It’s not too late to volunteer!

Are you dying to watch the first #IssyTakeOver meet track-side? Some of the best “seats” in the house are available for volunteers — as a timer, helping out at high jump, triple jump, and long jump. You still have the chance to sign up to volunteer online. Our first meet is coming up next week on Thursday, 3/16!

Tracy will email you by the Sunday night prior to the home meets to let you know if you have a spot and what position she has assigned to you.

Home meet start times are 4:00, so volunteers should arrive by 3:30 PM. Please sign up on the volunteer page.

Gwen Robertson awarded Washington State Coach of the Year

The USTFCCCA awarded Gwen Robertson Washington State Coach of the Year.

One boys coach and one girls coach from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia  were honored for their successes during the fall of 2016, as selected by a committee of experts from around the nation.

State-by-state winners were selected based on their teams’ performances throughout the 2016 cross country season. Among the factors taken into consideration were team score and placement at the state championships, margin of victory, performance against rankings if available, individual championships, and how their teams’ performances stacked up to previous years (e.g. first title in school history, consecutive titles, etc.).

Each honoree will receive a trophy from the USTFCCCA recognizing his or her achievements.

While this award was based on team performance, we are truly blessed with the best coach in the state. Gwen started coaching at Issaquah High School in 1983 as a volunteer in cross country and track and field.  Gwen has served as either assistant or head coach for the last 33 years at Issaquah. Her boys XC teams claimed 7 league championships, with 2 back to back in 2015 & 2016. Her girls teams have won 12 league championships and has had 4 state titles, with the fourth in 2016.

Coaching for Gwen started at Issaquah H.S. in 1983 as a volunteer in cross country and track and field. Gwen has served the role of either assistant or head coach for the last 29-years at Issaquah. Her boys’ teams claimed five league titles and her girls’ teams nine. Her girls’ teams won three state titles in the mid 1980’s.

Gwen retired from head coach of Track and Field in 2016 to become a volunteer but continues to devote her time to Issaquah Cross Country as head coach.
