Sports in Brief

November 29, 2000

Rec commission reschedules meeting
The Tonganoxie Recreation Commission has changed the date and location of this month's meeting

Instead of Dec. 7 at the Tonganoxie City Council Chambers, the meeting will be Dec. 6 at the Tonganoxie Public Library.

The starting time remains 7:30 p.m.

Eighth-grade girls dominate 2 in a row
Tonganoxie's eighth-grade basketball team headed into Thanksgiving break in style last week, cruising to two lop-sided victories.

On Nov. 20, the team beat Patton, 38-9, behind 10 points each from Addie Heim and Madison Weller.

But the team's defense made a big difference in the game.

Besides leading the team in scoring, Heim and Weller took turns shutting down Patton's 6-1 center. They held her to only two points.

The Warriors also had 11 assists and 37 rebounds.

Courtney Schwegler and Heather Deaver grabbed eight boards apiece.

On Nov. 21, Tonganoxie beat Perry-Lecompton, 37-14, behind a combined 26 points from Heim and Weller.

Heim had a double double with her 16 points and 11 of the team's 31 rebounds.

The Warriors had 30 steals in the game. Weller had nine, and Schwegler and Jessica Bogard had seven each.

The team's next game is 4 p.m. Thursday at Piper.

Seventh-grade team coasts into holidays
Tonganoxie's seventh-grade basketball team made a strong showing to wrap up the pre-Thanksgiving season.

The A-team won both of its games last week, beating Patton 22-19 on Nov. 20 and Perry-Lecompton 37-25 on Nov. 21.

The B-team was edged by Perry-Lecompton, 22-19, on Nov. 21.

Coach Phil Jeannin said both teams had been playing well, which he credited to improved passing. After last week's games, the B-team is 5-4 and the A-team is 6-2.

"The girls are playing such a good team game right now," Jeannin said. "We've been averaging about eight assists a game, which means we're making the extra pass."

This season, the main two scorers for the Warriors have been Amanda Lenon and Kelly Stauch.

In last week's games, Lenon had 22 points and Stauch had 12 points and nine steals.

Jeannin said the team's defense was lead by Tori King's and Kalie Hileman's tough play.

Maggie Gratny has been the team's leader inside. She grabbed five against Perry-Lecompton to go with her four points.

Jeannin also said he was impressed by the play of the team's bench.

Sarah Hartshorn, Victoria Brosseit and Paige Robinson have all provided "sparkling play," Jeannin said.

The team's next game is 4 p.m. Thursday vs. Piper.
