Bonney Lake High School Preview

By WSWA, 10/05/18, 1:45PM PDT


Bonney Lake is coming off another great season last year, scoring one of the highest point totals ever at the 3A State Tournament (165.5), only to be outdone by Mt. Spokane’s point total (179).  Bonney Lake has placed in the top 3 at state the past three seasons, and looks to continue that momentum heading into this season with a trio of returning state placers and rising stars.  

Bonney Lake’s focus this year will be in the present, not past glory, with another loaded schedule of tournaments that is sure to test them prior to post – season.  The Panthers are led by two of the best lightweights in the nation, Yusief Lillie and Brenden Chaowanapibool, both of which were double All-Americans last summer in Fargo, ND.  If you add in returning placer Cody Coffey, and seasoned veterans Orrin Brateng, Kyle Shaffer, Blake Koeller, Kelly Hickson, and Tommy Mendenhall, the Panthers have plenty of gas left in the tank.  Newcomer Kieron Lawes will make an immediate impact and turn some heads, he’s been on the USA Wrestling scene for several years and with his length and top ability, he could make a deep run come February.
