Ed Pepple to be inducted in national hall of fame

Ed Pepple, one of the winningest coaches in high-school boys basketball history, is among 12 individuals who will be inducted in the National High School Hall of Fame July 10 in San Diego.

Pepple retired last year after a phenomenal 42-year career as coach at Mercer Island, where he compiled an 882-237 record, won four state championships (1985, 1993, 1997 and 1999), finished second three times and claimed 23 league championships.

Including seven years at Fife and Mark Morris of Longview to begin his career, Pepple’s overall 49-year record was 952-306. He is the winningest coach in state history and ranks No. 11 nationally.

The 12 inductees in this year’s class increases the number in the Hall of Fame to 374.

Among other inductees are former football and track star Michael Carter, swimmer Janet Evans and track and cross country runner Suzy Favor Hamilton, as well as coaches, officials and administrators.
