In a late regular season dual meet, the Mountlake Terrace Hawks track squads were put to the test by a loaded Shorewood Thunderbird team Thursday at Edmonds Stadium.
Both the Terrace boys’ and girls’ squad came up short in team scoring to Shorewood, but a number of Hawks posted personal-best efforts at the meet.
Terrace’s Jaden Lofrese set a personal record of 2:04.7 to win the boys’ 800 meter run, an event where the top four finishers all ran their fastest times ever.
The Hawks’ Payton Love took first place in the boys’ shot put with a mark of 43-08.00, his personal best. Love also tossed the discus a personal record of 126-10, good enough for second place in the dual meet.
Among the girls, Terrace’s Madison Sadler threw a javelin more than 100 feet (100-06) for the first time in her high school career in winning the event on Thursday. Sadler also won the girls’ discus competition with a season-best mark of 93-06.
The Hawks’ Lila Guerrero took the top spot in the girls’ triple jump with a personal record of 31-09.00.
