Tonganoxie boys to host sub-state opener
THS girls will play at Sumner
The Class 4A Piper sub-state basketball brackets were released Wednesday morning and Tonganoxie High’s boys will get to host a first-round game.
As expected, the THS boys will play Jeff West. The Chieftains and Tigers both had eight wins, but JWHS had one more loss, which gave Tonganoxie the No. 4 seed and a 7 p.m. Monday home game to open the postseason.
The THS girls will have to play their first-round game on the road as the No. 6 seed in their bracket. At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, the Chieftains will play at No. 3 Sumner Academy, in Kansas City, Kan.
Should the Tonganoxie boys win against Jeff West, they would most likely face No. 1 seed Sumner Academy in the semifinals. Sumner plays host to one-win Atchison in the first round.
If the THS girls are able to knock off Sumner on the road, they would face the winner of a first-round game between No. 2 seed Bonner Springs and No. 7 Piper.
The sub-state semifinals and finals will be played at Piper, in Kansas City, Kan. The semifinals in the boys bracket will be played Thursday and the girls will have their second-round games on Friday. Both the boys and girls finals will be Saturday.
