Enumclaw rackets ready to swing | Tennis Preview

The Hornets boys tennis team will bring a mix of athleticism and energy to the courts this season.

Enumclaw is starting with a young and not greatly experienced team, with one returning player.

Coach Adam Ihde said the inexperience will be balanced by the athleticism and hard work.

“We are a little rough around the edges,” Ihde said. “The cool thing is the new players are athletes and improving by leaps and bounds.”

Ihde said he spent the opening days of practice working on the basics and the players caught on quickly.

“There is not a lot of lifetime players on the team,” Ihde said. “But it is exciting to bring in new prospects.”

The first test for Hornets is 3:30 p.m. Sept. 6 at White River.
