Delaney Marchiol and Jacob Garrow Selected As December Student-Athletes of the Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Delaney Marchiol (girls swimming & diving) and Jacob Garrow (hockey) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for December 2021.

Delaney Marchiol is a senior at MSHS and is having another strong season as part of the MSHS Girls Swimming & Diving Team.

She came into the season holding two school records (200 Individual Medley Relay set in 2021 and 400 Freestyle Relay set in 2019), one U.P. record (400 Freestyle Relay) and is a two-time U.P. Champion.  At the 2021 MHSAA U.P. Swimming & Diving Finals, Delaney racked up one 1st Place finish, three Runner-Up finishes and one 3rd Place finish en route to earning a place on the All-U.P. Team.

So far, Delaney’s senior season looks to be no different than any other season in that it’s filled with success, achievement…and first place finishes.  She racked up four first place finishes (200 Medley Relay, 200 Freestyle, 100 Butterfly, 400 Freestyle Relay) during a competitive triangular meet with Houghton/Sault Ste. Marie on December 18 and two top-three finishes at this past weekend’s Muzz Relays in Saginaw.

In the classroom, Delaney owns an impressive 4.12 cumulative GPA and is a four-time honor roll honoree.  Outside of school, she enjoys working at Yoophoria, reading and watching sunsets.  Delaney’s post-graduation plans are to attend NMU or Michigan State to pursue a career in the medical field, possibly as a veterinarian or pediatrician.

Jacob Garrow is a junior student at MSHS and is an assistant captain on this year’s Varsity Hockey team, which is having a fantastic first half of the season with a 12-1-1 overall record and currently ranked #1 in MHSAA Division 2, according to Michigan Hockey Hub.

On the ice this season, Jake is having a breakout year both in terms of performance and as a team leader with 2021-22 marking his third year as a Varsity Hockey student-athlete.  In the 14 games played so far this season, he has accumulated 7 goals and 15 assists for 22 points, which is tied for tops on the team.  Jake currently leads the team in plus/minus with a +21 rating.

At the conclusion of the 2020-21 season that saw MSHS reach the Division 2 state semifinals, Jake was honored with the team “Unsung Hero” award.  He received the team’s “Most Improved” award as a freshman (2019-20).

Outside of school, Jake has volunteered for the TV6 Canathon as well as in various capacities within Marquette Junior Hockey.  In his free time, he enjoys golf, snowboarding and training to become a better athlete.

Although still a year away, Jake’s post-graduation plans are to continue his education and hockey career with the hopes of fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming an NCAA Division I Hockey player.

After an injury caused him to miss the first four competitions of the 2021 cross country season, Carson returned for the final six meets that concluded with him capturing the individual title and first place at the 2021 MHSAA U.P. Division 1 Finals.  In the six events that he competed in, Carson placed no higher than sixth, including a runner-up finish at the Great Northern Conference (GNC) Championships.  As a team, 2021 served as the second straight undefeated season for the squad and third consecutive MHSAA U.P. Division 1 championship.

Carson’s athletics performance this fall earned him All-State, Academic All-State, All-U.P. “Dream Team” and All-GNC honors.  This season marks his second consecutive season earning these accolades.

In addition to cross country, Carson also participates as a member of the Boys Track & Field team at MSHS, where he is the reigning MHSAA U.P. Division 1 champion in the 3200 Meter Run.

Kelsey Kivi and Austin Ridl Honored as September Student-Athletes of the Month

Marquette Senior High School, along with Superiorland Kiwanis, are proud to announce that Kelsey Kivi (sideline cheer) and Austin Ridl (football) have been named as the Student-Athletes of the Month for September 2021.

Kelsey Kivi is a senior student at MSHS and currently participates as the sole senior on the MSHS Varsity Cheer Team.

The fall sports season is certainly a busy time for Kelsey as she dual-participates as a member of both the MSHS Cheer Team and Marching Bands.  Her senior year marks her fourth as a simultaneous participant in each of these programs.

Academically, Kelsey is a three-year member of the honor roll.  Outside of school, Kelsey volunteers time as a Bay Cliff Camp Counselor and also participates in service activities with her fellow cheer teammates such as bagging groceries and helping with the Haunted Hayride.  She is also employed as a server at the Marquette Big Boy.

In her free time, Kelsey enjoys dancing, skiing and baking.  Her post-high school plans are to continue her education and pursue a degree in Architecture and Interior Design.  She also plans to receive a certificate in Cosmetology.

Austin Ridl is a senior captain on this year’s Varsity Football Team at MSHS and is in the midst of his third consecutive season as the team’s quarterback.  The team currently owns a 5-2 overall record and 3-1 mark in the Great Northern Conference (GNC).

As a junior, Austin had a standout football season.  He was named to the All-U.P. “Dream Team” and All-GNC teams in addition to also garnering All-State Honorable Mention accolades.  As a member of the MSHS Boys Track & Field Team last spring, Austin was a member of the 400-Meter Relay Team that set a new school record and was also a member of the 800-Meter Relay Team that captured first place at the MHSAA U.P. Track & Field Finals.

In the classroom, Austin maintains a 3.92 cumulative GPA, has made the honor roll each semester of his enrollment and is a member of the National Honor Society.  Outside of school, Austin works as a youth football official for Marquette County Youth Football and is a manager at Wake U.P., the school coffee shop at MSHS.

Austin’s post-graduation plans, both academically and athletically, have yet to be determined at this time but he intends on continuing both his education and football career in college.
