West Sound has a couple more entrants in to the Washington
Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Howard Thoemke will be honored at the induction ceremony on July 24.

He was the coach when the Christian Welp-led Trojans won the AA title in 1983. That was the last Kitsap boys basketball team to win a state championship.
Former Sequim coach Larry Hill will also be inducted.
North Kitsap’s Jerry Parrish, a Hall of Fame football coach, will receive the Ed Pepple Service Award for his contributions to high school basketball. Parrish was a longtime official and announcer.
