EHS water polo begins state play Wednesday

The Enumclaw High boys water polo team was awarded the No. 7 seed into the state tournament, to be contested this week.

The Hornets will play two games tonight, Wednesday, the first at 5:20 against the host Lancers. The nightcap is set for 7:40 against defending state champion Bellevue.

Those teams make up one of the four three-team groups in the state field of a dozen squads. Two of the three will advance to quarterfinal action, set for Friday at Curtis High in University Place. The tourney wraps up Saturday, also at Curtis High.

In a final tune-up before the state water polo tournament, the Enumclaw High crew took on Bellevue Thursday night in a nonleague match.

The Hornets fell 14-9 to the Eastside squad.

EHS was led in scoring by Bennon VanHoof, who tallied five goals. Adding to the total were Thomas Petersen, Riley Sexton, Mason Culp and Brandon Butler with one each.
