The Tonganoxie High girls basketball team rallied from a 16-point second-half deficit for a 46-44 victory at Santa Fe Trail on Friday night.

After the Chargers’ Kate Badger scored a layup to give SFTHS its biggest lead of the game in the third quarter, the Chieftains (9-3) went on an 8-0 run to close the third quarter with a lay-in by Roni Grizzle, three free throws from Andie Jeannin, one freebie from Grizzle and a jumper from Haley Smith in the final seconds of the period.

Santa Fe Trail and Tonganoxie matched each other score for score the first few minutes of the fourth quarter — two Grizzle free throws were countered with a Shara Luther bucket and a three-pointer from THS guard Lauren Hall was answered with a basket from Cassie Pryor — before senior THS point guard Chrissie Jeannin went on a personal 8-0 run and gave her team a 41-40 lead with 4:36 remaining.
