Linzy and Lucas Slater for their performances in 2007. Day finished his senior season with a ninth-place finish in the pole vault at the Class 4A state meet. Linzy, a junior, won second place at state in the long jump. Slater finished the two-mile run in 10 minutes, 36.05 seconds at state.
