Chieftains win battle for first place against Chargers
THS sweeps Santa Fe Trail in softball
Tonganoxie swept perennial power Santa Fe Trail on Tuesday in Tonganoxie.
The first game of each doubleheader between Kaw Valley League foes counts toward the league standings, so THS remained undefeated in KVL play, while SFT suffered its second league loss of the season. The Chieftains remain in sole posession of first place. Tonganoxie now is 9-2 overall and 5-0 in the KVL.
THS won the first game, 5-3, and the second, 6-2.
Tonganoxie will play today at Basehor-Linwood in a continuation of a last Wednesday's game that was postponed because of darkness. The Chieftain will be on the road Thursday at Perry-Lecompton and then at home Tuesday for another pivotal game against Lansing, a team that also defeated SFT.
