Big weekend of high school sports ahead
There's plenty of high school sports going on tonight and tomorrow as all three Renton-area high schools have teams competing in post-season events this weekend.
Things get started tonight, Friday with a handful of boys and girls basketball games that will decide seeding heading into next weekend's district tournament.
The Lindbergh boys team secured the fifth seed in next week's 2A tourney with a 76-71 win over Steilacoom Thursday night, after dropping their opening-round game to Clover Park 61-58 on Tuesday.
The Renton Indians defeated first-seeded Sumner on Tuesday, but fell to Fife 51-48 Thursday night and will play Clover Park at 5:54 p.m. tonight at Renton High School. Both schools will advance to the District tournament.
The Hazen Highlanders also play tonight, welcoming Lakes to Hazen High School at 5:45 p.m. The winner will advance to districts, the loser's season is over.
The Hazen and Renton girls basketball teams are also still alive and will both play tonight at home following the boys games.
Renton will take on Franklin Pierce at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The winner will finish in third, the loser in fourth with both teams moving on to the district tournament.
Hazen plays Lakes at 7:30 with the winner moving on and the loser going home.
Also in the area this weekend, the boys 2A and 3A district swimming championships will take place Saturday at the Hazen pool. Preliminary heats are scheduled for today, Friday.
Wrestlers from Hazen, Lindbergh and Renton are also competing in the postseason this weekend, though not locally. Renton and Lindbergh will both compete in the 2A regional tournament at Hockinson while Hazen competes in the 3A meet in Sammamish.
