KVL honors Tonganoxie athletes

June 4, 2008

When the Kaw Valley League recently handed out postseason honors for spring sports, a number of Tonganoxie High athletes were named to its postseason all-league teams.


After a 14-9 season that ended with a regional final appearance, the Tonganoxie baseball team had six players receive KVL postseason honors.

Pitcher Logan Forbis, who had a 2.33 ERA in a team-leading 48 innings pitched, made the first team, as did catcher Tyler Lupton, who is just a sophomore.

A trio of Chieftains made the KVL second team. Blaize Oelschlaeger, who played a few positions for THS this season, made the team as a utility player. Infielder Jace Waters and outfielder Rob Schlicht were also named to the second team.

Second baseman Keith Wentz-Hall received honorable mention.


The Chieftains softball team was a one-run, extra-inning loss away from making state and four THS players were honored for their efforts this season.

Sisters Lauren and Lindsey Himpel both received first-team KVL honors for the Chieftains, junior Lauren as an outfielder and senior Lindsey as a utility player.

The Chieftains also had two second-teamers: catcher Melissa Pratt and first baseman Ashlee Lohman.
