Here’s where Enumclaw and White River stand.

Enumclaw: Despite entering postseason play as the 3A’s No. 4 seed, the Hornets won twice on Saturday to advance to the tourney semifinals. The Hornets were 7-3 winners over Capital High and slipped past Kennedy Catholic 7-6, assuring themselves of a berth in the Class 3 A state tournament.

Enumclaw will play twice Saturday at Auburn Riverside High, starting with a 1 p.m. game against Kelso.
