Tonganoxie High softball resembled a team eager to get on the field Monday after an unprecedented hiatus. THS hadn’t played a softball game in nearly two years and originally was supposed to play Turner on Thursday in Tonganoxie. But wet field conditions delayed that return to the diamond a bit longer. On Monday, the Chieftains were ready to go. Tonganoxie scored runs in every inning and breezed to a mercy rule-shortened 17-2 victory in four innings.
