Renton boys take top seed headed into district tournament | BOYS BASKETBALL
The Renton boys basketball team's magical season rolls after the Indians bested White River 65-60 on Saturday to win the 2A sub-district tournament and earn the No. 1 seed in the district tournament this weekend.
Jonathon Patterson set the pace for the Indians with 22 points to lead all scorers.
White River went out fast, outscoring Renton 17-10 in the first quarter, but the Indians did not panic and turned it around in the second to take a 32-30 lead into halftime.
The Hornets again came out string to open the second half, besting the Renton 17-14 in the third quarter, but the Indians refused to go down, winning the fourth quarter and the game.
The victory earns the 21-1 Indians the no. 1 seed in this weekend's district tournament. As the top seed, Renton gets an opening round bye and then on Friday faces the loser of the Bremerton-Sumner game.
From there it is only two more victories to the District Championship game at the ShoWare Center.
Renton is next scheduled to play at 7:45 pm. Friday at Lakes High School with the opponent to be determined.
