Bonney Lake swimmers win one, lose one this week

The Panthers bested Clover Park on Tuesday, but fell to Auburn Mountainview on Thursday.

The Bonney Lake boys swim team won one and lost one this week as the team gets ready for the big league meet next week at Lakes High School.

The Panthers on Tuesday picked up a win against Clover Park, outscoring the  Warriors 134-23. According to coach Jay Paulson, Clover Park’s poll is “slow,” which usually indicates warmer water temperatures, and the meet did not result in too many best times, though Riley Miller swam a personal best in the 100 yard backstroke and Brice Roberts won his first diving competition of the year.

The Panthers took on Auburn Mountainview Thursday, falling 96-83 despite “lots of close races,” according to Paulson.

The Panthers swept the Lions in the 200 freestyle, with Ryan Engledow, Tyler Tangen and Skylar Livingston finishing first, second and third. Divers Scott Jackson, Gary Flygare and Roberts also swept their event.

Cameron Gehrke also picked up a best time on his way to winning the 200 individual medley while Josh Weaver swam personal bests in the 100 breaststroke and 100 butterfly, where he is just 0.8 seconds off a district-qualifying time as the team preps for leagues.

With all dual meets behind them, the Panthers finished this season with a 2-6 record.
