Winner, winner, chicken dinner

Brady Schow excelled this year in safety participation, one of the welding competitions through SkillsUSA. Schow is new to Marshfield this year and has already shown what he has to offer. Schow is also part of the schools track and field team where he competes in javelin and the 100 meter dash. 

“As a senior it’s been more rewarding because I’ll never get another chance at these  opportunities,” Schow explained. “It is that much more significant that I was able to accomplish it as a senior.”


Garcia-Silver won state in cross country this year. This is his second year winning a state title in cross country. Garcia-Silver plans on attending BYU after high school to pursue his running talents and to study pre-medicine. Along with cross country, Garcia-Silver also is part of the school’s successful track and field team. Garcia-Silver has placed multiple times in the annual state competition for track and field.

“Winning state again as a senior is almost expected,” Garcia-Silver commented, “yet it shows that you are excited and ready to move to the next level.”


Cece Visser is a senior member and captain of the speech and debate team. Visser won state this year for program oral interpretation. Visser has been a speech and debate athlete since her freshman year. She plans on attending Oregon State University and joining their speech and debate team. 

“Competing as a senior feels like your chance to prove all of your hard work for the last four years was worth something,” Visser said, “that all the failures just helped you grow into the best version of yourself.”


Johnathan Calvert has been wrestling for MHS since his freshman year. Calvert has continuously climbed up the ranks and has been getting better and better each year. This season, though, Calvert is a senior, which means this is his last year wrestling as a pirate. Luckily for him, his hard work paid off and he managed to place fourth in state this year wrestling in the 152-159 pound weight class.

“This year is my first year placing in state which makes it my best year of wrestling,” Calvert stated. “I’m glad my senior year was my best year because it made it more meaningful.”
