MARYSVILLE – Marysville-Pilchuck and Arlington both sent teams to the NW Drill and Rifle Conference Championships Saturday at M-P.

M-P’s drill team competed in the unarmed competition, placing third out of the 30 teams. Arlington came in 10th in Dual Unarmed Exhibition.

In individual competition, Mollie Siguaw, a first-year cadet, placed eighth out of 34 in Sporter Air Rifle.

The top three schools overall – Oak Harbor, Everet and Port Angeles – are in the same Olympic League as Marysville and Arlington. Marysville was 10th overall and five of the top 10 were from the Olympic League.

There are four leagues that compete in four competitions each to determine top three qualifiers in each discipline to compete in the regionals. The leagues are spread from Oregon City to Oak Harbor.

Hosting and competing were a challenge the Marysville cadets, Kathleen Wilde of M-P’s NJRTOC said Monday.

She said it was the first time in 22 years for M-P to host the event, and the cadets overcame obstacles of scheduling, facilities, event management, food and clothing sales, and opening and closing ceremonies.

“They made Marysville proud,” she said. “Not one competitor or spectator walked away without praising the Marysville way.”
