THS golf finishes 4th at Hayden Invitational; schedules change again for Chieftain baseball, soccer

April 19, 2017

Tonganoxie High girls soccer team got its first victory of the season with a 6-0 victory against Bishop Ward last week.

THS (1-4-1) was supposed to play Baldwin on Monday at home, but field conditions forced the postponement. A makeup has yet to be scheduled.

The Chieftains also played into overtime against Leavenworth last week, but eventually fell, 2-1.

Tonganoxie plays Bishop Ward again Friday, with varsity set to start at 4:30 p.m. and junior varsity at 6 p.m. at the THS soccer complex south of the west campus.

THS baseball

Tonganoxie was supposed to play at home Monday, but the doubleheader was moved to Jeff West because of poor field conditions at the Chieftains’ home field at the Leavenworth County Fairgrounds.

Tonganoxie played Tuesday at Basehor-Linwood and is back on the road this coming Tuesday at Piper.
