Hornets Open Season at Jamboree

The Enumclaw High School Girls Water Polo Team opened their 2014 season with two losses and a win at the Curtis Jamboree on Saturday, March 15.

The Hornets lost to defending State Champion Curtis, 11-3, in the opening game of the jamboree, and lost to Wilson, 9-6, in the Hornets’ second game. The Hornets beat Bellevue, 6-0, in Enumclaw’s last game of the jamboree; backup goalkeeper Lauren Pratt registered the shutout.
Coaches Bob Averill and Ken DeMan are returning for their tenth year coaching the EHS Girls Water Polo Team.  Joining Averill and DeMan is Tia Hellman, a 2008 graduate of EHS, and a recent CWU graduate, who played water polo at both schools.

The Hornets are led by captains Megan Lesmeister, Hayley Sonneson, and Bailey Sexton. Senior Megan Lesmeister has earned All League honors each of the past three years, and All State honors for two of those years.  She also has competed in USA Water Polo’s Junior Olympics.  Juniors Sonneson and Sexton both were named to All League teams as sophomores.

Also returning for the Hornets are junior Madi Woodall, and sophomores Anna Davenport, Lauren Pratt, Grace Sales, Brandi Meneghini, Sierra Clough, and Megan Wolgamot. Joining the Hornets for their first year are sophomore Hannah Smurdak and freshman Emilie Weyer.
