A few Tonganoxie teams have found reasons to celebrate this week.
The California Blue team, coached by Mark Elston, won the K-Ball boys tournament Monday in Linwood. California Blue defeated the Red team, coached by Doug Tate, 11-7, in the championship game. The Blues, who also won the regular season title, also defeated the Limes, 13-12, in the semifinals before winning the tournament Monday. The Lime team is coached by Dennis Hecht.

The Junior boys finished their tournament last night in Bonner Springs, but the games didn't finish before The Mirror's deadline. The California Blues, coached by Helen Newton, defeated Troy Erwin's Gold team, 8-7, in the semifinals, while Bonner Springs, the regular season champion, defeated the Tonganoxie Orange team, 11-1. Tonganoxie is coached by Steve Woolf.
In girls K-Ball action, the semifinals and finals were played Tuesday in Tonganoxie, but results didn't meet The Mirror's deadline. The winner of the Linwood-Bonner Springs game was set to play the winner of the Basehor-Tonganoxie Orange game.
