THS basketball teams swept by Mill Valley

February 19, 2013

The Tonganoxie High girls had several opportunities to take the lead in the final minute, but couldn't get over the hump in a 34-31 loss Tuesday against Class 5A Mill Valley.

After falling behind by five midway through the fourth quarter, the Chieftains (12-7, 9-4 Kaw Valley League) battled back to within one point and forced a turnover with 40 seconds remaining. However, after an errant free throw and two missed opportunities in the paint, the Jaguars (18-1, 13-0) regained possession and hit two free throws on the other end. Tonganoxie's chance for a game-tying three-pointer was erased when it threw the ball out of bounds on its final possession.

Mill Valley's Tanner Tripp led all scorers with 18 points and Mackenzie Conklin added 10. Meanwhile, Emily Soetaert and Katelyn Waldeier paced THS with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Waldeier also pulled down 12 rebounds for a double-double.
