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 Bonney Lake and Sumner stand.
Bonney Lake: After claiming the SPSL 3A regular-season title, the Panthers split a pair of district games Saturday at Auburn High. Bonney Lake opened with an 8-4 victory over host Auburn High, then fell 2-0 to Kelso.
The Panthers have a loser-out date at 4 p.m. today, Wednesday, against Hazen High at Tacoma’s Heidelberg Park. A victory would send Bonney Lake to a loser-out, winner-to-state game at 10 a.m. Saturday, again at Heidelberg Park.
Sumner: The Spartans, the No. 2 club from the SPSL 3A, split a pair of Saturday games in the West Central/Southwest tournament at Kelso. Sumner clobbered Shelton 16-7 before falling 9-4 to Columbia River.
Sumner plays a loser-out contest against Wilson High at 7 tonight, Wednesday, at Auburn High. A victory would send the Spartans to a 1 p.m. Saturday game at Tacoma’s Heidelberg Park; it is a loser-out, winner-to-state contest.
Sumner High is the only local school still playing, thanks to a third-place finish during the SPSL 3A regular season.
The Spartans open the West Central/Southwest District tournament at 5 p.m. Thursday with a loser-out game against North Thurston. The game will be played at Mount Tahoma High in Tacoma.
If Sumner wins, the next tourney game comes at 10 a.m. Saturday at Highline Memorial Stadium.
