Seven Hornet baseball players – four of the White River variety and three plucked from the Enumclaw High roster – competed in a South Puget Sound League all-star doubleheader.
The contest, staged June 3 at Auburn Mountainview High School, had top players from the Class 3A division squaring off against those from the 2A ranks. The bigger-school boys trotted off with bragging rights, winning the opener 4-2 and taking the nightcap 5-0.
Players taking part in the all-star affair, with their season statistics, were:
• Cody Cloud (White River, second base): .295 batting average, nine runs batted in, .360 slugging percentage, 10 stolen bases.
• Ryan Kolisch (White River, pitcher/infielder): .472 batting average, 16 RBI, .490 slugging percentage and eight stolen bases. On the mound, he pitched 23 innings and built a 5-0 record with a 1.22 earned-run average, striking out 18 while walking six.

White River also was represented by skipper Mike Williams, part of the 2A coaching staff.
Enumclaw’s Rabb and Peterson played key roles during a rally midway through the second contest. Rabb opened an inning with a single up the middle and Peterson followed with a single to right. Rabb then scored on a base hit that advanced Peterson to third. Peterson then scored on a double steal, giving a 3A crew a comfortable lead. Also, Peterson put in three stellar innings on the mound, allowing no runs.
The White River duo of Kolisch and Henke combined to pitch six innings of shutout ball.
