Panther lacrosse and tennis start swinging | 2015 spring sports previews
The Lake Tapps Lacrosse Titans were urged by the Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association to break into school teams, coach Arron De Leon said.
He said many feared for lack of participation but the initial interest and support has been impressive, he said.
Bonney Lake’s boys team is made up of half veteran players and half newcomers, De Leon said.
There are no seniors on the team and De Leon said when the team returns next season, “they will be even more exciting to watch.”
De Leon was an assistant coach for the Lake Tapps Lacrosse club and an assistant for two years for a select team.
This is his first season as a head coach.
The boys start its season at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28 with a match against Auburn Riverside at Bonney Lake High School.
The girls tennis season starts Thursday with a 3:30 p.m. game against Auburn Riverside at home.
The Panthers finished last season with a 3-9 overall record.
