The Bonney Lake and Sumner boys swim teams each rang in 2013 with a big win Friday over visiting Kent-Meridian during a tri-meet at Sumner High School.

The Panthers bested the Royals 121-33 while the Spartans won 117-36.

“Our boys did very well against the Royals,” Bonney Lake Coach Jay Paulson said in an email.

Bonney Lake won every event against KM, taking first in second in most and even finishing first, second and third in four events.

It wasn’t all easy for the Panthers, however as exchange student Enrique Saenz was injured during the 100-yard freestyle when his goggles filled with water and he crashed into the wall during a turn, opening a small cut near his eye. Saenz did not realize he was hurt, however and finished the race, only noticing he was bleeding upon getting out of the pool. He required a few stitches, but otherwise seemed OK.

For Bonney Lake, Josh Weaver qualified for districts in the 200 individual medley, while Dom Leiggi missed qualifying for districts  in the 100 back by 0.3 seconds during his winning swim.

In their half of the meet, Sumner won every event except the 200 individual medley, though the Spartans were without their top two swimmers.

Cooper Dyson won both the 50 freestyle and the 100 butterfly, posting district qualifying times in both.

Several new swimmers also picked up some slack for Sumner, with Jordan Landes winning the 500 freestyle, Thomas Oliver winning the 100 backstroke, while Cameron Retzlaff won the 100 breaststroke.

Bonney Lake and Sumner face off head-to-head at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the Sumner pool.
