Marysville-Pilchuck set to play first game since shooting

Marysville-Pilchuck will play its first game Friday since the tragic shooting at the high school last week.

The Tomahawks have been practicing at Quil Ceda Stadium, the football team’s home on the campus, all week, but it will be the first time most students and faculty have returned to Marysville-Pilchuck High School — the campus has been closed — since the shooting.

The Tomahawks’ game at 8 p.m. will be preceded by Marysville Getchell-Lynnwood, which kicks off at 5 p.m. The 4th-ranked Marysville-Pilchuck will then host No. 7 Meadowdale at 8 p.m. in the Wesco 3A title game.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and a large crowd is expected.

“We’ve had great practices all week,” Marysville-Pilchuck coach Brandon Carson said. “The kids have been focused, got a lot of work done. From a practice standpoint, I think things have gone great. I think it’s great for them to be together for a couple hours a day.”
