The Enumclaw High boys swim and dive team opened its season with a dominating victory over Bonney Lake, showing both the depth and strength of the squad.

Enumclaw beat Bonney Lake 134.5-48.5 and coach Jesse Nitz expects more of the same as the season progress.

“Although we are a small team we have a surprising amount of depth,” Nitz said. “Even those that are new to the sport are learning quickly and poised to make some serious contributions.”

Nitz said freshman Ethan Horan was one of the pleasant surprises with his “natural speed and feel for the water. He’s one of our top swimmers in every event.”

Other swimmers to watch include co-captain Mitchell Petellin, a senior specializing in sprints.

Bryce VanHoof, co-captain and senior, excels in the breaststroke and medley while junior Brandon Vick swims the distance events.

“The team as a whole has a great vibe,” Nitz said. “Everyone has been giving it their all in practice and are seeing the results already. This is one of those years that all the right guys are on the team at the same time. The guys know they’re part of something special here and are very excited.”
