The EHS senior, the daughter of Kirk and Dana Davenport, earned four varsity letters with the Hornet swim and dive team and three with the water polo squad.

She holds the Enumclaw High record in the 100-yard breaststroke. She was awarded the swim team’s 110 Percent Award and Most Inspirational Swimmer Award during her senior season and earned the Coaches Award as a sophomore. In water polo she earned all-league honorable mention as a junior.

She competes year-round with the local swim club, Rainier Foothills Swim Team, and works as a lifeguard at the Enumclaw Aquatic Center.

As a Running Start student, Davenport will graduate from Enumclaw High School in June with an associate’s degree from Green River Community College. She plans on studying nursing at Alderson-Broaddus College.

Overlooking the picturesque Tygart River Valley in Philippi, W.V., Alderson-Broaddus College has been providing a quality education for its students for 140 years.

VanHoof stays close, will swim at Pacific Lutheran

Enumclaw High School senior swimmer and water polo player Bennon VanHoof signed a national letter of intent to swim at Pacific Lutheran University last week.

VanHoof earned four varsity letters with the EHS swim and dive team and four more with the EHS water polo squad.

He holds the Enumclaw High School swimming record in the 100-yard breaststroke at 59.81 seconds. VanHoof initially broke the school breaststroke record as a freshman with a time of 1:01.78. He continued to break his own record each year, swimming 1:01.38 as a sophomore and 1:00.20 as a junior, before eclipsing the 1-minute barrier this year.

VanHoof earned the Coaches Award and the swim team’s Tin Man Award, given to those who swim a district-qualifying time in each event.

In water polo, VanHoof earned the Most Valuable Offensive Player Award as a junior and senior and was team captain both years. He also earned first-team all-league honors as a junior and senior and received all-state honorable mention following his senior season.

He has competed year-round with the local swim club, Rainier Foothills Swim Team, for 11 years, and works as a lifeguard at the Enumclaw Aquatic Center.

VanHoof will graduate from Enumclaw High School in June and plans on studying sociology at Pacific Lutheran University.

He is the son of Keith and Sandi VanHoof of Enumclaw.
