The Marysville Getchell and Marysville-Pilchuck golf programs came together to compete in the annual Jack and Jill Jamboree on March 8.

The Jack and Jill Jamboree is a kickoff to the golf season for the Chargers and Tomahawks. Both the boys and girls teams partnered up, and alternated shots in order to post the best score possible and walk away with the Jack and Jill Championship.

"The biggest thing that I saw out there is that the weather was bad, but it did not phase any of them. All of the guys were able to focus on their game and put together solid performances," said Marysville-Pilchuck boys coach Dan Dewitte.

The Tomahawk duo of Jarren Parks and Katelynn Melohusky, State competitor, dominated the competition from beginning to end, as they scored a 38. The next closest duo of Beth Erickson and Justin Trueax scored a 44 for Marysville-Pilchuck. The huge gap between the duos came from the close range game and the ability to sink putts with consistency.

"This is a really fun way for both schools to come together and have some friendly competition. Both of our programs are very solid so I see it as an opportunity to use each other as a measuring stick and see where we're at early on," said Marysville Getchell girls coach Jaci Legore-Hodgins.

The second-place score of 44 was also shared with the Chargers' duo of Hayley Francis and Bernard Euplessis. Abbie Braun, State competitor, teamed up with Justin Good as they came in fourth place with a score of 46 for Marysville Getchell.

"We have a lot of new guys this year so a lot of our focus is just getting those fresh faces familiar with the game. We're just trying to get better everyday, improving our short game and working on the mechanics," said Marysville Getchell boys coach Ryan Gilbertson.
