September 21, 2017
Tonganoxie High has won big and, as of late, rallied for victory on its way to an unbeaten season so far. All of that was tested Saturday when St. Thomas Aquinas came to town. The Overland Park private school, after all, is ranked in the Top 50 teams in the nation and Top 5 in the Midwest. The Saints also have a rich history. Tonganoxie has been no slouch over the years, but STA won eight straight Class 5A state titles from 2003-10. The program won another two titles with back-to-back championships in 2013 and 2014. THS, meanwhile, has one state championship match to its history’s credit. All of that didn’t matter on Saturday.
