Congratulations Dave Dickson on the 2A State Championship!

From the Bellingham Herald comes this story about MHS Class of 1976 Alumni Dave Dickson’s success in coaching the Squalicum High School Storm basketball team to the 2A state championship this past weekend!  Dave’s team beat Burlington-Edison (my dad’s alma mater, at least during his junior year when he was suspended from Bellingham High School for brawling) 60-49 in the championship, and finished the season with a “respectable” 26-1 record.
Last year, the team beat Seattle Prep to finish 3rd in the 3A Division.
Dave has been a very successful teacher at Squalicum, as I reported earlier.

I’d heard rumors though, that he was washed up.  All wet.

The photo from the Herald clarifies those rumors:

By the way, the Herald did an outstanding job of covering the game — their photos made this former yearbook photographer jealous.  Several good shots of Dave in the mix, so check out their online gallery!

Congratulations, Dave.
