Enumclaw tennis swinging for sixth league title | 2015 spring sports previews

The 2014 South Puget Sound League champion Enumclaw Hornets are on the tennis courts swinging for a sixth consecutive league title. The girls tennis team features a strong group of younger players and experienced athletes.

The 2014 South Puget Sound League champion Enumclaw Hornets are on the tennis courts swinging for a sixth consecutive league title.

The girls tennis team features a strong group of younger players and experienced athletes.

The Hornets lost Kylee Almy and Jordan Koontz to graduation. The pair helped lead the team to a 11-1 finish last season and the team’s fifth consecutive league title. Over the past four years the Hornets have lost one league match and won 36.

Coach Rick Carel expects the 2015 team to be just as dominating.

“We are right where we want to be,” Carel said. “We win as a team and theses girls can play anywhere (doubles or singles).

Mariah Bone returns after a strong postseason in 2014 competing at the state tournament in doubles with Almy. She is a well rounded athlete who can play either singles or doubles.

Kylie Rademacher will bring her athleticism to a winning doubles team with Olivia Adams.

Barbara Becker is another strong all around player the Hornets feature.

Carel said in the opening weeks he has been working with an impressive group of freshman on the courts this season, which bodes well for the Hornets’ future success.

Enumclaw is scheduled to travel to White River for a 3:30 p.m. match.
