September 13, 2007
Fans and reserve players huddled in whatever clothing they could find — often the options were scarce as cars and trucks remained outfitted for summer and bar-be-ques, not the wind and the wet of a cool fall afternoon. Eudora soccer coach Gunar Harmon waved his arms wildly, however, doing nothing to shield himself from the pelting rain. He rocked back, arms outstretched in disbelief, then curled up to his forehead in frustration. Try as they might — and they tried repeatedly in the second half — the Cardinals weren’t going to win this one. Eudora fell in the rain and the muck 6-3 to Baldwin.

That’s because his instructor, Megan Whitebread, is one of several teachers within the district who loop or stay with their class for more than one year. “It’s a lot better because you know your teacher,” J.D. said.
