In 2018, the Mountlake Terrace Hawks made a long postseason run of nine games, ending their year in the WIAA 2A State Baseball Tournament championship game. This year, the Hawks’ postseason lasted just one game.
Terrace had their 2019 campaign ended with a 3-0 defeat to the Blaine Borderites in a District 1/2 2A Baseball Tournament loser-out game played at Pipeline Fields in Blaine.
The Hawks, seeded No. 9 in the district tourney, could only muster two singles off Borderites’ starter Colby Knutzen, who pitched five-and-a-third innings and struck out seven to earn the mound victory.
Terrace starter Dillon Gordon and reliever Ryan Cacatian yielded only six hits to the Borderites; Blaine, the district tournament No. 8 seed, manufactured single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings off of a sacrifice, a bases-loaded walk and a Hawk error.
With the loss, Terrace ends the 2019 season with an overall record of 9-12. The game also marked the final time Hawk Coach Andrew Watters will lead the team; Watters had announced prior to the start of the season that this would be his last with Mountlake Terrace.
The Hawks played the 2019 season without eight graduated players from the 2018 squad that had compiled a record of 20-9 and became the 2A state runner-up, the best finish for a Mountlake Terrace baseball team in the history of the school.
