March Terrace highlighted March with the men’s basketball team visiting the Tacoma Dome and finishing fourth in state. The Hawks lost their first game against the Lincoln Abes, a familiar opponent, but went on to win the following two games against the University Titans and Seattle Prep Panthers. Coach Nalin Sood said, “There are a lot of coaches who will walk out of here feeling like the luckiest coach in the game of basketball and that’s how I feel right now.” The Hawks finished with an overall 22-5 record and the best finish at state as a 3A school.

April One can easily say that April was an artsy kind of month. After years of fading colors and damaged walls, the art murals have outgrown their lifespan, and Art Club began redecorating the art hallway. Art teacher Tim Cashman oversaw the recreation. He divided people into teams and assigned them to different sections of the wall. The process is a long and strenuous one that began by brainstorming ideas and approving them, priming the walls, sketching preliminary ideas, painting the wall, and finally adding a sealent to protect the color. In total, students spent more than 50 hours on each mural.

May May was dominated by headlines of Terrace track achievments. The men’s team had an outstanding season and went undefeated. Several standouts included Duane Dahl, Joshua Kim, Tye Esparza, Beau Kennedy, Quinell Mason, Jack Pearce and Gifton Okoronkwo and others. The women enjoyed standouts in McKenna Hunt, Katherine Walter, and Chinne Okoronkwo. Terrace also sent several competitors to state. Kennedy finished fourth in the javelin, Hunt hurdled to fourth place, and siblings Gifton and Chinne both received first place finishes in the triple jump. In addition, Chinne, who is a freshman, finished second in the pole vault.

Katie Tran, sophomore, carefully paints over her preliminary sketches. Tran paints a mural with a tiger and lion dressed in a tuxedo and dress. Art teacher Tim Cashman divided students and assigned them to sectons of the walls and students spent dozens of hours on each mural.

Sophomore Ryan LaCasse stands ready to grab the baton from junior Devonte Downs at the Edmonds District Meet. MTHS men’s track team finished the regular season with an overall record of 9-0 and placed 14th in state.

June June has crept upon Mountlake Terrace and brings joy and meloncholy. The seniors are now full fledged and prepare for flight to college or employment. Some look to the future with eagerness while others look back upon their four years with sorrow. On the other hand, juniors and underclassmen enthusiastically wait for last day of school with summer zeal for sunbathing, vacations, and outdoor fun. It’s not all fun and games, though, as AP students are assigned summer homework and plan for next year’s rigorous courses. Speaking of planning, students should order their student planners and prepare for the first day of school on Sept. 4.

Kellie Watson and senior Kelsey Watson award Micheal Lotz the Mike Watson Memorial Scholarship “For Love of the Game.” The scholarship was in memory of Mike’s passion for sports and his sad passing in 2012. In his name, Lotz recieved $500.
