Cash Stone 
Coach


Cash Stone attended Burlington-Edison High School from 1951 through 1954, where he was a three-year letterman in football and baseball and a four-year letterman in wrestling.  Francis Bacoka was his high school coach.  Cash lost one match his freshman year and was unbeaten as a sophomore, junior and senior. 
 
Cash then wrestled for Bo Campbell at Skagit Valley Community College.  He was undefeated for the year, competing at 137 and 147 pounds.  Cash transferred to Washington State University and wrestled for Bill Tomaras.  He won the 130-pound championship at the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Tournament in l958.  He was honored with the Inspirational Wrestler Award by his teammates in 1958.
 

Cash earned his Bachelor of Science degree and teaching certificate in the fall of 1958.  His first teaching position was at Eltopia, just north of Pasco.  In the fall of 1959, Cash was hired as a teacher and head wrestling coach at Mead High School.  His energy, commitment, hope, compassion, and work ethic saved, encouraged and inspired thousands of students, staff, parents and community members.  Cash compiled a dual meet record of 450 wins, 124 losses and 6 ties in his 38 years of coaching.  His teams earned 13 league championships, 15 district, 8 regional, and 2 state championships (1983 and 1993).  Cash coached 60 state placers, 10 being state champions and 10 top ten finishes.
 
Cash's 38 years of coaching at Mead led him to many records and distinguished awards.  Some of them include: 1979 Darrell Whitmore Coach of the Year; 1983 Washington State Wrestling Coach of the Year; WIAA Wrestling Coach of the Year; 1993 Inland Empire Coach of the Year; PEMCO/Stanley McNaughton Washington Coach of the Year; 1997 National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Coaches Hall of Fame (first Washington coach to be inducted); 1999 Inland Empire Sports Hall of Fame (first wrestling coach inducted); Washington Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame; and 2002 Washington Chapter of the National Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame.
