Event victories were hard to come by for the Mountlake Terrace boys and girls track teams as the Hawks saw their first dual meet action of the season Thursday.
The Snohomish Panthers outscored the Hawks in both the team competitions as the Panther boys ran away from Terrace 102-43 at Veterans Stadium in Snohomish; the Snohomish girls defeated the Hawk girls 95-55 at the dual meet.
Terrace’s Hart twins shone brightest among the Hawk athletes on Thursday; Julia Hart won the girls 100 meters and the girls javelin event while sister Sandra captured the girls 800 meters race.
Both Hart sisters helped the Terrace girls 4×200 meter relay team take first place in that event; Julia anchored the winning 4×100 meter relay for the Hawks while Sandra was a member of the winning 4×400 meter relay team.
Terrace’s Trinh Nguyen edged out teammate Logan Otani to grab the girls 100 meter hurdles victory.
On the boys’ side, six Hawks came out on top of individual events. Jason Lofrese won the boys 3200 meters by a half-second, Payton Love captured the shot put, Thaddeus Merten was the victor in the shot put, Brandon Bach was the comfortable winner of the javelin, Alex Woodard grabbed the high jump and freshman Logan Middleton was the surprise winner of the long jump.
