Hornets Lose Two at State, Finish Season

The Enumclaw High School Boys Water Polo Team ended their 2011 season with two losses at the State tournament on Thursday, at Rogers High School in Puyallup. The Hornets finished their season with a 14-13 overall record.

Enumclaw opened play on Thursday against the defending State champion Curtis Vikings in a 4:10 contest. Curtis showed why they're the defending champions, beating the Hornets 19-2. In their second game, at 6:30, the Hornets faced Roosevelt. Roosevelt got off to a great start against the Hornets, holding a 6-1 lead after one quarter.

The Enumclaw squad fought back to a 4-9 deficit at halftime, and pulled within four after three periods, but couldn't keep up with the Roughriders through the final quarter.

Mason Culp and Quinn Warner each scored a goal in the Hornets first game. In the second game, Bennon VanHoof scored six and Will Cooper and Gabe Sales each scored one.

Other teams that lost two games in the opening round at State to finish their season were Auburn Riverside, Peninsula, and Emerald Ridge. You can find up-to-date scores from State tournament play here.
