Current, former Chieftains compete at Kansas Relays
Pistora takes 1st place in women’s javelin
Both current and former Tonganoxie High track athletes were in action this past weekend at the Kansas Relays in Lawrence.
The big winner from Tonganoxie at the annual Kansas University track meet was Ali Pistora, who throws the javelin at Kansas State. Pistora, a KSU senior, set a personal record and took first place in the women’s javelin event with a throw of 170-11.
Another former Chieftain, Wichita State freshman DJ Lindsay, ran at Memorial Stadium. Lindsay was part of the 4x400 relay team from WSU that finished sixth in the finals.
