The Hornets began by traveling to Lakes Oct. 18 and knocking the Lancers out of their saddle 25-15, 25-13 and 25-8. The engagement marked the return of HayleeMae Dennis off the injured reserve list. She recorded 10 kills, while Julia Myers and Missy Sanders booked five kills apiece. Thursday, Enumclaw hosted Peninsula and dropped the initial set 25-23. This was when the competitive Dennis kicked into overdrive, leading the squad to 26-24, 25-17 and 27-25 wins. Dennis not only went on a killing spree with 31 bazooka shots, but additionally registered 20 digs. “Dennis was just too much on senior night, as she was virtually unstoppable,” coach Jackie Carel said. “Our girls just kept feeding Dennis the assists.”

“Dennis was just too much on senior night, as she was virtually unstoppable,” coach Jackie Carel said. “Our girls just kept feeding Dennis the assists.”

Hannah Morris and Katie Holland each had 23 assists during the course of that match.

“Balance like that is an exciting element to me as a coach, because it means that we are showing great teamwork and support by putting up numbers like that,” Carel said.

Dennis wasn’t the only senior to shine, as Colyer had nine kills.

No matter what happened Tuesday, EHS will finish in third place with either a 7-3 or a 6-4 mark.
