The Mountlake Terrace Hawks were hoping to duplicate the deep run they had in last year’s District 1/2 2A Volleyball Tournament, but this year’s squad won’t get that opportunity as the Hawks were knocked out of the tourney Tuesday night.
Terrace was defeated by the Sehome Mariners 3-2 (17-25, 26-24, 25-20, 16-25, 15-11) in a district tourney first round loser-out match played at Mountlake Terrace High School.
After winning the first set 25-17, the Hawks dug themselves a hole by dropping sets two (26-24) and three (25-20). A fourth set victory 25-16 by Terrace set up a winner-take-all fifth set, ultimately taken by Sehome 15-11 to give the Mariners the 3-2 match triumph.
With the loss, the Hawks finish their 2017 season with an overall record of 5-10.
