— Junior Tanner Tripp led all scorers with 25 points, including five 3-pointers, and Mill Valley handed Tonganoxie a 51-28 loss on Tuesday.

The Jaguars (12-3) started out hot on offense, jumping out to an 8-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The Chieftains (10-5) responded with a 6-2 burst of their own, but Mill Valley took a 13-6 lead at the end of the period. Tripp and company extended their advantage to 23-9 with 3:48 left until half, but Tonganoxie scored the final six points of the quarter to get within single digits.

Several of the Jaguars' first half points were a product of THS mishaps, as the Chieftains committed 11 turnovers before intermission.

Any thoughts of a comeback were quickly erased when MVHS opened the third quarter on a 10-2 run. That gave the Jaguars a 16-point cushion, and the Chieftains didn't have an answer. The deficit reached as many as 25 in the fourth quarter as MVHS cruised to victory.

Junior Stephanie Lichtenauer joined Tripp in double figures with 14 points, while sophomore Emma Stilgenbauer led the Chieftains with eight.

The win was the Jaguars' second in as many games against THS. The teams met Dec. 13 in Shawnee and MVHS took a 45-28 decision. Both teams will be back in action on Friday. The Jaguars will travel to Bonner Springs, while THS will play host to Bishop Ward.
