Bobcat players gave fans many memories on field last year
October 31, 2007
Basehor-Linwood soccer players couldn’t have played any harder, or with more heart had they played the quarter-final game over 100 times. The Bobcats lost to KC Christian, 3-2, but left nothing on the field. A Kansas City Christian soccer player scored a goal with less than 10 seconds to play in triple overtime. What an amazing game! Three overtimes, shots that nearly caused some fans to faint when just missing the target and too many close calls to count. Yet, this wasn’t just a team that played well in the state tournament.

Basehor-Linwood won its first playoff game in more than a decade by staving off a late rally by Eudora on Tuesday. The Bobcats led from their first possession of the game until the middle of the fourth quarter, but needed a late Tyler Miles touchdown run to win 13-8 and spoil the Cardinals (8-1) and state-ranked year. “Rankings mean nothing,” Bobcats coach Steve Hopkins said. “Our conference prepared us.”

Basehor-Linwood volleyball team won 20 matches for first time in 10 years
October 31, 2007
This year’s Basehor-Linwood volleyball team reached a major goal. After finishing with more than 20 wins for the first time in a decade, the team is now focused on the next big step—reaching state. “I think the girls should feel proud that they beat the 20 win mark, which hasn’t happened for awhile for volleyball at Basehor-Linwood High School,” Coach Tammy Zydlo said. “There were missed opportunities, wins we should have had, but the girls improved. Every year it will be our goal to win sub state and to go on to state. I want every team to want to be the team that goes to state. That has to be a goal— it’s what all teams work for.”

Basehor running teams preparing for next year
October 31, 2007
With another season of Basehor-Linwood cross country complete, it appears the boys and girls team’s identities for next year’s season will be divergent: the boys return a very solid nucleus with Tyler Henley and Ryan Lawless and appear ready to compete for a league title. The girls team will have a major identity change for the second straight year. After losing Amanda Vitt and Megan Tush to graduation this season, Emily Lackner and Caren Chellgren will now depart.
