EHS VOLLEYBALL: Hornets blitz past Stadium

Enumclaw’s volleyball crew had one engagement, beating skilled Stadium High of the Class 4A Narrows League to remain undefeated at 4-0.

Enumclaw’s volleyball crew had one engagement, beating skilled Stadium High of the Class 4A Narrows League to remain undefeated at 4-0.

The Hornets appeared ready for whatever came their way, winning 25-14, 20-25, 25-13 and 25-16.

Hornet junior hitter HayleeMae Dennis continued to impress in the early going as she rocketed four service aces and put together an 11-kill night.

Hitter Katina Ferguson and Gina Sanders were an inspiring senior presence for EHS, as Ferguson recorded eight kills and calm, cool and collected senior setter Sanders registered 28 assists.

“I really felt like Stadium had all the power in the world, but just had an off night,” EHS coach Jackie Carel said. “Their spikes, kills and blocks kept taking off over the back line and deflecting off to the side.”

Carel enjoyed the way her crew responded to the pressure provided by the larger, 4A school.

“Stadium tested us by serving as really decent competition. When we lost that second set, I think that kind of snapped us back to the task at hand,” she said.

“I saw some things, especially in our second set loss, that we still have to get fixed before our first league match.”

Decatur High visits Enumclaw Thursday for the Hornets’ initial South Puget Sound League 3A trial of the 2010 campaign.
