ENUMCLAW

The Hornet girls split a pair of crossover contests – beating Mount Rainier and falling to Kentwood – and were slated for a West Central/Southwest District play-in game Tuesday at Graham-Kapowsin High School. It was a loser-out affair against Puyallup High. If EHS was victorious, the Hornet girls face Kentlake tonight, Wednesday, at Kentlake.

Enumclaw’s boys dropped their crossover tilt to Kennedy Catholic on Saturday. Now, the Hornets open West Central/Southwest District play against Skyview. The contest tips off at 7 p.m. Thursday in the EHS gym.

WHITE RIVER

As the No. 1 seed into the West Central District tournament, the White River girls have earned a first-round bye. The Hornets’ first contest comes at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Foss High in Tacoma. The opponent will be either Sequim or Lindbergh.

With a Saturday win, the Hornet girls would head to the district semifinals, playing Feb. 16 at Foss. A Saturday loss would bring a 7:45 p.m. game Feb. 15 at Stadium High.

The Hornet girls rolled through a pair of crossover contests, beating Eatonville and Franklin Pierce.

The Hornet boys open West Central District play with a 7:45 game tonight, Wednesday, against the Port Angeles Roughriders. The game will be played at Wilson High in Tacoma.

A win tonight sends the Hornet boys to a 7:45 Friday game at Wilson against Foss High. A loss tonight means White River wouldn’t play again until 7:45 Tuesday at Wilson High.

The Hornet boys split their crossover series, first defeating Lakes, they falling in overtime to Clover Park.

BONNEY LAKE

The Panther boys open West Central/Southwest District 3A play with a contest against Central Kitsap. Game time is 6 tonight, Wednesday, at North Thurston High School. The district tourney is a double-elimination format.

If the Panthers win tonight, they play Friday at Timberline High; a loss brings a game Friday again at North Thurston.

The Bonney Lake girls open district play Thursday with a 7:45 p.m. contest against Timberline High. The game takes place at North Thurston High School. With a victory, the Panther girls would next play at 1:45 p.m. Saturday at Olympia High School. A loss sends Bonney Lake to a game at 3:15 p.m. Saturday at Capital High School.

SUMNER

The Spartan boys finished the regular season and have packed away their uniforms for the season.

The same goes for the Sumner High girls.
