LIST: 100-Season Club members and those near (update 3)

Here’s a list of local high school coaches who have coached 100 seasons, and those who are close.

Being a member of the 100-Season Club as a high school coach is an impressive achievement. It shows tremendous longevity, considering it requires a minimum of 34 years, coaching three sports each year, to reach a century.

Here’s a list of local coaches who have achieved that mark, including seasons as a head coach or an assistant, as compiled by club member Steve Bertrand:

Name Years active Schools Sports coached Number of seasons
Keith Gilbertson 1950-2011 Snohomish Track, cross country, football, boys basketball, girls basketball 100-plus, probably close to 150
Ernie Goshorn 1965-present Lynnwood, Lake Stevens, Granite Falls, Jackson Cross country, track, girls basketball 100-plus
Roger Haug 1973-2016 Everett Boys basketball, football, track, softball 100
Steve Bertrand 1975-present Cascade, Rogers (Spokane) Cross country, track, wrestling, girls basketball 115-plus
Cliff Chaffee 1975-present Lake Stevens, Cascade Cross country, track, boys swimming, girls basketball 106
Mike Wilson 1978-2015 Cascade, Sultan, Snohomish, Archbishop Murphy Wrestling, football, baseball, soccer basketball 113

And here’s a list of honorable mentions who are in the vicinity of the 100-season mark, along with their primary school and estimated number of seasons:

Duane Lewis, Lynnwood, 97

Mark Perry, Snohomish, 95

Tim Boyd, Everett, 90

Michael Beauchamp passed along a name that he believes belongs in the 100-Season Club. He estimates that Stanwood’s Dennis Kloke has coached 125-plus seasons. Kloke, currently the head coach of the Stanwood girls basketball team, has coached at Marysville, Marysville Pilchuck and Anacortes in addition to Stanwood. His sports include, football, boys and girls basketball, track and golf.

Again, if you have anyone to add to the list, email

Monroe High School track coach Brittany Kitts brought to my attention that her father Craig Bekins, the longtime head coach of the Cascade High School track team who is listed among the honorable mentions with an unknown number of seasons, is also a member of the 100-season club. Kitts’ calculations came up with 122 seasons for Bekins, whose high school coaching career also includes time with Lakeside, West Seattle, Inglemoor, Woodinville, Snohomish, Sultan and Monroe (where he is currently an assistant track coach) in addition to Cascade. The sports he’s coached are track, football, basketball and volleyball.
