Tonganoxie High softball advances to regional championship

All of Tonganoxie’s four hits were singles, with Savannah Booker’s first-inning hit bringing in 2 runs.
Kylie Vandervoort had a hit and Santi Garcia had the other two in the victory. Sage Isaacs also reached on a base on balls.
Isaacs had a strong game on the mound. She gave up 1 run on 6 hits while also fanning 5 batters.
