The Eagles flew over the Mount Tahoma court Saturday taking a regional win into the second round of the 2A boys state basketball championship tournament.

Lindbergh beat Kingston 58-43 Saturday afternoon. The victory sent the team to the SunDome to play the No. 1 seed, Lynden, Wednesday.

The Eagles’ season ended after a 57-43 loss to Lynden.

In the regional round against Kingston the Eagles came out running and firing. The team took an early lead in the first quarter, and by the second with 5:36 remaining Lindbergh had a 25-13 lead.

Eagles captain and guard Kelton Williams scorched Kingston both outside and driving the lane. The senior has averaged 12.8 points per game this season amassing 257 points over 20 games.

Lindbergh’s other senior guard Justin Ellerbee also gave Kingston defenders fits. He has averaged 12.7 points per game and is a threat at any spot on the floor.

Xavier Dumas and Ronnie Davis worked the boards and added points for Renton that had the Indians up 36-25 by the third quarter.
