It’s time to paint the town red (and white). Homecoming week is here at Tonganoxie High School, as festivities start Monday with Denim Day. Students were wore denim to the max during the first day of homecoming. Tuesday was Tourist Day. Students were encouraged to act like tourists in another city, state or country. Today’s theme is Greek Day. Students are to dress with a college state of mind, as it is Greek Day. Students can dress as though they are in a fraternity or sorority, for instance.

Energy is a buzz word for Tonganoxie High volleyball. Seniors on this year’s squad talk about it. Coach Chrissie Jeannin talks about it. It’s the team’s strength, they say. It’s also a weakness when the team isn’t consistent with said energy. Take Thursday’s home match against Louisburg (17-10). Tonganoxie came out swinging in the first set before falling 25-18. The Wildcats then dominated in the second set, 25-8. Jeannin was proud of how the team responded and the energy it brought in that final set, another 25-18 decision, as LHS swept the match. “How they played in that third set is how we should play every set,” Jeannin said. “When they play like that, they compete with teams.”
