EHS VOLLEYBALL: Hornets ride momentum into district

Enumclaw High entered the subdistrict volleyball festival at Auburn Mountainview as the No. 3 seed from the SPSL 3A with a 7-3 mark. After making a statement at subdistricts by prevailing in three of its four matches, EHS gleaned the third seed into Friday’s West Central District show, also being staged at Auburn Mountainview. Using the momentum from its final regular season match, a 3-0 win at Bonney Lake, EHS hit the ground running at subdistricts. The Hornets’ first victim was Highline. EHS won in straight sets 25-13, 25-14, 25-9. Next up was Auburn Mountainview, which Enumclaw. EHS managed at least one set, falling 25-16, 25-7, 14-25, 25-8. After being sent to the loser’s bracket, Enumclaw encountered the same Bonney Lake contingent it throttled four days earlier. The ensuing confrontation went the cliff-hanging distance with EHS taking the match by winning 15-9 in the finale. Enumclaw faced Kennedy Catholic of the Seamount League in its fourth and final match of the afternoon. The Hornets didn’t waste any time dispatching the Lancers 25-18, 25-13 and 25-14. HayleeMae Dennis had 26 kills during Saturday’s four matches, as well as 32 digs and six service aces. Olivia Bannerot recorded 43 digs, Danielle Saltarelli booked 11 stuff blocks, Molly Colyer notched 20 kills and setters Hannah Morris and Katie Holland combined for 80 assists. “We were exhausted after playing 12 sets earlier in the day, but were also super-confident coming into that match with the Lancers,” coach Jackie Carel said. Enumclaw mixes it up with Wilson in its 3:30 p.m.
