Sumner Spartans take the diamond; softball team opens with doubleheader

The baseball team may have been hit hard with graduation.

BASEBALL

Last year’s talented Sumner High baseball team said goodbye to a core group of seniors. Now, it will be a new crop of Spartans looking to lead the way.

Seniors expecting to make an impact include Grant Sherrod and Austin Grondahl and juniors Blake Tannehill, Mitchell Wolfe and Bryan Falk.

The Spartan squad, under the watchful eye of coach Megan McGee, will see live action for the first time on Monday. The season opener brings an in-district matchup against the Bonney Lake Panthers; game time is 4 p.m. on the Bonney Lake diamond.

This year’s squad will be looking for repeat success, coming off a 2018 campaign that included an 11-5 record in South Puget Sound League 4A play and an overall mark of 15-7.

SOFTBALL

This year’s softball campaign begins on an interesting note for the Sumner Spartans, who are slated to host a doubleheader this Saturday, March 9.

At noon, the Spartans take on Wenatchee High and, at 2 p.m., host Eastmont High of East Wenatchee.

This year’s Spartans will be looking to improve upon the record of a season ago, which showed an overall record of 10-11 that included a 6-10 mark in South Puget Sound League 4A play.
