The Marysville Getchell girls basketball team is getting ready for another season as they have their eyes set on building on their last season.

Last season the Chargers ended their season with a league record of 7-5 and an overall record of 12-10. After finishing with a winning record in the regular season, the Chargers had trouble closing out games in the district playoffs. They lost both of their games in the postseason by close margins against the Snohomish Panthers, 38-30, and the Shorewood Thunderbirds, 39-38.

"We just want to make sure that we improve as a team and are successful in finding that bond throughout the season. We aren't looking at wins and losses, instead we are learning to love the game and grow as young women in this community," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Shannon Grandbois.

Over the offseason the Chargers lost three four-year starters due to graduation and their dominant young rebounder, sophomore Madeline Grandbois, to an ACL injury. They will be looking to their young core to step up and fill those positions this season.

Marysville Getchell will be led this year by their backcourt duo of senior Mylanie Cabrera and junior Sydney Norton. Cabrera looks like she will earn a starting role for the Chargers, and will be the only senior to start off games. Norton returns this season with the most varsity experience from last year's starting rotation.

In the front court, the Chargers will rely on the sophomore pair of Alexus Atkins and Piilani Tupou. With height and power, they should be able to control the paint on the offensive and defensive ends.

If you want to come out and support Marysville Getchell, their first game will be against the North Creek Jaguars on Monday, Nov. 27, at 7:15 p.m.
