Renton boys advance to regionals | BOYS BASKETBALL

The Renton boys basketball team kept their season alive this weekend with a 62-50 win over Franklin Pierce to earn a spot in the regional tournament.

After dropping their first game to the upstart Sumner Spartans, the Indians battled to a 16-16 tie in the first quarter, but then pulled away in the second to take a 31-24 lead into the half.

Renton came out strong again in the third, increasing their lead to 48-33.

Franklin Pierce rallied in the fourth, outscoring the Indians in the final frame, but it wasn't enough as Renton earned their chance to keep playing in the regional tournament Feb. 23.

The win earned Renton the sixth and final spot from District 3. They will play River Ridge High School, from Lacey, Wash., at 6 p.m. Feb. 2 at Tumwater High School.
