Enumclaw High’s swim and dive team easily swamped Eatonville last week, winning eight of the 12 events.

The three-team meet, which also included White River’s small squad, was another virtual event. Hornets from both sides of the river gathered at the Enumclaw Aquatic Center while the Cruisers splashed through the pool on their campus. In the end, coaches compared times and results were tallied.

Enumclaw registered a 103-66 victory over Eatonville, a Class 1A school that competes in the 2A division of the South Puget Sound League.

Turning in a first-place performance for Enumclaw were the four girls making up the 200-yard medley relay crew. Racing to victory with a time of 2 minutes, 12.77 seconds were Anna Bogh, Clara Madewell, Kate Perlot and Reagan Molen.

Enumclaw also won the 400-yard relay, with Leanna Walski joining Madewell, Molen and Bogh.

In individual races, Enumclaw received first-place efforts from Madewell in both the 200 and 500 freestyle; Perlot in the 200 individual medley; and Bogh in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. Additionally, Ashley Dickerson gave Enumclaw first-place points in diving.

Taking second-place honors for Enumclaw were Walski in the 200 freestyle; Molen in the 200 IM and 500 freestyle; Haley Hetzel in the 100 freestyle; and Perlot in the 100 breaststroke. Also taking second was the 200 relay foursome of Perlot, Hetzel, Walski and Zusha Maxwell.

White River’s girls turn out with the Enumclaw squad but score separately. With just six swimmers in the water, combining for seven events, they cannot compile a lot of points and that was the case in the 107-32 loss to Eatonville.

White River’s effort was headed by Brooklyn Fessler, who won the 200 freestyle, and Cheyenne Fessler, who won the 100 freestyle. They combined with Sam Sapp and Lilly Schatz to place second in the 200 relay.
