Hornets Wrap Up Season with Awards Banquet

The Enumclaw High School Girls Water Polo Team ended their 2016 season with their annual Awards Banquet on Thursday, June 2 at the Enumclaw High School library.

The Hornets finished their season with a 24-8 record, an East Division title, and a seventh place finish at the 2016 Washington State Championship Tournament. This was Enumclaw's second consecutive East Division title, and 11th straight year advancing to the State Tournament.

Several Hornets earned individual honors, too. Seniors Anna Davenport, Hannah Simurdak, and Grace Sales were named to the First Team All-Division Team. Junior Grace Rich and sophomore Morgan Hall earned Second Team All-Division honors, and senior Lauren Pratt earned All-Division Honorable Mention. Hall also earned All State Tournament Honorable Mention.

The team also awarded team honors at the banquet, as voted on by the players. The Hornets recognized first-year junior Jordan Lawson as the Most Improved Player. Senior captain Grace Sales was awarded the 110% Award, and senior captain Brandi Meneghini was voted Most Inspirational Player. Senior Hannah Simurdak was voted Most Valuable Defensive Player, and senior captain Anna Davenport was named Most Valuable Offensive Player.
