Combined MG, M-P swim team hopes to make waves
The combined swim team of Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell practices at the M-P pool.
MARYSVILLE — Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell's composite girls swim team will return with much depth from both teams for its 2014 season, M-P and MG swim coach Jaci Legore-Hodgins said.
On M-P's side, sophomore Abby Magee had tremendous performances last year as a single and relay swimmer, placing high in districts and competing in state.
Junior Rebekah Pusateri is also expected to have a strong season.
Senior and captain Serena Corbett will step up in leadership and improve her backstroke, Hodgins said.
Two other senior captains, Corrine Tubbs and Lisa Fuller, are also looking to lead the Tomahawks.
Marysville Getchell returns two divers and adds a new one. Senior Brooke Wherely, who placed second in state, and junior Alex Pimental, who was tied for ninth are back.
First-year diver Chloe Bishop is anticipated to be a terrific addition to the diving team, Hodgins said.
The leadership consists of captains Wherely and senior Samantha Peterson.
"She is a strong leader and experienced swimmer who contributes both in and out of the pool," Hodgins said of Peterson.
