Tonganoxie golfers 2nd at LCC
Three Tonganoxie High golfers finished in the top 10, helping their team to a second-place finish at the Leavenworth Country Club on Monday.
Colby Yates (76) was second by just one stroke, Justin Jacobs (80) took seventh and Mitch DeHoff (82) was 10th for the Chieftains, who finished with a score of 330, 11 strokes behind Topeka-Hayden at the Lansing tournament.
Coach Jared Jackson said it was a good day for THS at the 10-team tournament and was pleased to see Kody Campbell finish with a 92.
“He has really been working at his game and we are starting to see some lower scores,” Jackson said.
Tonganoxie doesn’t play again until Saturday, April 24 at Osawatomie, a 20-team tournament that Jackson said will provide the team its toughest challenge of the regular season.
“Hopefully we can continue to practice at a high level and be ready to compete,” he said.

THS individuals: 2. Colby Yates, 76; 7. Justin Jacobs, 80; 10. Mitch DeHoff, 82; Kody Campbell, 92; Tanner Hale, 94; Preston Putthoff, 107.
