Even though the Chieftains rested a number of their wrestlers in preparation for Saturday’s Kaw Valley League Tournament, Tonganoxie High won its final dual of the season rather easily on Thursday at Perry-Lecompton.

Five THS grapplers won their matches and the team got four victories by forfeit as Tonganoxie won, 50-28.

Freshman Adam Thomas (103) won by pinfall, junior Justin Crotty (125) won, 16-7, sophomore Riley Banks (160) won by pinfall, as did junior Jeremie Maus (171) and freshman Jonas Myers won, 13-4.

Sophomore Tyler Hand (130) was pinned in his match and freshman Shane Starcher (152) lost, 10-1.

All other weight classes were open on one side or another. Notably, Tonganoxie didn’t wrestle anyone at 135, 140 or 145 — slots typically occupied by THS seniors Jon Harris, Matt Brock and Kevin Hamm. Also absent from action were Chieftains Jeremy Elliott and Steve Davis.

All will be back in the lineup on Saturday when THS competes at the KVL championships at Bonner Springs, beginning at 9 a.m.
