Openness key
May 24, 2007
Lately I have had interest in the amount of kids having to drop out of school or failing school. In the past years, the number of failure to meet requirements and drop outs have skyrocketed.

Sky high!
May 24, 2007
The cool thing about track meets is they are a story all together, and dozens of stories set apart. Never was that more true than for the De Soto track team Friday as it traveled to Hoyt for the regional track meet at Royal Valley High School. The overall story was one of undeniable success — the Cats qualified 14 athletes for this weekend’s state meet at Wichita’s Cessna Stadium. It’s the small stories that really made the day glow, however.

Wildcats stumble, drop regional final 3-0
May 24, 2007
Maybe it would have felt different had the De Soto girls soccer team not been playing so well over two weeks. Maybe it would have felt different had they not already advanced further in the regional playoffs than ever before. Maybe it would have felt different had they not started Thursday’s season-ending loss to St. James Academy with a dazzling defensive showcase and a 0-0 tie at halftime. Maybe not, however.
