The Enumclaw High girls kept their season alive Wednesday night with a convincing 67-51 victory over Capital High. They are know two victories shy of earning a berth in the Class 3A state tournament.
Wednesday’s game at Mount Rainier High School marked the opening round of the West Central/Southwest bidistrict tournament. It was a loser-out affair.
With a tourney victory under their belts, the Hornet girls next play at 6 p.m. Friday at Auburn Riverside High School. They will take on the Mount Rainier Rams, who lost Wednesday night to a Prairie High team that is ranked No. 2 in the state. If they win Friday, they will play either Auburn Mountainview or Port Angeles in a winner-to-state game; that contest would be played at 8 p.m. March 6 at Clover Park High School.
Leading the offense during Wednesday’s victory were Mara Koplitz with 17 points, Heather Hitch with 14 and Jessalyn Clark with 12.Contact Enumclaw Courier Herald Senior Writer, Editor Kevin Hanson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-802-8205.
