THS earns all-league accolades

June 8, 2005

Plenty of Tonganoxie names appeared on this year's Kaw Valley League softball and baseball all-league teams.

Tonganoxie landed four players on the softball team, while two baseball players earned all-league honors.

Tonganoxie senior Laura Jeannin was the lone first-team selection for the Tonganoxie High School softball team. She earned the honor as an outfielder, joining Mill Valley's Carleigh Berry and Santa Fe Trail's Brooke Pryor.

On the second team, Addie Heim, who also was a senior, was named to the infield team. Heim played at first base for the Chieftains.

Tonganoxie's remaining selections were underclassmen. Freshman Lindsey Himpel earned second-team honors as a designated hitter/utility player. Himpel also gained honorable mention recognition for the Chieftains as an outfielder. She played center field for the Chieftains, who went 10-11 on the season.

Amie Riddle was Tonganoxie's fourth selection. Riddle was Tonganoxie's No. 1 pitcher in the spring.

On the all-league baseball list, Kirk Rodell earned a first-team selection. The centerfielder joined Bishop Ward's Jake Kraft and Perry-Lecompton's Drew Tucker as first-team selections.

John Volk, another senior on this year's Tonganoxie squad, was named to the second team as a pitcher, joining Lansing's Cody Mohan for the honor.

The Chieftains went 4-17 this season. Tonganoxie ended the season with a heartbreaking loss to Eudora in the regional semifinals.

The THS softball team also ended its season in the regional quarterfinals. Tonganoxie fell to Perry-Lecompton.
