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.
