Tonganoxie — Tonganoxie guard Andie Jeannin buried a jumper just inside the three-point line on the left wing with six seconds left to lead the Chieftains’ girls basketball team to a 45-44 victory against Santa Fe Trail on Friday.

The clutch jump shot was Jeannin’s fourth of the quarter. She scored 10 of Tonganoxie’s 15 fourth-quarter points.

Every time the Chargers took a lead, Jeannin and THS answered.

Cassie Pryor hit two free throws with 6:36 remaining to give SFTHS its second lead of the game, but Jeannin responded with a pull-up jumper.

Amanda Bixel regained the lead for SFTHS with a bucket, but the next time down the floor, junior THS guard Lauren Hall hit a three to take the lead back.

A Pryor free throw later gave the Chargers a 38-35 advantage, and Jeannin hit a three to tie it.

Pryor then hit two freebies with 3:36 to go to put the Chargers up two. However, Jeannin hit her fourth and final three with 2:37 remaining for a one-point Chieftains lead.

Bixel hit two free throws 16 seconds later to put the Chargers up one. After a Roni Grizzle bucket inside gave THS the lead once more, Bixel scored inside with 1:30 left, and SFTHS led, 44-43.

Pryor led Santa Fe Trail with 14 points, and Bixel added 13.

Jeannin scored a game-high 20 for Tonganoxie (12-4), and senior point guard Chrissie Jeannin had 11.

Tonganoxie will travel Tuesday to Lansing. Santa Fe Trail will head to Basehor-Linwood.

Tonganoxie 58, Santa Fe Trail 44

Tonganoxie — After a slow start, Tonganoxie opened the second quarter on a 10-0 run and cruised past Santa Fe Trail.

The Chieftains (10-6) trailed by a point after the first quarter, but sophomore point guard Jeremy Carlisle sparked a game-changing run with a steal and a layup to open the second. Inside baskets from Keaton Schaffer and Austin Smith followed, as did free throws from Smith, Brandon Yoder and Jamie Everett.

Santa Fe Trail didn’t get its first points of the second quarter until Corey Dahl hit a jumper with 2:28 to go in the half.

Tonganoxie was only up seven late in the third when Dahl scored a layup in transition, but the Chieftains closed the quarter on a 9-2 run that began when Carlisle hit a hanging layup. Yoder then hit two free throws before Anthony Perry also hit a pair for SFTHS. Schaffer later set up Yoder for a layup.

Schaffer got Tonganoxie’s final points of the third after he was fouled on a three-point attempt, and he drained all three charity shots.

Schaffer led all scorers with 23 points. Although no other Chieftains scored in double figures, all 10 players score for the second straight contest.

Perry led the Chargers with 13, and Dahl had 11.

SFTHS will travel Tuesday to Basehor-Linwood, and Tonganoxie will hit the road for a matchup at Lansing.
