Edmonds-Woodway High School has announced the first set of coaches, athletes and teams being inducted into its newly-formed Athletic Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was created last year to recognize contributions of athletes from all three Edmonds public high schools, starting when Edmonds High School (EHS) first opened its doors in 1909, to the opening of rival Woodway High School (WHS) in 1967, to the merger of the two schools at Edmonds-Woodway (EWHS) in 1990.

The 2015 EWHS Athletic Hall of Fame Inductees, who will be honored at a Hall of Fame ceremony Thursday, Oct. 15, include:

Coaches: Tom Campbell (EHS/EWHS), Bryce Cook (WHS, EWHS), Bruce Evans (WHS/EWHS), Mike Hess (EHS/EWHS), Rich Rowe (EHS), Art Snoey (EHS/EWHS), Fred Shull (EHS), and Dale Parker (EHS/WHS).

Athletes: Karen Bryant (WHS), Deanna Carr (EHS), Mike Rankin (WHS), Karl Van Calcar (EHS)

Teams: 1949 Edmonds High School Football Team, 1984 Woodway High School Girls Basketball Team.

The EWHS Athletic Hall of Fame Ceremony will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 15 in the EWHS Great Hall. Those interested in attending should reserve their ticket by contacting EWHS Athletics Secretary Denise Lewis by calling 425-431-6177 or emailing lewisde@edmonds.wednet.edu

The inductees will also be recognized during halftime of the Oct. 16 EWHS football game at Edmonds School District Stadium.

  1. It should be noted that Bryce Cook started at EHS then went to Woodway when they opened. So happy to see these great coaches and athletes honored.

  2. I’m proud to say that I knew coach Rowe, Coach Snoey, Coach Hess, Coach Shull and Coach Campbell (who allowed me the honor of coaching the 1976 men and women’s shot and discus squads): fine men and coaches, who inculcated life long lessons for those of us experiencing their teachings and training.

    I’m sad to see that so few great athletes, such as our senior miler, Craig Martin, and Rich Demeroutis, a great shot puter, were left out of the running, as both young men were state level ranked superior competitors.

    Coach Hess still makes me proud to have been a member of his teams, and to be able to say with great pride, that I am a surviving member of select groups, who can claim to be Graduates of Hess’ Happy Time!

    Some of these men are now gone from us, but I promise, they have NOT been forgotten!
