Athletes, coaches and teams who graduated from Edmonds, Woodway and Edmonds-Woodway high schools were honored during the third annual Edmonds-Woodway High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony Thursday night in the EWHS Great Hall.

The EWHS Athletic Hall of Fame was created in 2015 to recognize and honor student athletes, coaches, teams and sports contributors from all three Edmonds public high schools — starting when Edmonds High School first opened its doors in 1909, to the opening of rival Woodway High School in 1967, to the merger of the two schools as Edmonds-Woodway in 1990.

Attendees look at awards and photos of the Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

This was the first induction event since 2019, due to the pandemic.

Here’s a list of those individuals, teams and coaches from Edmonds High School, Woodway High School and Edmonds-Woodway High School who were inducted for 2022 and their accomplishments:
