Seattle Area H.S Offers Division Title to Grieving Marysville-Pilchuck


Great tragedy for some often brings out the best in others.

Which in the world of Sports often happens in strange and different ways.

On Friday, the students of Seattle area Marysville-Pilchuck High School had their worlds rocked when a freshman football player walked into the school cafeteria and began shooting, killing one student and injuring 4 others before taking his own life.

Friday night, Marysville-Pilchuck was scheduled to play their arch-rivals, Oak Harbor. Out of respect to what happened, the game was not played.

But in the spirit of the moment and out of respect for their fellow students, the football team at Oak Harbor did something that will always be remembered.

They forfeited the game.

And that forfeit gave Marysville-Pilchuck the district title. Oak Harbor gladly accepted second place. Along with that, several Oak Harbor players came to Marysville and attended a Pilchuck team meeting. A gesture that was happily accepted and appreciated by all concerned.
