Enumclaw Hornets

Loop is named to all-state baseball roster

He’ll join another Hornet in Yakima for Team Rainier for the upcoming all-state baseball series

A second Enumclaw Hornet has been added to the roster for the upcoming all-state baseball series.

Senior Kaden Loop learned last week that he was tabbed for the July 10-11 doubleheaders, which bring together top players from around the state for two days of baseball in Yakima.

Loop joins Cole Kaschmitter on the all-state roster.

Due to the pandemic that wiped away his junior season at Enumclaw High, Loop enjoyed just a single season of varsity baseball under coach Eric Fiedler. He made the most of the opportunity, hitting at a .448 clip that included five doubles and four home runs, resulting in a slugging percentage of 1.034.

“Kaden was a rare five-tool player for us this year,” Fiedler said. “He can hit for average, power, run the bases, field and has a strong arm.” The coach also could benefit from Loop’s versatility, moving him from right field to first base when teammate Ethan Thomas was on the pitching mound.

Loop and Kaschmitter will be teammates in Yakima, where the invited seniors will be divided among four teams, all named for imposing peaks in the Evergreen State (Rainier, Adams, St. Helens and Baker). The Hornet duo will play for Team Rainier which will be coached by Scott Striegel of Arlington High School.

After helping the Hornets to a South Puget Sound League 2A championship during the past season, both Loop and Kaschmitter were first team, all-SPSL 2A selections.
