Panther coach Andrew Sage said the pair of league losses so early in the year may have put Bonney Lake in a tough spot, but he’s confident his girls can rally.
The inaugural Roundball at the Rock charity basketball event for the Rotary First Harvest, staged at Bonney Lake High School Saturday, is officially in the archives. With the help of about 100 people – including, fans, coaches, players, volunteers and financial supporters – the program went off without a hitch and was a success.
This year the Sumner High team will be resting their hopes on a good many underclassmen vying and trying to make their mark in the always competitive South Puget Sound League 2A, with a few experienced joggers and jumpers sprinkled in as well.
Buckley City Council members heard from Jeff and Alice Money, who live near the haunted house on A Street.

Having recently won the regional Gold Gloves competition, Guillermo “Memo” Maldonado – a talented 165-pound amateur boxer who graduated from Enumclaw High School in 2004 – has decided to go professional next month.
Buckley is a sleepy hamlet of approximately 5,000 citizens, of which I am one. It straddles state Route 410 and one rarely has to worry about police intervention unless you’re speeding past the cemetery in the wee hours of the morning or, even worse, driving while impaired.
The Enumclaw High boys basketball team didn’t do itself any favors by dropping its final two regular season contests to Bonney Lake earning the No. 5 seed from the South Puget Sound League 3A with a league record of 3-7.
Half of the games the White River boys basketball squad had lost this season were to South Puget Sound League 2A rival Sumner High.
So, when the Hornets finally managed to defeat the Spartans 49-42 in a subdistrict seeding contest Saturday evening at Foster High, it pushed their overall record to 18-4. No White River boys basketball team has won that many games, before postseason play, since the cage crew that went to the state tournament in the mid-1990s.
