EHS GIRLS BASKETBALL: Balanced attack puts Hornets in win column

The Enumclaw High girls made their way into the victory column the evening of Dec. 7, whipping Franklin Pierce 44-28 in nonleague basketball action.

It was the first win in three outings for the Hornets, who continue their nonleague schedule Friday by hosting Capital. Monday, the Hornet girls will host North Thurston. Both games begin at 7 p.m.

The team played one game earlier this week, hosting Stadium of Tacoma. Results came too late to be included here.

Dec. 7, Enumclaw did its damage early, sprinting to a 16-2 advantage after just eight minutes of play against the Cardinals, who complete in the Class 2A ranks. The Hornets held their own the rest of the way, managing a slight 11-10 advantage in the second period and struggling through a ragged third frame in which the teams combined for only six points.

EHS received scoring from nine players. Leading the balanced attack was Hannah Calvert, who scored 10 points. Julia Myers added nine points and Fallon Hall chipped in with eight.
