Four members of the successful Enumclaw High girls relay teams were among the athletes honored June 30 at Safeco Field in Seattle.

The event was the Spring Sports State Champions Recognition Night, hosted by the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association prior to a game between the Seattle Mariners and the Baltimore Orioles.

Enumclaw High had five track athletes invited and four were able to attend. All helped make up the relay teams that claimed a pair of state championships during the Class 3A state track and field meet.

Attending the Seattle event were Taylor Tandecki, Josie Neu, Aleea Gwerder and Nikole Schroeder; invited but unable to attend was Taliah Olson.

At the state meet, Enumclaw was one of just two 3A schools to place teams in all three girls relay events. The results were impressive, as the Hornets claimed state championships in the 4×100 and 4×400 relay, earning runner-up status in the 4×200.

Tandecki, Neu, Schroeder and Olson took first in the 4×100 and second in the 4×200. In the 4×400, Gwerder joined Tandecki, Olson and Neu in a title performance.

During the final three weeks of the spring season, the EHS girls relay teams combined to set school records on nine occasions.
