EHS VOLLEYBALL: Hornets’ dance card fills up

Enumclaw High volleyball coach Jackie Carel said she liked what she saw from her squad during its initial SPSL 3A contest at Decatur, as the Hornets downed the Gators 25-19, 25-8, 25-13.

“It was a real quick match and we controlled things the whole way against a talented and athletic Decatur High group in their gym,” Carel said. “I appreciate the way in which this unit supports one another. They mesh well as a crew and keep everything moving in a positive direction.”

While it was a team effort that overwhelmed Decatur, there were a few outstanding individual efforts. HayleeMae Dennis recorded eight kills, defensive specialist Olivia Bannerot came through with seven digs and middle hitter Danielle Saltarelli made a splash with four kills and three aces.

Enumclaw was looking to bump its record to 2-0 in league Monday when it hosted Auburn Mountainview; results arrived too late to include here. They host Lakes at 7:15 tonight, Wednesday, and Gig Harbor Thursday, before boarding a bus Saturday to compete in the 16-team Bellevue Invitational where EHS’s pool includes Garfield, Lindbergh and Kennedy.
