Enumclaw Hornet volleyball squad battles for five-game win

After winning two games and then dropping two more, the Enumclaw High volleyball team escaped with a Friday night victory over Kentlake.

The hard-fought match featured plenty of long rallies and saw EHS winning the first two games 26-24 and 25-18. The Kentlake crew rallied to take the next two 25-19 and 25-22, setting the stage for a winner-take-all finale. The last game was again close, with the Hornets coming out on top 15-12.

Leading the way for Enumclaw were Barbie Becker, who registered 20 kills; Olivia Bannerot, who came up with 14 digs to go with 11 kills; Victoria Hernandez, 23 digs; and Gia Landis, who had a nice night with 12 digs, 18 assists and seven service aces.

With the victory, the EHS girls remained perfect on the season, improving their record to 5-0 overall.

“I was pleased with the girls’ determination and stamina,” coach Jackie Carel wrote in an email. “A lot was learned from (Friday’s) outing.”
