Per Todd Mac Gregor's request, Terri transferred schools because of Rick's abuse.When she confronted him, he grabbed her arm and gave her a bruise.
The next day Hazel notices the bruise, but Terri says it's from gym class.

Hazel broke up with him in their senior year when she felt he was developing feelings for Ellie Nash.
