E-W to honor legendary coach Mike Pittis Thursday night

For more than 40 years, Mike Pittis has been a legendary coach in the Edmonds School District. He was the only volleyball coach in the 20-year history of Edmonds-Woodway High School and prior to that coached at Edmonds High School (prior to its merger with Woodway) and at College Place Middle School.

Pittis officially resigned from his volleyball coaching position in January of 2010, after the conclusion of volleyball season. So this Thursday, Sept. 9, he will be honored by current and former players, fellow coaches, parents and friends prior to the Edmonds-Woodway/Meadowdale volleyball match.  The fun-filled night begins just before 6:30 p.m. in the Edmonds-Woodway gym.

  1. I didn’t play Vollyball but I remember Mr. Pittis was a PE Teacher when I went to Edmonds High School and I am 49 now! Yikes! Congrats Mr. Pittis!! 🙂

  2. Thank you, Coach Pittis, for inspiring me to run at College Place (I still run marathons, 25+ years later!) and for being an exceptional Advanced Placement English teacher at EHS. You were one of my favorite teachers – thank you for being a positive influence in my life! 🙂

  3. I was never coached or taught by Mr. Pittis, but remember him well, and he was an amazing influence all over campus. We should be proud to have been surrounded by his energy. Thank you for giving so much of yourself throughout the years. May there be many more years of good energy for you!!!

  4. I had the privilege of being coached by Coach Pittis back when College Place was a junior high, ’77-’79. Truly the best coach and teacher I ever had and I’m proud to call my friend. Thank you for your influence to succeed and do things to the best of my ability….you will always be my favorite! Congratulations!!
