October 17, 2007
For the first time in school history, both the seventh and eighth grade Basehor-Linwood Middle School football teams went undefeated. “The future looks very bright for USD 458 football,” Basehor-Linwood head football coach Chad Harvey said. “This year was not special because we went undefeated, what made it special was the type of kids we had on the team. They bought in to the team aspect, bought in to what the coaches were preaching, bought in to what it meant to be a champion.” Both the seventh and eighth grade teams finished 7-0 on the season. The last time either team went undefeated was in 1993. “Very rarely does a coach have the opportunity to coach the quality of kids we had this year,” Harvey said. “They had loads of talent.”

O’Bryan started the tournament a little rocky on the first hole. She shot an eight, but bounced back to par the second hole. Following the par, she struggled on the next couple holes. The four-hole sequence continued throughout the tournament. O’Bryan had played in the state tournament last year and handled the prominence of state well.
