Undefeated Enumclaw gymnasts head to postseason | Slideshow

The powerhouse Enumclaw High gymnastics squad completed an undefeated regular season Jan. 29 and now prepares for postseason competition.

That’s where the program has really shined. In its short, three-year history, the team started by taking second place at the state meet and followed that with state championships the past two seasons.

In the regular season’s final meet, EHS tallied 175.8 team points to get past Bonney Lake, 150.8, Sumner, 132.95, and Tahoma, 128.6. The Hornets hosted the meet at Peak Gymnastics.

Enumclaw’s Olivia Bannerot took all-around honors after winning the vault, bars, beam and floor exercise. Teammate Victoria Hernandez was second in the all-around, having placed second in the vault and bars, third in the floor exercise and fourth on the team. Emily Berte was third all-around after placing second on the beam and in the floor exercise, fourth in the vault and fifth on the bars.

With the regular season behind them, Enumclaw High gymnastics can focus on meets leading up the state championships.

Saturday brings a subdistrict meet at Mount Rainier High School, brining together schools from the Class 2A, 3A and 4A ranks. In the 3A ranks, where Enumclaw High competes, the top two teams, top three all-around performers and top seven in each event will keep their season alive.

Next up will be the Feb. 15 West Central District meet, also at Mount Rainier High. From that meet, top three teams and top four all-arounds will advance to state, along with the top 12 in each event.

The state meet is set for Feb. 21 and 22 in the Tacoma Dome exhibition hall.
