Cyclones blow out Chieftains
The Tonganoxie High girls basketball team was no match for K.C. Ward on Tuesday night at the Paola Invitational.
The Chieftains trailed throughout and lost to the Cyclones, 68-35.
In the word of coach Randy Kraft, THS (0-2) was “slaughtered.”
“They were big and played very, very physical,” Kraft said of Ward.
“It was one of those games where we’re not the biggest team in the world and they were allowed to play physical.”
Freshman Jenny Whitledge led Tonganoxie with 20 points. Hannah Kemp had six and Andie Jeannin scored five.
The Chieftains will play in the seventh-place game of the tournament at 4 p.m. Friday in Paola.
