Marysville Getchell's Taylor Cannal signs her intent to play soccer for Trinity Lutheran as her new coach

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Getchell’s Marina Wika and Taylor Cannal signed their letter of intents to play soccer for Trinity Lutheran in Everett March 12.

“My coach told them about me my junior year,” said Wika who lettered all four year at MG. “Also I wanted to play for a Christian school.”

“I know I wanted to play in college and the opportunity came around,” said Cannal, who also plays in a select league. “The level is going to be a lot higher, so I have to train.”

Wika then met Trinity’s coach, Tim Colvin, this year and plans on playing midfield and defense for the school via a scholarship.

“My high school coach has really prepared and pushed me to be the best I can be,” Wika said.

Cannal was also invited on a scholarship.

Cannal plans to study business and minor in art. Cannal lettered her junior and senior years at MG.

“I’m just looking forward to making a new family,” Cannal said.

“I want to become an even better player and smarter with the game,” Wika said. “I want to be a better student-athlete.”

Though only coming on as first-year players, Colvin sees leadership and poise in Wika and Cannal.

“I think that they will make a significant impact as freshman,” Colvin said.
