The Panthers track and field season began with a jamboree on Saturday. Bonney Lake boys and girls will travel to Enumclaw Thursday to face off against the Hornets at 3:30 p.m.


Last season, the team was SPSL 3A league champions.

This year, coach Andy Foster said the Panthers should do well again.

“I feel we will have good representation when it comes to the post season,” he said.

Foster has been coaching for more than 25 years, he said.

And he is entering his 10th season with the Panthers.

He said, not many seniors graduated last season and he feels Bonney Lake “will be able to put a full squad together in each event.”

Foster said his coaching approach is no different than last season.

“The ultimate goal is to get each athlete to reach the best performance each and every week,” he said.

He said the same is true for the meets against Sumner.

The Spartans now being the SPSL 3A league with Bonney Lake does not change the way it prepares, he said.


Coach Judy Revell said the Panthers currently have 46 athletes on the team.

She said Bonney Lake lost some “great seniors” from last year but the team has “many new quality athletes with a lot of potential.”

“I am excited to see how these athletes develop as a team and individually,” Revell said.

She said last season, the Panthers had five girls advance to districts and one advance to state.

Sam Boudreau competed at state and finished in eighth place in the shot put.
