Each season, cross country teams from Sumner and Bonney Lake stage an in-district, nonleague meet for bragging rights. This year’s showdown was contested the afternoon of Sept. 24, with the Spartans winning both the boys and girls races.

This year’s meet featured a condensed, two-mile course through the Tahaleh neighborhood. The booming development south of Bonney Lake has hosted the Spartan-Panther meet in recent years, but this might have been the final Tahaleh installment — things are getting a bit crowded.

On the girls side, Sumner’s Leah Duff took top honors, covering the distance in 13 minutes, 55 seconds. Also figuring in the Spartan scoring were Evamarie Penney, fourth overall with a time of 14:30; Madison Neubert, sixth, 14:41; Sarah Hammermaster, seventh, 14:43; and Elisha Gonzales, eighth, 14:51.

The Panthers took second and third place behind Zoey Diviney and Jasmin Ochoa, who clocked times of 14:03 and 14:28, respectively. The rest of the Bonney Lake scoring came from Faith Younce, fifth, 14:37; Payton Miller, ninth, 15:03; and Jessica Day, 10th, 15:05.

Sumner’s victory in the boys race was highlighted by Adam Sjolund’s first-place effort of 10:24. He was joined by Matthew Holme, third, 11:01; Hayden Fisher, sixth, 11:20; Jacob Perovich, seventh, 11:22; and Carson Taylor, eighth, 11:31.

Bonney Lake’s top runner, Cayan Dibble, finished second with a time of 10:46. Adding to the Panther total were teammates Nolan Gain, fourth, 11:08; Jacob Schlosser, fifth, 11:11; Colten Graham, 10th, 11:33; and Max Lea, 12th, 11:53.
