Hornet swimmers swamp Auburn in first meet of season

EHS took first place in all every event.

The Enumclaw swim and dive team opened the 2019 season in fine style, crushing the visiting Trojans from Auburn High School.

The 135-44 verdict was decided at the Enumclaw Aquatic Center, where Hornet competitors took first place in all 12 events.

Four EHS swimmers were two-time winners on the day. Ella Hoyne won both the 200 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, Kate Perlot captured the 200 and 500 freestyle, Anna Bogh won the 50 and 100 freestyle, and Margaret Petellin topped the field in both the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. Adding to the winning point total was Ashley Dickerson, first in diving.

The Hornets also were first in all three relay events. The foursome of Petellin, Hoyne, Bogh and Perlot won the 200 medley relay; the 200 relay featured the quartet of Alexis Swafford, Zoey Ryan, Zusha Maxwell and Hoyne; and the 400 relay went to Petellin, Perlot, Leanna Walski and Bogh.

Taking second-place in individual events were Ryan in the 200 freestyle; Janelle Holmes, 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke; Reagan Molen, 50 and 500 freestyle; Jenna Tingley, diving; and Walski, 100 butterfly.

Enumclaw also placed second in two relay events, the 200 medley relay (Walski, Holmes, Molen and Hannah Baxter) and the 400 freestyle relay (Ryan, Katelyn Marlow, Molen and Holmes).

The Hornets hosted Auburn Mountainview Tuesday and continue their home stand Thursday with a 3:30 p.m. meet against the Sumner Spartans.
