The Sumner High boys soccer team traveled 300 miles only to find the end of the road.

The Spartans had secured a spot in the Class 4A state tournament, entering the Sweet 16 as the No. 8 seed from the West Central/Southwest District tournament. With that, the team was handed a May 16 trip to Spokane and a date with the Central Valley Bears. Playing on the campus of Spokane Falls Community College, the Sumner squad came up short, losing 1-0.

State soccer tournaments feature a single-elimination format, meaning the Spartans’ 2017 campaign came to a close.

The season included a South Puget Sound League record of 11-3-2, good for second place. Including a split of two tournament games and the defeat in Spokane, the Spartans, under the direction of coach Peter Voiles, finished with a mark of 12-5-2.
