John Crawford

John taught math and computers for 30 years at Pasco High School, and also coached basketball and track and field. He also organized the school’s first cross country team.

John refereed basketball at both the local and state levels. He was instrumental in bringing the State Cross Country Championships to Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco and held the role of meet manager from 1988 until 2003. John took on his current role of results manager in 2003.

He was also the State Track & Field Meet Manager (2003-2008), and directed the Pasco Track & Field Invitational (1974-2015) after being a worker (1965-1973).

John’s love of numbers and stats allowed him to play a vital role in the organization and execution of many cross country and track and field events. He developed his own programs for compiling statistics for scoring athletic contests. His programs had significant impacts not only on cross country and track and field, but also football, basketball, and wrestling. He has also taken his expertise to hundreds of other state, regional, league and community events.

After envisioning a premiere track and field and cross country environment in the Tri-Cities, he searched for hundreds of volunteers to help execute his vision, many of whom still help out today. Decades later, he still leads the charge in setting up the facilities, contacting the sponsors, and organizing the finish line.

John was named to the Washington State Cross Country Coaches Hall of Fame (1998), a C.J. Mitchell Special Contributor (2003), and received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Washington State Track and Field Coaches Convention (2008). The track at Edgar Brown Memorial Stadium in Pasco was named after him (2008).

John’s mission has been and continues to be serving the athletes, coaches and fans of the state of Washington.
