The Enumclaw fastpitch team is winding up for another season with the state title in the girls’ sights.
The team took second in 2014 and most of the power players are back between the lines for another season.
Junior Quinn Breidenbach, who was the 2014 South Puget League most valuable pitcher and selected to the all-area team, returns as the team’s No. 1 hurler.
Breidenbach is both a dominating pitcher and hitter. She hit .520 with a .867 slugging percentage, knocked three out of the park and drove in 46 RBIs.
Senior Chloe Young will secure the infield at shortstop. She was selected to the first-team all league last season and all area team.
She hit 489 with a .670 slugging percentage. Young hit one out with 33 RBIs.
Coach Mike Eckhart wrote in a email that Young, “in the last two years she has only had three errors in over 100 attempts.”
In center field is another first team selection, speedy senior Tammy Wilkening. She is a .400 hitter with .500 slugging percentage, one home run, 23 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.
Sophomore Madelyn Carlson will pitch and play infield. The first team all league selection in 2014 hit .430 and posted a 640 slugging with one home run, 27 RBIs.
As pitcher she struck out 63 with a .96 ERA.
The Hornets were league, subdistrict and regional champions in 2013 and 2014.
The teams’ record over the past two seasons was 50-6 with 516 runs scored and 136 allowed.
The team batting average was .409 with 521 strikeouts in 56 games.
