Wabaunsee’s Eli Oliver goes after a loose ball beyond the reach of Rock Creek’s Daegen Vinduska during a game earlier this season. On Monday, Wabaunsee galloped past Oskaloosa at home in the opening round of the Class 2A substate tournament.

ALMA — As was expected of the second seed in their substate bracket, the Wabaunsee boys took care of business in the first round, dispatching Oskaloosa 69-37. They advanced to face a familiar foe.

Thursday the Chargers will travel to St. Marys for a third match against the Bears, who were seeded third in the bracket.
