I watched the Mountlake Terrace Hawks men’s basketball team play two games last weekend. They defeated Meadowdale 57-44 on Friday night and then lost on Saturday night to Franklin 58-53. It is unusual to have a situation in which you feel better about a loss than you do a win but that was the case...

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...

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...

It is hard not to sing the praises of the Mountlake Terrace football team these days. The Hawks finished out the season by making the playoffs for the third time in the past five seasons. Not bad for a school that had never made the playoffs during its first 48 years of existence. Coach Tony Umayam,...

Oh what a night!  Mountlake Terrace 2013 Friday night Homecoming was special to me for a number of reasons, both on and off the field. I can’t ever say that I don’t enjoy spending a Friday night at Edmonds Stadium when I am calling a Terrace football game but this one had extra elements that stand...

  I have always had tremendous respect for the United States Army and appreciate the men and women that serve our country, both past and present.

If you want to watch a high school volleyball game, you usually need to buy a ticket and watch it in person. That wasn't the case last week when the Mountlake Terrace Hawks and the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks played at the Terraceum on the campus of MTHS. I had the good fortune on Oct. 2 of being th...

The top two runners on the MTHS boys cross country team seem to be everywhere!! I see them and many of their teammates standing in the front row of football games;...

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...

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...
