While looking both to the future and to the past, Mountlake Terrace High School highlighted five graduating student athletes and one retiring coach during a ceremony held Tuesday at the school.
Four of the Class of 2019 graduates — Emma Agricola, Dillon Gordon, Andy Lee and Jesse James Martineau — signed collegiate letters of intent during the event.
Terrace coaches Alvin Little, Nalin Sood, George Dremousis and Andrew Watters spoke at the ceremony, sharing accolades and stories from the athletic careers of the five Hawk athletes.
Watters, a 1991 graduate of Mountlake Terrace High School, was also honored at the event for his 20 years of coaching in the Terrace baseball program. Watters had announced prior to the start of the 2019 season that this year would be his last at the helm of Terrace baseball.
