Rambunctious Imac gymnasium can’t stop THS from KVL sweep
Tonganoxie entered its Sept. 28 triangular at the hostile Immaculata gymnasium with a one-match losing streak.
The Chieftains left Leavenworth with a two-match winning streak.
Tonganoxie again got past Basehor-Linwood with a 2-0 win (25-13, 25-12), but also faced the hometown Raiders, who defeated perennial power Lansing the week before.
THS won in two games, but they were nail-biters. The Chieftains prevailed 25-23, 25-22.
"We'll always take a win at Imac," THS co-coach Brandon Parker said. "Imac's a tough place to play.
"Their students were yelling at us."
The victories kept Tonganoxie unbeaten in Kaw Valley League play at 5-0. The Chieftains now are 16-2 overall.
