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.
