The Marysville Getchell girls softball team opened up league play on their home field against the Stanwood Spartans on March 17.

In the first inning the Chargers looked to be in a good position as they quickly dispatched the Spartans with a shutout inning. However, the second inning fell apart as Stanwood rattled off four runs. Marysville Getchell answered back with two of their own to manage to keep it close.

Over the next five innings the Spartans found openings to score and took advantage of them while the Chargers answered back where they could. However, Stanwood held on to their lead the rest of the way as they grabbed the victory with a score of 10-6.

"Offensively, I think we swung the bat pretty good and we had aggressive at-bats. Allowing runs really hurt us again, like it did last year. I think a lot of that is just it being early in the season because fielding wasn't the problem, it was just catching it. We made some mistakes that way, but I saw a lot of good things out there. They didn't get down and they are positive," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Mike Moran.

Senior outfielder Avery Holscher led the Chargers with an incredible offensive performance. Holscher had a team-high three hits, to go along with a walk, two runs, one RBI and three stolen bases.

The pair of sophomore infielders, Hannah Kranz and Emily Petermeyer, also had great offensive days as well. Kranz had a pair of hits that generated two RBIs and Petermeyer had two hits, one run and three stolen bases.

"We're looking for consistency moving forward. We gave them some runs and they gave us some runs too. I think they realized that they could play better than how they did, and they are confident as we look toward the rest of the season. Just keep improving every day and we'll go from there," said Coach Moran.
