Balanced Tongie boys rout Bonner

Baldwin boys fall to St. James, but Tonganoxie, BHS girls claim victories

February 11, 2009


Tonganoxie 83, Bonner Springs 62

Tonganoxie — Ten Chieftains played and 10 scored as Tonganoxie rolled over Bonner Springs.

Among Tonganoxie’s starting five, only point guard Jeremy Carlisle, who scored three points, didn’t reach double figures. Senior forward Jamie Everett led the way with 18, Keaton Schaffer had 17, Austin Smith had 14 points and 17 rebounds, and Jace Waters hit a pair of threes and finished with 10 points.

The Braves cut the THS lead to two with 4:14 to go in the third quarter, but Schaffer responded with a three-point play inside that sparked a 15-2 run to close the period.

Tonganoxie (9-6) then blew the game wide open with an 11-3 run to open the fourth quarter, getting six points from Everett and five from Schaffer — although two of Schaffer’s could have easily gone to Waters, who had an uncontested layup after a steal but unselfishly dished it to Schaffer for a transition basket.

Tonganoxie will play host to Santa Fe Trail on Friday. The game can be viewed on Sunflower Broadband channel 6 at 10:30 Friday night and at 11 a.m. Saturday.

St. James 56, Baldwin 35

Lenexa — A poor offensive second half doomed Baldwin.

Sophomore Justin Vander Tuig led Baldwin with 18 points. Jordan Bichelmeyer scored 14 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to help St. James win.

Silver Lake 63, Perry-Lecompton 59

Perry — Joel Gantz scored 12 points and Andy Bowman 11 for the Kaws.

Perry (9-6) will face Mill Valley on Friday.

Oskaloosa 57, Immaculata 46

Oskaloosa — Chase Tenpenny had 14 points, Adam Bowser added 11, and Adam Paouola had 10 for Oskaloosa.

McLouth 46, Troy 41

Troy — Cole Batman had 22 points to lead McLouth to its second victory.

The Bulldogs moved to 2-12, while Troy fell to 7-10.


Tonganoxie 55, Bonner Springs 39

Tonganoxie — After a four-game road swing that lasted two weeks, Tonganoxie returned home Tuesday and picked up a convincing victory over Bonner Springs.

Powered by 19 points from senior forward Roni Grizzle and 15 from senior point guard Chrissie Jeannin, the Chieftains (11-4) led the entire game.

Junior Andie Jeannin hit a pair of threes and scored eight points.

Lauren Hall hit Tonganoxie High’s only other three-pointer.

Chrissie Jeannin grabbed seven boards for THS.

And although Tongie’s Danielle Miller was held scoreless, she passed out four assists.

Four of Tonganoxie’s final five regular-season contests will be at home, including Friday’s game with Santa Fe Trail.

That game will tip off at 6 p.m.
