I received an e-mail about WIBCA inducting seven people into its Hall of Fame. Here’s the information:
The Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association will induct seven new members to their Hall of Fame at Whitworth University on July 22 and at Seattle Pacific University on July 29.
The Spokane banquet will honor Dave Olzendam (Medical Lake, Rochester, Coulee-Hartline, and Newport), Dwight Pflugrath (Ritzville, Mansfield, Brewster), and longtime assistant coach Toivo Piippo (St. Joseph Junior High of Richland). The Seattle banquet will fete Bill Bakamus (Toledo, Coulee-Hartline, Mark Morris), Mike Downs (Bellevue Christian), Phil Lumpkin (Seattle Prep, O’Dea), and longtime Mark Morris assistant Steve McCallum. Longtime Fife coach John McCrossin will receive the Ed Pepple Service Award.
Both banquets begin with a social hour at 5 p.m. followed by dinner and induction ceremony at 6 p.m. Cost to attend is $30. RSVP to Dave Dickson at 360-201-5218 or ddickson(at)bham.wednet.edu.
