#BonnerSports Roundup: Boys tennis prepares for regionals, girls to host WYCO meet
Braves get tuneup before regionals
Until now, the Bonner Springs No. 1 doubles team of Spencer Bush and Quinton Schneck had yet to taste defeat. In fact, the Braves hadn’t quite seen the adversity it met against St. James Academy on Monday.
The loss, which put the doubles team’s record at 16-2, came in a tiebreaker on a night of many close defeats. For the first time in coach Bill Scott’s memory, the Braves were shut out on varsity. St. James’ victory will likely cost the Braves a No. 1 seed at regionals. The Braves placed second at last week’s Leavenworth Invitational among a field of eight schools last week, while also earning duals victories against Sumner Academy and Lincoln Academy. Bush and Schneck won their side of the meet, overcoming what was the first set lost all season by Bonner Springs.
A final tune up before regionals took place on Wednesday against Shawnee Mission West. The Braves compete Thursday and Friday at Spring Hill in the 4A regional tournament.
BSHS to host WYCO girls swim meet
The Bonner Springs girls swim team will host the WYCO Championship meet at 4 p.m. on Thursday, an event that will also serve as the team’s senior night.
The Braves follow an April 26 performance in which they placed fifth at Turner High School with a total of 139 points. Madison Stumbough, Cassie Stock, Toni Stock and Elizabeth Barger began the evening with a second-place performance in the 200-yard medley relay. That same team also placed third in the 200-yard freestyle relay, where it was joined by the 10th place team of Lei’Onna Smith, Stephanie Rose, Scintilla Capalla and Akiko Capalla.
Cassie Stock led the way in individual events, beginning with her second-place finish in the 50-yard freestyle. She later set a personal best in the 100-yard backstroke, placing second. Toni Stock gave the Braves another second-place finish with her performance in the 100-yard butterfly.
