The Enumclaw High girls hit another grand slam, winning the South Puget Sound League 3A tennis title for the fifth year in a row.

The Hornets posted a 9-1 record, losing only to Peninsula. The beat the Seahawks in another meeting.

Enumclaw now has a 36-1 record spanning four years.

Coach Rick Carel said despite losing four very good seniors last year, four players from this year’s team – Camille Sorensen, Kylie Rademacher, Olivia Adams and Bailey Malneritch – stepped onto court and continued the winning streak.

Carel said Sorensen had played before, but kept working her way up to a high level of play.

Carel said his returning players, Barbara Becker, Kylee Almy, Mariah Bone and Jordan Koontz gave the team the solid play he was expecting.

Becker earned first-team all league honors and Bone was selected for second-team all league.

Carel received coach of the year accolades.

‘We worked hard,” Carel said. “The returning girls were great and the younger girls followed their example.”

In the district tournament, Almy and Bone will be will be competing in the doubles bracket. Rademacher and Adams will be the alternates.

Carel said the secret to the Hornet’s year-after-year success is the “Magley barn.” The coach said teams are always fighting rainy weather and trying to find practice facilities during inclement weather.

Dr. Randy Magley offers his tennis court to the team for practice during bad weather.

“The barn is behind our league championships,” Carel said.
