The Chargers controlled the contest from beginning to end as the boys and girls teams both dominated across multiple events. The boys outscored the Seagulls 91-54, while the girls won by a score of 87-41.

"We're getting stronger every week and that goes across all of our events. Our seniors have been a big part of that with their leadership and their ability to lift up everyone around them. They're great role models and I'm excited to see what they can do throughout the rest of the season," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Kim Edens.

Marysville Getchell's boys team was led by the senior duo of Ryan Hascall and Coy Rutherford. Hascall finished first in the 100-meters with a time of 12.07 seconds. Rutherford earned a first-place finish in the 200-meters, 24.29 seconds.
