Leading the Star

Earlier this week I made mention of the good run that the University of Drake is enjoying in the NCAA men's soccer tournament and how they're doing it with the help of players from the Kansas City area. Today the KC Star jumped onto the band wagon as well posting their own article about the team and the KC player's success in the NCAA's. The team will be heading out tomorrow to make their way down to Chapel Hill to take on the Tar Heels.

One thing that both myself and the Star forgot to mention in our articles, though, is the fact that not only are the KC players good on the field (Garrett Webb was MVC player of the year, while Luke Gorczyca and Kevin Shrout also made the MVC first team, with Matt Kuhn and Calvin Clark making the second team), they are also good in the class room, with 3 of the KC players being named as Academic All Americans. Brian Wurst was named to the first team, with Kuhn on the second team and Clark on the third team.
