As I woke up today on a cold northwest fall morning I thought to myself “why do my knees, feet, and back hurt so badly?” I quickly remembered all the times physicians recommended that I didn’t compete in a game, and being the stubborn athlete that I was, I played anyway.  Athletes are constantly...

Did you know there are more than three sports teams at Mountlake Terrace High School? That is what 2013 Steve Willits would tell 2011 Steve Willits if the two were to ever meet face to face. Prior to being asked to be the play-by-play announcer at MTHS last year, the only sports I had paid attention...

Although both Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood are going into tomorrow night's game with low expectations due to their 0-2 records, the Hawks and Royals will both be playing hard. Any rivalry game, whether professional or amateur, always has a more intense feel to it. This game is sure to be no different....

When did it become a negative thing for a high school athlete to play multiple sports? The term “three sport athlete” was once used to signify an all-around athlete and represented dedication, productivity, and a willingness to strive for greatness. Great athletes like Jim Brown, Bo Jackson, and...

EDMONDS- As the final whistle sounded pure elation erupted from the Mountlake Terrace girls’ soccer team. Mountlake Terrace two, Meadowdale one. On Tuesday night the Hawks simply outplayed the second ranked team in all of 3A soccer from start to finish. When the game began, Meadowdale had an 11-1...

A high school girls soccer game is the last place that I expected to be brought to tears. I suppose that I should be somewhat embarrassed to admit this in an article for everyone to read, but after witnessing the generosity and thoughtfulness displayed by the students of Mountlake Terrace and Meadowdale...

After all the fans had left, the stands were cleaned, and the locker rooms cleared, the score still stood 35-0 as the Hawks were shut out by the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors. But in all reality, that didn't matter. In a non-league game, (due to the fact that E-W is a 4A school) the Hawks played fantastic...

Let’s face it. Week one was nowhere near where the Hawks had hoped to be. In all honesty, week two likely won’t be much better. The Hawks are already battered and worn and they are going up against a Wesco 4A Edmonds-Woodway Warriors team that just smacked Everett 49-0. Everett may be far from a state cham...
