PHOTOS BY KEVIN HANSON The Enumclaw High cross country program hosted its only home meet of the season on the afternoon of Sept. 22. The Hornets hosted Washington and Foss high schools, competing on the 3.1-mile course at the Enumclaw Expo Center. The EHS boys defeated the Washington Patriots, while Foss entered only one runner. On the girls’ side, Washington was the automatic winner as both Enumclaw and Foss could not field a full team. In these photos, Enumclaw’s Evan Cheney, left, and Trevor Storm are at the front of the pack (and went on to claim first and second place, respectively). Shown at the start of the girls’ race are, from left, Enumclaw’s Ahna Lemeshko, Lindsay Essex and Ava Sawyer. For details about the South Puget Sound League 2A meet, see Sports Roundup.
