Chieftains headed to state after 1-0 win against Piper
Just one hit is all it took.
Melissa Pratt's homer that sailed just fair over the left-field fence broke a scoreless tie between Tonganoxie and PIper.
Tonganoxie (20-3) held on against Piper for the 1-0 victory Tuesday night at 3 and 2 Sports Complex in Shawnee. During their three regional games, the Chieftains shut out their opponents by a combined 12-0 score -- including a 9-0 win against Bonner Springs earlier Tuesday.
THS will begin its quest for a Class 4A state title May 26 at Bill Burke Sports Complex in Salina.
