The Bonney Lake Panther swim team went up against a tough Enumclaw team on Thursday and the powerful Hornets proved to be too much for them, besting the Panthers 139-47.

There was some good news for Bonney Lake, however, as Dom Leiggi won the 50-yard freestyle for the Panthers, despite what coach Jay paulsen characterized as a “terrible start,” and Josh Weaver won the 100 breaststroke.

Additionally, Cameron Gehrke qualified for the district meet in the 200 individual medley and just missed qualifying in the 100 butterfly by about a half-second.

The 400-yard freestyle relay team also just missed qualifying for districts by 0.08 seconds and Paulsen is sure they will get it in the team;s next meet.

Paulsen said his team is dealing with illness and a few academic issues at the moment, but he has been impressed with the way new team members have “stepped up,” including Skylar Livingston, Enrique Saenez, Kyle Jones and Ryan McGraw.

The Panthers next meet is Tuesday against Decatur at the Sumner pool.
