This year's Tonganoxie High softball team features a senior class that will entirely be playing at the collegiate level when their high school careers conclude. Pictured, from bottom left, are Makenzie Sample (Fort Scott CC), Lauren Willson (Hutchinson CC), Delainey Fenoglio (Butler CC), Audrey Miller (Labette County CC) and Torrissa Hootman (Barton CC). All will play softball at the next level except for Willson, who will play volleyball for the Blue Dragons.

When your team has tallied four shutouts and outscored opponents 86-5, it’s a pretty good start to the season. Tonganoxie High softball entered Tuesday’s doubleheader at Lansing with a spotless 6-0 record. After sweeping Bishop Ward in the season opener, THS rolled Bonner Springs and Pleasant Ridge last week.
Stephanie Wittman’s Tonganoxie High softball team has made some exciting runs in recent years. Take this year’s senior class for instance. The group has been a part of three straight Class 4A Division I regional runner-up teams. Every year of the group’s high school career, the girls have been part of a team that has just missed out on a string of state appearances.
