The Sumner High girls fought the good fight on the basketball court last week, despite losing two games.

The Spartans dropped a decision to Peninsula on the road 61-45 Saturday.

Sumner fell behind 18-10 in the first frame, but the girls battled in the second period and outscored the Seahawks 12-9. Peninsula went on a 21-point run in the third to seal the game.

Leading the scoring digits for Sumner were Ashley Delany and Erika Olsen, each with 12 points.

The girls hosted Enumclaw Friday and lost 70-59.

The second quarter was the problem when the Hornets hit 25 points and the Spartans had just 11.

Olsen dropped in 17 to lead Sumner. Angie Wagar-Sanchez and Reagan Wright each put in 11.

Sumner hosted Clover Park Tuesday – scores were not available at press time – and travels for a 7 p.m. game Friday at Auburn Mountainview.
