Baseball teams from Enumclaw High, White River pound out victories in season openers

Plateau baseball squads from White River and Enumclaw took advantage of a rare calm and playable evening Friday, both Hornet contingents pounding out victories against a tandem of Class 4A opponents to come out of the gate fast on the fresh campaign.

In the first step of its trek to return to state in late May, Enumclaw hosted Federal Way at Osborne Field Friday night and on the wings of a big four-run fifth inning, clobbered the Eagles 8-4.

White River sojourned to Bethel High Brave territory Friday afternoon and behind great pitching from southpaw Hornet ace Trevor Lubking as well as sophomore Ryan Bird and senior Tim Kolisch, WRHS annihilated BHS 14-2 in its season opener.
