Yesterday, the Hawks hosted the Terrace Invite, a track meet that had 14 High Schools in the area participating. These schools included Mountlake Terrace, Meadowdale, Juanita, Shorewood, Marysville Getchell, Ballard, Port Townsend, Lakeside (Seattle), Alberni, South Whidbey, Lummi, Coupeville, Chimacum, and Concrete.

All schools participated in both the Mens and Womens categories except for Lummi, who only brought their Mens squad. The final standings were:


1-Meadowdale (140)
2-Mountlake Terrace (124)
3-Juanita (119)
4-Shorewood (72)
5-Marysville Getchell (70)
6-Ballard (68)
7-Port Townsend (59)
8-Lakeside (Seattle) (38)
9-Alberni (37)
10-South Whidbey (33)
11-Lummi (31)
12-Coupeville (11)
13-Chimacum (7)
14-Concrete (2)


1-Mountlake Terrace (164)
2-Ballard (125)
3-Marysville Getchell (117)
4-Juanita (77.5)
5-South Whidbey (75.5)
6-Shorewood (73)
7-Port Townsend (52)
8-Meadowdale (44)
9-Lakeside (Seattle) (35)
10-Alberni (35)
11-Concrete (11)
12-Coupeville (7)
13-Chimacum (4)

First place finishes for the Hawks included Jack Pearce in the mile, Katherine Gustafson in the mile, Jack Pearce again in the two mile, McKenna Hunt in the 100 meter hurdles, Brett Potter in the shotput, Hailee Malins in the shotput, Chinne Okoronkwo in the pole vault, Chinne Okoronkwo in the long jump (with Barbara Biney coming in a close second), and Chinne Okoronkwo in the triple jump.

Looking at the results, it’s typical that Okoronkwo carried our girls to victory as usual, and that Jack Pearce was the guys’ MVP of the day.

The Hawks next meet will be Thursday, May 1st at 3:30 PM at Oak Harbor High School. Hopefully Okoronkwo, Pearce, Gustafson, and others can continue to carry the Hawks track team to success.
