Mask Update


WIBCA MASK UPDATE Due to continual complaints of participants not following masking guidelines, the WIAA in partnership with WSSAAA, WOA, WIBCA and WSGBCA is authorizing basketball officials to remove participants for improper masking compliance. The Governor’s Office and State Department of Health require masks to be worn over the nose and mouth at all times indoors. If an official sees a mask improperly worn, they have the authority to remove the player until the next dead ball. In an effort to avoid officials having to enforce compliance and disrupt the rhythm of games, we are asking coaches to be role models [...]

In Memory of Coach Ed Pepple


It is with great sadness that the basketball community and the state of Washington said farewell to retired Mercer Island head basketball coach, Ed Pepple, who passed away on the morning of September 14th, 2020. To everyone he was “Coach Pepple”. The list of accomplishments and accolades achieved by Coach has no peer, he simply is “The GOAT”.  The all-time winningest coach in the history of boys basketball in the state of Washington with 952 wins (Mercer Island HS, Mark Morris HS and Fife HS) achieved over 49 years and also inducted to numerous hall of fames, this was only [...]

In Memory of Coach Keith Kingsbury


Longtime Edmonds CC men’s basketball coach Keith Kingsbury, right, poses with Edmonds College coach Kyle Gray during the Tritons’ 2020 basketball season. After a battle with cancer, former Edmonds Community College men’s basketball coach Keith Kingsbury died on Monday, Aug. 24, less than five weeks after his 80th birthday. Kingsbury’s coaching statistics are eye popping and are worthy of an individual who has been inducted into three separate Hall of Fames: Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association in 2009, Northwest Athletic Conference in 2013 and the Snohomish County Sports Hall of Fame in 2016.  His numbers merit legendary status: [...]
