Tonganoxie's Senior Night on Oct. 9 went well for five THS volleyball players.
The Chieftains defeated Santa Fe Trail and De Soto after seniors Keri Walker, Aimee Eisman, Cassie Coffin, Nancy Milleret and Andrea Korb were escorted onto the THS gymnasium court by their parents and greeted at mid-court by teammates.
The seniors later spoke to family, supporters and coaches in a post-match ceremony.
The Chieftains, now 15-13, prepare for Sub-state on Saturday after matches Tuesday in Topeka against Topeka High, Free State and Blue Valley West. Those results will appear in next week's edition of The Mirror.
Tonganoxie travels to Lansing for this year's Sub-state. Other teams competing with THS and Lansing are Atchison, Basehor-Linwood, De Soto, Piper, Ward and Mill Valley. Pairings have not yet been determined.
Following are selected comments from the senior members of the squad.
