Move on over Wesco 3A South teams, you are about to have company. The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) announced last week the reconfiguration of the six size classifications of the 380 Washington state high schools and the conference that Mountlake Terrace plays in is going to...

Newspapers, magazines and online publications love to publish “Best of the Year” lists in early January so I figured I would take my shot at compiling one. I definitely witnessed my share of MTHS sporting events in 2013 in a handful of capacities. I broadcasted 49 games for the Sound Live Sports...

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...

To read the recap of the Hawks' first defeat of the season, click here. This isn't about the game so much as the fans. The game was entertaining. The Hawks played ...

Going into Friday’s game, both the Hawks and the Mavericks were undefeated on the year. One team would get their first loss and the other would stay perfect. On Friday night, Terrace kept their perfect season going, defeating the Mavericks 57-44. So far this year, seniors Loren LaCasse and Greg Bowman have led the Hawks to vict...

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...

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,...

  Not that many Sophomores would verbally commit to one of their first collegiate offers or commit in their sophomore year for that, but that is exactly was Mountlake Terrace Sophomore Drew Serres did. On Oct. 22 2013, Serres verbally committed to play baseball for the Beavers at Oregon State University. In late August, Serres went down to a prospect ...

The Hawks' football season came to a end Saturday night, as they came up short 31-21 against the Mountainview Thunder at Mckenzie Stadium in Vancouver. The Hawks struggled early to get a rhythm going and going 3-and-out on the first drive. Mountainview would score early after the pu...

Mountlake Terrace entered Thursday night's volleyball game with an impressive 12-4 record. Make that 12-5 after their 3-1 defeat to the Ferndale Golden Hawks in a District 1 playoff game. After losing the first set, 25-16, the Hawks came out playing on their heels, but were able to recover and play...

The first week of the playoffs are just about over and five MTHS teams are still competing!! What an incredible week it has been on the sports front for Mountlake Terrace High School and the athletes of the fall aren’t finished yet. Back when I was a student at MTHS over 20 years ago, other schools...

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...
