EHS TENNIS: Hornets’ top doubles earn opening-round bye

Bedda Johnson and Gina Sanders will represent Enumclaw High at the girls district tennis tournament today, Wednesday, at Sprinker Recreation Center in Parkland.

The Hornet duo earned the No. 2 seed into the tournament after closing out the subdistrict tournament Saturday. As the No. 2 seed, they receive a first-round bye to open district play. A second-round win will send them to state May 27 and 28 in the Tri-Cities.

Alex Putman will serve as a district alternate for Enumclaw.

“Everyone played well,” coach Rick Carel said. “They’re young.”

The Hornets ran into stiff competition from Kennedy Catholic.
