November 8, 2011 · 12:31 PM
Enumclaw High drew the toughest bracket in the opening round of Thursday’s state water polo tournament at Rogers High in Puyallup and it proved deadly for the Top 10-ranked Hornets.
Defending state champion Curtis devoured the Hornets 19-2 in the first game. The Hornets’ goals were delivered by junior Mason Culp and freshman Quinn Warner.
The Hornets took a short breather and jumped back in the water to face Roosevelt.
EHS watched an early lead evaporate into a five-point halftime deficit. EHS pulled within four after three quarters, but the Roughriders went wild, coasting to a 17-8 final.
Junior Bennon VanHoof scored six in the loss. Junior Will Cooper and the Hornets’ only senior Gabe Sales each added a goal.
Bellevue was crowned state champion Saturday at the King County Aquatic Center.
