"It was a really tough game for us and we fought really hard. We did a really good job adjusting throughout, but Terrace was able to mix up their hits and that gave us some trouble. Looking forward, we have a lot of returning players for next season and we are making a plan to help them get better," said MG Head Coach Kristina Naff.

It was the Chargers' senior night as they were led by their five seniors: Evelyn Gutierrez, Makayla Belew, Kathryn Andrews, Kara Elshaug and Hayley Francis. Andrews, Francis and Belew led the team with their offense from the outside, as well as their ability to block shots. They were responsible for creating a lot of the offense for Marysville Getchell as well as turning the momentum in their favor.

Marysville Getchell played their last game of the season and will be going into their offseason with the goal of progressing with their experienced core.
