Atchison — A monster night from Jenny Whitledge helped Tonganoxie to a girls high school basketball victory Friday at Atchison.

Tonganoxie senior Tayler Miles scored 12 points and pulled down nine rebounds off the bench.

THS will play host to Basehor-Linwood on Tuesday.

ACCHS 48, Oskaloosa 35

Abbey Bays led Perry with 15 points in the JCN tournament game.

Eudora (3-12) will play Friday at Louisburg.


Tonganoxie 85, Atchison 80, OT

Atchison — Tonganoxie never trailed in the second half, but had to go to overtime to survive Atchison.

AHS (1-11) chipped away at an 11-point THS lead in the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit to a one-possession difference in the final two minutes.

Tonganoxie (5-6) didn’t lead by more than three points again until junior sub Brennen Williams, who hadn’t set foot on the floor since the third quarter, entered the game, was immediately fouled with 28 seconds left in the extra period and drained two free throws to put his team ahead 84-80.

Chieftains senior Austin Vickers, a substitute swingman, hit a three from the right wing with 2:23 left in overtime to break an 80-all tie.

THS senior Dylan Scates, who also came off the bench, hit his first four shots in the first quarter and rode the hot start to a 22-point outing.

Junior center Dane Erickson scored three of his 21 points in OT and finished with seven rebounds.

Tonganoxie will play host to Basehor-Linwood on Tuesday.
