Showing character and competitiveness can stand side-by-side, the Enumclaw High winter sports programs were twice honored by the South Puget Sound League.
As an entire program, EHS was notified last week the Hornets won the Sportsmanship Award for the winter season. On top of that, when all regular-season results were tallied, Enumclaw also had claimed the all-sports championship.
The all-sports title was based on how teams placed in five sports – boys basketball, girls basketball, gymnastics, swim and dive, and boys wrestling. In the eight-team Olympic Division, a team received eight points for placing first, seven points for finishing second and so on.
At EHS, the boys swim and dive team placed first, boys basketball was second, boys wrestling tied for second, girls basketball tied for third and the gymnastics team was fifth.
The winter season brought an encore performance for Enumclaw High. The school’s fall athletes also captured the all-sports title.
