The Sumner High boys soccer team traveled 300 miles only to find the end of the road.

The Sumner High boys soccer team traveled 300 miles only to find the end of the road.

The Spartans had secured a spot in the Class 4A state tournament, entering the Sweet 16 as the No. 8 seed from the West Central/Southwest District tournament. With that, the team was handed a May 16 trip to Spokane and a date with the Central Valley Bears. Playing on the campus of Spokane Falls Community College, the Sumner squad came up short, losing 1-0.

State soccer tournaments feature a single-elimination format, meaning the Spartans’ 2017 campaign came to a close.

The season included a South Puget Sound League record of 11-3-2, good for second place. Including a split of two tournament games and the defeat in Spokane, the Spartans, under the direction of coach Peter Voiles, finished with a mark of 12-5-2.
