About three weeks ago, the Hawkeye published their second issue of the year and in the sports section, there was a big article written by yours truly about injury and the recovery that goes into them. To write that article, I wanted to get some more perspective on injuries so I decided to go through...

Failing to press one little button. That's all that it took to end the Hawks' women's basketball team from earning the District 1 3A title as they came up just short of the Glacier Peak Grizzlies on Saturday night, 53-52. With the Hawks trailing 53-50, senior post Maddy Kristjanson hit a baseline...

Despite the playoff atmosphere that was clearly felt in the Terraceum on Wednesday night against the Stanwood Spartans, the women's Hawks basketball team stayed true to themselves and played the same type of game which they had all year long. That meant a stifling, physical defense and a high tempo offense. It...

Apparently two different Mountlake Terrace teams showed up to Tuesday's first round 3A district matchup against the Ferndale Golden Eagles. While the final score of 70-46 showed a dominant Terrace team just simply outplaying a talented but young Ferndale squad, at the end of the first half the H...

25 years and no Hawks team could do what this team just did. They brought down perennial powerhouse, the Meadowdale Mavericks with a 40-36 victory on Friday night at Meadowdale. Early in the game it was clear what Meadowdale's gameplan was-shut down junior phenom Samantha Romanowski. And for about...

The scoreboard read six minutes left in the fourth quarter Edmonds-Woodway Warriors 60, Mountlake Terrace 40. Coach Zach Wilde is visibly upset at the officiating late in the game. He starts to bark at the officials and picks up a technical foul. How do you think this story ends? Six minutes to score...

Last year the Hawks' girls' basketball team opened their season 1-8. Last year the Hawks didn't have Coach Zach Wilde. Last year the Hawks didn't play such a crisp, clean offense and swarming, stifling defense. Thursday's 52-26 clear defeat of the Sultan Lady Turks, along with their 65-46 rout of Cascade on Wednesday sends a...

Well that went well. After defeating the Cascade Bruins 65-44 in the season opener for both teams, the lady Hawks are in a prime position to set a tone not seen from the girls' basketball team in recent history. After an expected slow start (it is the first game of the season after all), the Hawks...
