The Tonganoxie High girls track team finished in the top three of nine events but couldn’t come up with enough points to keep pace with team champion Baldwin at the De Soto Invitational on Friday.

The Chieftains finished 44 points behind BHS despite personal records from Madi Yates in the javelin (115-3) and Andie Jeannin in the 800-meter run (2:26.01), as well as personal bests from both THS 400-meter dash competitors, Cristina Rubio (1:02.5) and Jenny Whitledge (1:03.05).

Tonganoxie also had three event winners at the DHS meet: Domino Grizzle placed first in the shot put and Whitledge won the 200-meter dash and the high jump.

THS boys 5th

Matt Briggs moves ahead of the pack while competing in the 1,600-meter run at the De Soto Invitational on Friday. Briggs finished third in the race.

Without a few of its top athletes, Tonganoxie’s boys ended up fifth in the team standings.

Jeremy Carlisle was held out of competition because of a violation of team rules and because Jake Willis was nursing a groin injury, neither the 4x100 or 4x400 relay teams competed.

Additionally, Dylan Scates, who competes in the long jump and triple jump, was out with a hamstring strain.

The Chieftains’ highest-scoring event was the discus, in which Stephen Wilson placed second and Bryson Hewins finished fourth.

Senior sprinter DJ Lindsay won the 400-meter dash with a time of 50.67. THS sophomore Dylan Jacobs was second in the high jump with a mark of 5-8.

Both Tonganoxie teams will travel Friday to Piper, in Kansas City, Kan.

However, Lindsay will compete at one of the area's top events, the Shawnee Mission North Relays, that same evening.
