Duane Hodges resigns as Edmonds-Woodway girls basketball coach

Duane Hodges has stepped down as head girls basketball coach at Edmonds-Woodway after four seasons.

The Warriors finished 9-6 in the WesCo South Division this season and went 0-2 at district to finish 12-10.

Here is the statement Hodges e-mailed:

“I will not be returning as the girls’ basketball coach at Edmonds-Woodway next year. The reason for my departure is personal, but in the four years the Edmonds-Woodway program has achieved a 73-30 record and made two state appearances after a 17 year absence, finishing fifth in 2010 and in the top eight in 2011. Additionally we began a feeder program for our community’s younger girls that currently has  a combined record of 34-7 this season. Our booster club fundraising events eliminated the need to rely on any taxpayer money and allowed our girls to play with no financial hardship, and still hire a full-time assistant coach. In 2011 I coached the Washington squad in the Northwest Shootout game won by the Washington all-stars versus their  Oregon counterparts.

However, most importantly are the relationships developed with my assistants, my AD, the other coaches in our league, and especially my former players.  I will look back at my time at Edmonds-Woodway with great fondness and wish the best for the returning players and my successor to continue with a program for which the community can be proud.”
