Golfers nab top places in JV meets
The Chieftains found themselves in a much happier place -- near the top of the team standings.
Led by Cody Sims with a 37 on a nine-hole course, THS placed second at a junior varsity meet last week.
Tonganoxie was tied for first at the end of the meet, but lost the tiebreaker because the Chieftains didn't have the better score from their No. 5 golfer.
At the Kaw Valley League junior varsity meet last week in Bonner Springs, Tonganoxie placed fourth out of nine schools. Cody Owsley was low man with 98.
"It's such a mental game to get on top of competition," THS coach Steve Harrell said. "To get those JV finishes really kind of helps our mindset about how competitive we can be."
THS again will be in action May 6 at Perry-Lecompton.
