Seniors led the way as the Mountlake Terrace Hawks baseball and softball teams each scored decisive victories over Wesco League North Conference opponents on Friday.
Hawks’ senior Kendall Yackley hit two home runs – one a grand slam – and accounted for seven RBI’s as Terrace blanked the Oak Harbor Wildcats 11-0 in a mercy-rule six innings contest played at Mountlake Terrace High School.
In addition to going 3-for-4 at the plate, Yackley pitched for more than four innings, gave up just two hits and no earned runs, and struck out three Wildcats to earn the mound victory. Dillon Gordon retired all five batters he faced to close out the Terrace win.
On the softball diamond at Marysville-Getchell High School, Hawk seniors Jazz Zenk and Sammy Ruiz each had five RBI’s in a Terrace 14-8 romp over the Chargers.
Zenk went 5-for-5 at the plate with two doubles in the win. The senior also earned the mound victory by taking over for starter Laney Flynn and striking out four Chargers over the game’s final five-and-two-third innings.
Ruiz went 3-for-5 with a triple for Terrace while sophomore Kierra Scott went 4-for-4 with a home run in the Hawk victory.
At Edmonds-Woodway High School, the Hawk girls tennis team fell to Wesco League South Conference leader Edmonds-Woodway 5-2 on Friday.
