Support the Marysville Getchell Chargers | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

As homeowners in Marysville for 11 years we were very proud to have our daughter attend the new Marysville Getchell high last year.

As homeowners in Marysville for 11 years we were very proud to have our daughter attend the new Marysville Getchell high last year.

District-wide budget cuts had placed the sports program opening at Getchell in jeopardy. After hard budget reconfigurations by the board and tremendous support by parents and the community, the Getchell Chargers will begin on track this season.

I think its very important that we turn out in person at the games this season to show our continuing support for all their hard work. Getchell’s first football team has been practicing relentlessly all summer long to build the team and make their debut the best possible. The new athletic director for Getchell, Coach Bronson Castellano has been encouraging coaches and players to set their sights on going to the west coast conferences.

Only the Varsity football games will be scheduled this year at the Marysville Pilchuck fields until we can fund another grandstand at Marysville Getchell. All other sports including jv football, girls soccer, volleyball and cross country will be played at Getchell. The very first home game at Getchell will be girls soccer on Sept. 8 at 5:30. So please join me in starting a new tradition of supporting the Marysville Getchell Chargers.

Thank you,

Paula Ireland
