Tonganoxie dance team performs tonight at state

March 8, 2006

Tonganoxie still will be represented this week at the Class 4A state basketball tournament this week in Salina.

Although the Tonganoxie High girls basketball team didn't advance to the tournament again this season, another THS squad will be there.

The Chieftain Stars, the THS dance team, will perform at halftime of the Goodland-Andover Central girls game today at the Bicentennial Center.

The game will tip off about 8:15 p.m.

First-year coach Pam Lamb said tonight's performance will be the "highlight of the year."

"They're very excited," Lamb said. "Of course, they were hoping the girls were able to play that day, too."

To perform at state, dance teams had to apply after Jan. 1 by submitting a half-page resume explaining why the squad should be selected to perform at the tournament, Lamb said.
