On July 25, the 45th WIBCA Hall of Fame Banquet was held at the Wenatchee Convention Center inducting two legendary North Central Washington Head Coaches, Tim Taylor (Brewster) and Mike Carlquist (Okanagon). The 80 people in attendance were treated to a sumptuous buffet, snappy one-liners from emcee Pat Fitterer, and inspirational speeches from the inductees. Additionally, Bruce Siebol (Sunnyside) was presented with the “Patrick Fitterer Positive Coaching Award” and Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets) was awarded the “Ed Pepple Service Award” for his contributions to the improvement of basketball in Washington.
