Whitledge named to All-KVL team
Hall, Jeannin receive honorable mention
When the Kaw Valley League’s girls basketball coaches selected their all-league squad, just one Tonganoxie High player was chosen — and she was a freshman.
Chieftains forward Jenny Whitledge, a ninth-grader at THS, was one of 12 players named to the All-KVL first team.
In her first year of high school action, Whitledge led Tonganoxie with 14.2 points and 7.1 rebounds a game while hitting 55 percent of her shots from the field.
Two other Chieftains received honorable mention. Senior guards Lauren Hall and Andie Jeannin were among nine KVL players to earn that distinction.
Hall averaged 8.0 points a game and hit a team-best 40 three-pointers. Jeannin scored 6.6 per game and made 25 from long distance.
