WHS announces Steve Johnson as boys' head basketball coach

   Woodinville High School Principal Vicki Puckett has announced the appointment of Steve Johnson as boy's head basketball coach. Johnson, an assistant coach for the past 6 years, served as interim coach last season, replacing Joe Meagher, who stepped down in mid-January for personal reasons.

   Johnson is a full-time member of the English department. He is married and the father of five-month-old twins. Meagher will remain in the role as athletic director, a position he has held for five years.

   WHS won its opening KingCo playoff game before falling at the buzzer to Franklin in a district entry game.
