Riley Carel signs to play basketball at Seattle Pacific

Enumclaw High senior Riley Carel signed a letter of intent to attend Seattle Pacific University, men’s basketball coach Ryan Looney announced Wednesday.

Carel inked his letter in the EHS library with his family, Hornet teammates and coaches Phil Engebretsen and Rick Hofstrand at his side.

Carel anticipates suiting up this fall and participating in the 2010-11 season for the defending Great Northwest Athletic Conference champion Falcons.

A 6-foot-2 guard, Carel was the 2010 Washington state Class 3A co-Player of the Year. He averaged 12.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists to lead Enumclaw to a 27-1 record. The Hornets advanced to the state championship game, which they lost 51-50 to Union.

Carel had a double-double in the championship game with 11 points and 10 rebounds. A two-time South Puget Sound League 3A MVP, he was ranked as the state’s 10th best prep guard by NorthwestHoops.com.

“Riley is a winner. He and his team at Enumclaw High School had a tremendous season this year,” Looney said. “Riley understands what it means to compete and has been coached very well in that area. We feel like we just added a lot of toughness to our roster with the addition of Riley Carel.”
