MG Chargers will continue sports at colleges
MARYSVILLE — Marysville Getchell will have some graduating Chargers continuing their athletic careers in college.
MG has five committed to playing football next season with quarterback Michael Cameron playing for NCAA III Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn., on top of graduating with a 4.0 GPA.
“He’s worked very hard and competed a lot in the last season,” head football coach Davis Lura said. “The proof is in the pudding for him.”
The other four – offensive lineman Nathan Eshete, wide receivers Austin Bradshaw and Kody Williams, and tight end Francisco Juarez plan – to play for Everett Community College.
With MG’s athletic program being three seasons old, Lura said he had a unique role in developing the football players’ interest in sports after high school.
“Their love of the game started here,” Lura said.
For girls soccer, forward Kelsee Crenshaw will play for the University of Washington, and forward Bailie Weikel, and midfielders Ashlei Ryan and Victoria Lentz will play for EvCC.
Kendra Lacoste will play volleyball for Edmonds Community College.
“She just started playing her sophomore year and in just three years she has excelled so much,” volleyball head coach Kara Veach said. “Lacoste was a team captain last year, and her leadership skills will serve her well in college, Veach said.
“I believe she will be an asset to the team,” Veach said. “She has a great work ethic, and I see her getting better.”
