The Terrace points racked up a bunch of team points in two long-distrance events; nine Hawks placed in the top 10 of the 1600 meters, while Terrace grabbed the first six finishes in the 3200 meters.
Senior Brett Potter took first place in both the shot put and the discus throw for Mountlake Terrace, while Hawks also earned the top spot in pole vault, long jump and triple jump.
On the girls’ side, Terrace’s Chinne Okoronkwo won three events – the triple jump, the long jump and the pole vault – and placed second in the high jump. Hawk Katherine Gustafson finished on top in two events, the 1600 meters and the 3200 meters.
