The Mountlake Terrace Hawks boys tennis team suffered their second straight shutout this week with a 7-0 drubbing by the visiting Shorewood Thunderbirds on Wednesday in a Wesco League match staged at Mountlake Terrace High School.
Shorewood, champions of the 2A/3A Wesco League South Conference for the past four seasons, lost just two sets to the Hawks in Wednesday’s match-up.
Terrace lost earlier in the week 7-0 to North Creek, but should be in for a much more competitive day on Thursday, Sept. 20, when they host the winless Lynnwood Royals; first serves are slated for 3:30 p.m.
