— Tonganoxie High’s wrestling team may have finished ninth in the team standings at the Kaw Valley League Tournament on Saturday, but one Chieftain went home a KVL champion.

Jeremie Maus, a 171-pound senior, went 3-0 Saturday at Basehor-Linwood to win his first league championship.

Maus pinned Bonner Springs’ Brian Callahan in the finals to get his third pinfall victory of the day.

The THS senior wasn’t the only Chieftain to secure a medal at the KVL tourney.
