Softball team opens with Kaw Valley against Basehor
The Chieftain softball team is in the win column.
Tonganoxie defeated Basehor-Linwood, 6-2, Thursday at Field of Dreams northeast of Basehor.
THS picked up the victory before approaching bad weather forced cancellation of the second game.
The first game of each doubleheader against Kaw Valley teams counts as a league game, while the second is a nonconference game.
Therefore, the Chieftains are 1-0 overall and 1-0 in the KVL.
A makeup date hasn't been set for the second game against the Bobcats.
The Chieftains will be back in action Thursday on the road against Mill Valley.
The team will have its first home doubleheader Monday against Piper at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds.
