Northeast Johnson County morning roundup


Shannon_MCGin-KUSM East grad pulls in huge grab for Jayhawks softball team. SM East graduate Shannon McGinley drew plenty of attention earlier this month when she tracked down a would-be home-run ball in left field as her Jayhawks team took on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

McGinley is batting .360 for the Jayhawks through 26 games, of which the team has dropped just two. (Her sister and fellow SM East graduate Erin is a freshman on the team this year who has seen some spot action pinch running).

Check out the video of Shannon’s catch below:

Donors help replace Prairie Village church’s dying organ. Lutheran Church of the Resurrection last week had a brand new Rodgers model 588 organ installed to replace the church’s previous organ, which failed irreparably this past fall. The new organ cost approximately $50,000, and was funded by two members of the congregation. [Organ music returns to Lutheran church in Prairie Village — Kansas City Star]
