Chieftains get 2 seed for sub-state
THS volleyball matches up with DeSoto in quarterfinals
KSHSAA released sub-state volleyball tournament brackets on Wednesday morning and Tonganoxie High received a No. 2 seed for its Class 4A sub-state this Saturday at Eudora. The Chieftains (25-14) will face the No. 7 seed, Desoto (14-21), in a quarterfinal at 2 p.m.
Sumner Academy (21-9) got the tournament’s No. 1 seed and will play against Piper.
Should THS advance to the semifinals, it will face the winner of the match between No. 3 Eudora and No. 6 Atchison.
In the other first-round matchup, No. 4 Bishop Ward will face No. 5 Basehor-Linwood.
The Chieftains have defeated Basehor-Linwood, Bishop Ward, Eudora and Piper this season. They lost to DeSoto earlier this year and haven’t faced Atchison or Sumner.
Although Tonganoxie fell to DeSoto when the two teams previously squared off, the Chieftains have turned things around since then. THS has won 14 of its last 17 matches.
