This year Wesco 3A, like 4A, has been split into north and south and most of the changes occur in the north.
Stanwood and Marysville Pilchuck both move down to 3A and the Spartans have a new coach — Doug Trainor — to boot. Both teams figure to make some noise in their new conference.
Everett will be reloading after losing QB Riley Ayers and RB Blake Williams and Oak Harbor, which finished second in Wesco 3A last season, should be contenders with QB Ian Kolste and a stout offensive and defensive line returning.
Marysville Getchell should be more competitive with a year of experience.
