Kelsee Crenshaw is getting used to making history at Marysville Getchell High School.
The Chargers’ senior is a part of the first class to go to the school for all four years, and while there she has helped the Marysville Getchell girls soccer team post its first winning record in school history and win its first-ever district playoff game this past season.
And now, Crenshaw has become the first student athlete from Marysville Getchell to sign a National Letter of Intent. Crenshaw signed a letter of intent on National Signing Day to continue her education — and soccer career — at Washington State University.
“I am so excited,” Crenshaw said. “I can’t even express how excited I am.”
The senior was a first-team All-Wesco 3A North forward, along with a pair of soccer players from Marysville’s other 3A high school, Marysville Pilchuck’s Mackinzie Nolte and Amanda Klep, who also signed letters of intent to play in college.
Crenshaw, who has played soccer since she was 4 years old, was a big part of the Chargers’ success this season. Marysville Getchell went 7-3-3 in league, and 10-6-3 overall, finishing second in the Wesco 3A North behind its crosstown rival.
“It’s really cool making history at that school,” Crenshaw said. “I love it. It’s a great feeling.”
When Crenshaw, who was also looking at San Jose State, visited the WSU campus she said “it felt like home.” She liked that it was close enough to her home but still a good distance away from Marysville.
“It’s far enough, but close enough,” she said.
Crenshaw has an older sister Megan, who also attended Washington State and did her best to talk the Cougars up.
With open enrollment in the Marysville School District, Crenshaw chose to attend Marysville Getchell. She liked the idea of going to a new school.
And making a little bit of history.
“I wanted something new,” Crenshaw said. “I wanted a newer school. And MP’s been there forever. I thought it would be kind of cool to be the first class to go all the way through.”
