EHS VOLLEYBALL: Enumclaw opens with victories

Led by its strong core of experienced players and senior size, Enumclaw High’s volleyball squad defeated both White River and Mount Rainier in the minimum number of games.

The Hornets’ whipped host White River 25-16, 25-20 and 25-21 Sept. 7, then beat the visiting Rams 25-9, 25-15 and 25-8 Thursday.

Junior outside hitter HayleeMae Dennis crushed 24 kills in the two matches and 6-foot senior spires Richelle Carel and Katina Ferguson had eight kills and a dozen kills, respectively, in the White River and Mount Rainier contests. Senior setter Gina Sanders contributed 25 assists against White River and 30 against Mount Rainier.

After making what coach Jackie Carel called a worthwhile trip to Yakima’s Sundome for a Saturday volleyball festival, she added this week’s attention will be focused on Enumclaw’s nonleague trial Thursday against Tacoma’s Stadium.

Enumclaw’s initial South Puget Sound League 3A tilt will be Sept. 23 when the Hornets host Decatur.
