Pioneer Picnic honors La Conner coach and Benson/Berentson family Aug. 3
July 26, 2023
La Conner High School championship volleyball coach Suzanne Marble, a member of two separate state-level halls of fame, is about to add another honor to a thick resume.
Having retired after 30 years from the coaching ranks and on a leave of absence, Marble will receive the 2023 Skagit County Pioneer Association Spirit Award.
She will be recognized Aug. 3 during the business meeting segment of the 119th annual Skagit County Pioneer Picnic in La Conner.
Marble led teams to seven state crowns – a likely eighth title was denied when COVID-19 forced cancellation of the 2020 tournament.
