The Sumner girls are on a quest to take repeat as state champions and Saturday was a big step in the right directions.

Sumner beat Renton 10-0 at Franklin Pierce Saturday at the 2A District Tournament.

Renton was seldom able to get the ball across the midfield line. The Spartans scoring and shots on the goal came in waves.

Sumner will play Black Hills in the first round of state. The time and date have not been determined.

Going into the district tournament coach Robi Turley said of the season and looking ahead, “It’s tough being defending state champs. You have a target on your back and we also put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be successful. Our leading goal scorer is Kelsie Colman, senior, with 12 goals and eight assists. Our team had 12 shutouts defensively and is led by Alyssa Murray at sweeper, junior. Freshman Jordan Thompson has been a huge asset to our team that can and has played anywhere we need her. We are looking forward to the state playoffs and hoping to make a run at defending our title.”
