White River unified soccer takes fifth in state tourney

The Hornets beat out Tahoma 6-5 to take first in district play, but fared less well in the state games.

For the first time in program history, White River High’s unified soccer team qualified for the state Special Olympics tournament.

Leading up to the state tourney, which was staged May 25 in Puyallup, a pair of White River teams competed in a district tournament in Enumclaw. White River’s Team No. 2 captured the silver medal but it was the No. 1 squad that won the tournament and qualified for state.

The district finale was a nail-biter, with White River eventually defeating Mount Tahoma 6-5 in overtime.

The state tourney didn’t go quite as well, as the Hornets dropped games against Washougal and Edmonds. Still, the team took fifth-place state honors.
