On Oct. 27, the final regular season swim meet for the Wesco North was held at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

The "Last Chance" meet, otherwise known as JV Championships, consisted of a lot of young ladies looking to cut down their time to qualify for a wild card spot at the district meet. Many hopeful athletes walked in as they competed in their usual, and some new, events as they looked to advance. When looking at team scores, Marysville-Pilchuck ended in seventh, scoring 113, and Marysville Getchell ended in eighth, with a score of 60.

When talking to Marysville Head Coach Jaci Legore-Hodgins about key swimmers on her team she said, "M-P senior Abby Magee is a driving force on our team and the swimmer all the girls love to watch because she is our most accomplished and experienced swimmer. MG senior, Mallory Ford is our top organizer and the "Mom" on team that the girls talk to and she keeps us posted on what we need to know. MG senior Kylie Prouse goes above and beyond to help anybody and everybody. MG junior Emma Savidge is always there to help and is our team decorator. MG junior Morgan Devlin organized our Senior Recognition Ceremony which was absolutely wonderful and finally, junior Kyairra Vogan was the speaker at this event and did an outstanding job."

Marysville-Pilchuck had a consistent team that stayed within the top 20 in many events. However, junior Camryn cross was able to break the top 10 with an eighth-place finish in the 100-yard butterfly.

Marysville Getchell had a few standout swimmers in the meet, including senior Lily Roberts, junior Penny Adrien and sophomore Maria Danang. Roberts finished 11th in the 100-yard freestyle and contributed on a fifth-place 200-yard freestyle relay. Adrien finished eighth in the 100-yard backstroke and Danang finished seventh in the 100-yard breaststroke.

"This is always our favorite meet because it is the majority of our girls' last meet and they always drop time and swim very well. We were very pleased with how everybody did. It is a great grand finale for our season. Coach Taylor does an extraordinary job preparing these girls for this meet," said Coach Legore-Hodgins.
