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...

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 basketball games at Mountlake Terrace have been thrilling so far this season. However, something isn’t quite right and I really hope it changes. The fans who are showing up are cheering throughout the games just as you would expect, but the attendance numbers are down and consequently the atmosphere...

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...

Jam Session XX is coming up next Tuesday and I can’t wait! My introduction to Jam Session last year brought a look of disbelief to the face of Vince DeMiero. A few weeks prior to the 2012 event, I was asked by Vince if I would be his co-host and my immediate reply to him was “What is Jam...
