MTHSHawks logoGoing up against some of the toughest competition they will face all year, the boys and girls track teams of Mountlake Terrace High School picked up solid finishes at the Tacoma Invitational held on April 12 at the Lincoln Bowl. The girls squad finished ninth among 28 teams, while the boys tied for 19th among the 29 teams participating.

Sophomore Chinne Okoronkwo led all Hawk competitors by winning both the girls pole vault and long jump events; her winning mark of 12-6 in the pole vault is a new MTHS record.

Other top placements for the Terrace girls on Saturday were Ella Schroth finishing second in the 1600 meters, Katherine Gustafson grabbing second in the 3200 meters, and Hailee Mains, who finished fifth in the shot put and sixth in the discus.

On the boys side, Hawk senior Brett Potter placed fifth in the discus and sixth in the shot put, and Jack Pierce earned sixth place in the 1600 meters.
