EHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Chynoweth, Rockwood combine for 30

A Enumclaw boys basketball squad appears to be improving and heading in the right direction as it gets more experience.

After losing to Sumner, White River and Wilson, the Hornet cagers notched a victory Dec. 13, beating visiting Yelm 55-48.

In that nonleague meeting, Tony Chynoweth and Perry Rockwood combined for 30 of EHS’s points and Ryan Chynoweth hauled down 10 rebounds.

The teams took off like a herd of turtles in what was a yawn fest early on, as the score stood at 8-6 in favor of the home contingent. Shots began to find their marks in the second and third periods and the pace quickened.

Heading into the final frame things became interesting, as Enumclaw was out front 41-37 and managed to stave off a late rally by Yelm.

The South Puget Sound League 3A year won’t get under way for EHS until Jan. 3, when the Hornets host defending Class 3A state champion Lakes.

Enumclaw trekked to Capital and North Thurston and hosted undefeated 4A Mount Rainier Tuesday, with the results of those clashes coming too late to chronicle here.

Enumclaw will participate in the Kennedy Catholic Holiday Basketball Tournament Dec. 28-30.

The Hornets’ initial test will come against Squalicum, the second-ranked Class 2A team in the state, at 5:30 p.m. on the 28th. Thereafter, EHS’s opponents and game times will be determined based on how the Hornets fared.
