Michael Washington resigned after five seasons as the South Whidbey boys basketball coach to become an assistant principal at Cascade High School.
Washington posted a 57-54 record in his five seasons at the helm and guided the Falcons to the Cascade Conference title last season. It was the program’s first league championship since 1989.
“Since I started coaching in 2014, every player that came through the program has some ownership in the plaque that will always hang in the rafters in the gym,” Washington told the South Whidbey Record.
Prior to his time at South Whidbey, Washington was the Oak Harbor boys basketball coach for eight seasons. He led the Wildcats to three consecutive district tournament appearances from 2011 to 2013, ending the program’s 13-year postseason drought.
