Enumclaw High gymnast Olivia Bannerot led the Hornets to the subdistrict crown, winning all events Saturday at Mount Rainier High School.

Enumclaw’s Victoria Hernandez finished second overall and Emily Berte took fourth, tying Bannerot for first place on the beam.

The Hornets took first with a team score of 171.075.

The Hornets team are on the path to take a third consecutive state team title. In 2011 – the first season for the program – the team took second at state.

The next stop is the regional tournament Saturday at Mount Rainier High.

At the subdistrict tournament Bannerot took the all-around title with a score of 37.850; she posted 9.625 in the vault, bars at 9.4, beam, 9.150 and floor at 9.675.

Last season, Bannerot won the gold in bars and two silvers in the floor and vault events. In 2012 she took second all around and in bars.

Hernandez took second on the bars at 9.3, third on the beam at 8.675, fourth in the floor, 9.350, fifth on the vault, 8.8 and second all around, 36.125.

Berte tied Bannerot for first on the beam with 9.150, was second in the vault at 8.9, second on the floor with 9.625, seventh on the bars, 7.6 and fourth all around at 35.275.

Maddison Ward was injured during her dismount on the bars and coach Ben Skipworth said it is not certain if she will be able to compete at the regional tournament.
