Girls preparing for Free State tournament
The Tonganoxie girls' team enjoyed its first winning streak of the season with a 57-47 victory at Perry-Lecompton on Saturday. The win improved the Chieftains to 3-7 going into the Lawrence-Free State Firebird Winter Classic on Thursday.
Andrea Korb led the Chieftains with 15 points.
"Perry beat us the first time at home so that gives us some momentum going into the rest of the season," THS coach Leslie Foster said.
Tonganoxie faces a tougher task at Free State. The Chieftains are the lone 4A representative the other seven are 5A and 6A.
"I think playing this level of competition will help us improve for playing at Sub-state," Foster said.
The Chieftains open with Hutchinson at 7 p.m. Thursday.
