The Enumclaw High boys took their hoops show to the regional round of the 3A state tournament.

The Hornets lost to 77-67 to Stanwood in a battle from tipoff to the final buzzer.

Enumclaw kept drawing within striking distance, but couldn’t get over the hump to take a lead.

The Hornets finished the season with a 13-12 overall record, going 6-8 in the 3A South Puget Sound League.

When the boys returned from Christmas break, the team won six of 10 to close out the season and sneak into postseason play.

Once in the gate they tore off three wins to take second at the district tournament. Enumclaw beat Columbia River, Auburn Riverside and Peninsula to earn a berth in the regional tournament.

The Hornets’ only loss came against league nemesis Auburn Mountainview, winner of the league and district tournament. The Lions fell at the regional tournament Saturday to Rainier Beach 75-61.

Enumclaw improved its season record from 2015 when the team finished the season 5-9 in league and 7-13 overall and missed the postseason action.

Looking ahead the Hornets will lose some starters to graduation including Scotty Garvin and Josh Erickson, but return a young core of talented players including sophomore Heath Rainwater in the post.
