Sweet second period extends Cats’ season
May 17, 2007
De Soto soccer coach Darren Erpelding said it’ll take his team’s best game to survive another round in the Class 5A-1A regional tournament. The good news, he said, is that he knows their bestgame still looms within the group. The question: will it rear its head Thursday as the 11-6 Wildcats travel to take on a talented St. James squad?

For better or worse, at least these Wildcats didn’t incite any heart attacks. That doesn’t mean the De Soto golf team didn’t play good golf at Monday’s regional tournament, and it doesn’t mean some of the players didn’t come agonizingly close to breaking through to the state tournament.

You’re supposed to save your best stuff for the biggest stage. No need to remind the De Soto boys tennis team. Given the chance to shine, the Wildcats did, and in doing so sewed up the program’s best-ever season.

Improved Wildcats bow out in first round of regionals
May 17, 2007
The optimist would have little trouble finding positives to take from the De Soto softball team’s regional debut Monday in Basehor. Indeed the Wildcats hit as well as they have all season, scored with both power and creativity and had the region’s No. 2 seed, the powerful Basehor-Linwood Bobcats, flustered and frustrated.

Progress in Greensburg occurring ‘street by street’

GREENSBURG - Under a cloudy morning sky while members of my Air National Guard unit picked up debris last week around an elementary school in this ravaged city, I noticed a clock still ticking on a classroom wall. Amid the shattered windows, desks in disarray and missing roof, it served as a reminder that even in the face of disaster, the world doesn’t stop.

Missed chances doom DHS

Ugh. That about sums it up. The De Soto baseball team’s season-ending loss to Kansas City-Piper in the first round of the regional tournament was by no means all ugly. Some Cats pitched well. Some Cats hit well. Dustin Grimes did both, and both early and late the Wildcats appeared to have the No. 2 seed Pirates on the ropes.
