The powerhouse Enumclaw High gymnastics squad topped a four-team field Wednesday night, scoring an impressive 173.55 team points.
Competing at Auburn Mountainview, the Hornets defeated the host Lions, Kentlake and Auburn Riverside.
In sweeping to the victory, EHS had the top four all-around performers. Olivia Bannerot was the class of the field, followed by Molly Mattheis, Michelle McKinlay and Madison Ward.
While taking the all-around crown, Bannerot won three of the four events. She was tops in the floor exercise with a 9.85, won the bars with an 8.15 and took the vault with a score of 9.3. Ward was second on the beam with a 9.12.
The Hornets, who were just a half-step away from a state Class 3A/2A title a season ago, had opened the year Nov. 30 with a four-team meet at Auburn Riverside. Competing without Bannerot, EHS placed second.
The team's next action comes Dec. 14 with a meet at Auburn High School.Contact Enumclaw Courier Herald Senior Writer, Editor Kevin Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-802-8205.
