Hornets reschedule meet with Sumner for Jan. 6
The Enumclaw High boys swim team was able to get its South Puget Sound League 3A meet in Dec. 16 against Auburn Mountainview and the Hornets came away with a 107-63 victory.
The win gave the Hornets a 1-0 league record as they sit idle until Jan. 6 when they host Sumner. The Spartans and Hornets were scheduled to tangle Thursday, but school cancellations and poor weather prevented that from happening. The Jan. 6 meet is the rematch.
