Tonganoxie High girls basketball coach Mitch Loomis didn’t anticipate the first round Monday’s Tonganoxie Invitational to play out the way it did. After all, Loomis saw his team rally from a 16-2 deficit Jan. 12 against state powerhouse Piper and actually take the lead in the third quarter, only to eventually fall by nine, 55-46, to one of the top teams in Class 5A.
