King’s Coach Rick Skeen Reaches 300 Win Milestone!

Last night’s 55-38 Bi-District basketball tournament win over Seattle Academy was the 300th career win for King’s Basketball Coach, Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Rick Skeen.  Mr. Skeen has coached the Knights for six years and, prior to that, led the Burlington-Edison Tigers of the Northwest Conference for eleven years.  Under Coach Skeen, the Knights have played in the 1A State Basketball Championship game four years in a row winning State Championships the past two seasons.  Recognized with numerous Coach of the Year awards, Coach Skeen is admired for much more than wins and losses.  He is dedicated to his student-athletes’ development as young men; men of courage, faith, integrity and grit.  Way to go Knights!  Way to go Coach Skeen!

Come out to support our boys and girls basketball teams this Saturday at Mountlake Terrace! Boys play at 1:00 p.m.; girls at 3:00 p.m. Winners will go on to state.
