Updated Wednesday June 8, 2016 by Hominy Valley Recreation Park.

Congratulations to Enka’s Varsity Softball – 2016 NCHSSA 3A STATE CHAMPIONS!

The Enka Sugar Jets took on the Aycock Golden Falcons in in the NCHSSA 3-A softball championship held at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro Softball Stadium in Greensboro on June 4th.

Enka swept the best-of-three series to become the first Western North Carolina fast-pitch program since Owen (1999 and 2000) to repeat as a state champion.

Enka won the first game against Aycock 8-6, and the second game 5-3 to claim the 2016 NC state championship.

Sugar Jets coach Jennifer Kruk was part of previous Enka fast-pitch state championships as a player (1996) and coach (2015).

We’re very proud of our Hominy Valley girls!

Way to go Sugar Jets!!!
