The Panthers are in seventh place in the South Puget Sound League 3A after two meets.

Bonney Lake is 0-2 in conference play and overall.

The Panthers lost its first meet 134-48 to the Enumclaw Hornets.

And Bonney Lake lost 121-61 to the Peninsula Seahawks Thursday.

“Our Panther swimmers had a good meet against a very tough Peninsula team,” coach Jay Paulson said. “Although we didn’t win, our athletes swam with a competitive attitude and we had some great successes.”

The 200 free relay made up of Ryan Engledow, Skylar Livingston, Garrett Feroy and Dawson Swanbeck placed first with a district qualifying time.

Paulson said this was the first time Bonney Lake beat Peninsula in a relay.

Livingston also qualified for districts after finishing in second place in the 50 free.

Engledow added to his list of district qualified events, Paulson said, winning both the 200 and 400 free.

Two new swimmers, Paulson said, Max Kalamar and Noah Austin-Church continued to drop times and score varsity points.

Paulson added with the flu and other illnesses going around this time of year, a lot of the swimmers are struggling and some are even too sick to swim.

However, “many are giving it all they got and that is commendable,” he said.

The Panthers host the Auburn Mountainview Lions at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 18.

Scores can be found online at as soon as they become available.
