Renton, Hazen and Lindbergh boys basketball seasons come to an end

The weekend started better than it finished for Renton-area high school basketball players as all three teams advanced to their district tournaments, but dropped their opening round games and watched their seasons end.

On Friday, Renton bested Clover Park at home 53-51 to advance to the 2A district tournament as the No. 5-seed. But On Monday, the Foster Bulldogs, who twice this year beat the Indians in league play, once again out-played Renton, beating the Indians 63-38 in a loser-out game at Foss High School.

Renton finished the seasons 11-13 overall, 8-6 in the Seamount.

Also on Friday, Lindbergh played their way to the 2A district No. 8 seed with a 76-71 win over Steilacoom, but fell 72-58 on Monday to the Sumner Spartans, bringing their season to an end.

Lindbergh finished the year with a 12-9 overall record and a 9-5 league record.

Playing in the 3A tournament, the Hazen Highlanders on Friday beat Lakes 57-55 to earn the No. 12-seed headed into the district tournament. HOwever, the No. 5 Lincoln Abes proved too much, beating the Highlanders 66-47 on Monday and bringing to an end and excellent season for the Hazen club.

Hazen finished the year 18-4 overall, 12-2 in the Seamount League.
