The regular season has ended for most sports in the South Puget Sound League’s 2A and 3A ranks, with postseason play in full swing.

Here’s where Enumclaw and White River stand.


Enumclaw: Despite entering postseason play as the 3A’s No. 4 seed, the Hornets won twice on Saturday to advance to the tourney semifinals. The Hornets were 7-3 winners over Capital High and slipped past Kennedy Catholic 7-6, assuring themselves of a berth in the Class 3 A state tournament.

Enumclaw will play twice Saturday at Auburn Riverside High, starting with a 1 p.m. game against Kelso.

White River: The West Central/SeaKing tournament was a short-lived experience for the Hornets, who dropped a pair of Saturday games at Russell Road Park in Kent.

White River’s season came to an end with an 11-2 loss to Sequim followed by a 10-2 defeat at the hands of Highline High.


Athletes from both the 3A and 2A ranks, both boys and girls will gather Thursday and Friday for a subdistrict meet at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner. All will be attempting to gain a berth in the following West Central/Southwest District meet.


Regular-season action concludes this week for both the SPSL 3A and 2A ranks, with district tournaments planned for May 20-21 at the Sprinker complex in Spanaway.


Enumclaw High wrapped up the East Division championship early and will carry the No. 1 seed into the Region II tournament.

The Hornets open tourney play May 20 at Curtis High in University Place against the No. 4 squad from the South Division.
