The Enumclaw High volleyball team advanced to postseason play, but the Hornets found success was hard to come by.

Coach Jackie Carel and her crew competed Nov. 12 in the opening round of the West Central/Southwest District tournament. Playing at Curtis Junior High School in University place, the Hornets dropped both matches and saw their season come to a close.

In their district opener, the Hornets fell 3-0 to Skyview High. A couple of hours later, in a loser-out match, Enumclaw lost 3-1 to Auburn High.

The Hornets finished the season 8-11 overall.
