Editor's note: This press release is from the Shoreline School District.
Shorewood High School and the Shoreline School District are pleased to announce the hiring of two coaches for the upcoming Spring Sports Season. Bill Wilkins will assume the head coaching duties for the Boys Soccer team while Joe Puetz will be the T-Birds next Girls Golf Coach.
Bill Wilkins takes over for Nathan Davis, who resigned after last season to accept a teaching and coaching job at Woodinville High School. Bill was the Boys JV coach the previous year, and also served as the T-Birds Varsity Girls Coach this past fall.
Joe Puetz takes over the Girls Golf program from Shannon Nyblod who resigned this fall. Joe currently is the Boys Golf coach at Lakeside High School, which participates in the alternate fall golf season. In addition, Joe serves as the JV Boys Basketball coach at Lakeside.
"We are excited to have both Bill and Joe on the Shorewood coaching staff," said District Athletic Director Don Dalziel. "They both bring significant experience in their respective sports and we feel fortunate that they have accepted our coaching offers. We look forward to building the T-Bird athletic programs with Bill and Joe, along with all of our coaching staff at Shorewood."
Cross-district school Shorecrest also recently hired Don Lloyd as its next Boys Golf coach. Lloyd replaces Brian Story who resigned last spring to accept a teaching job in the Renton School District. This will be Don’s second coaching experience at Shorecrest, although his previous job was as an assistant Fast Pitch Coach in the late 90’s. Don comes to Shorecrest with a wealth of golf knowledge and an understanding of high school athletics.
"Don will make a great addition to the Shorecrest coaching team," Dalziel said.
