Tonganoxie High’s boys cross country team is headed to state.

By finishing third at a Class 4A regional meet Saturday at Wyandotte County Park, the Chieftains qualified for the state meet this coming Saturday at Wamego.

THS cracked the top three (Baldwin won the regional and De Soto was second) by having three of its runners in the top 11 — Patrick Rachford was ninth, Dalton Harrington was 10th and Caleb Himpel was 11th.

The Tonganoxie girls finished sixth at the regional. Freshman Taylar Morgan had the best outing, finishing 33rd.

The Class 4A boys state championship race is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Wamego Country Club.
