WIAA Names Justin Kesterson as Assistant Director

RENTON, Wash. – The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association has hired Justin Kesterson as its newest Assistant Director, the Association announced Wednesday. Kesterson’s appointment comes after the Association announced the hiring of Assistant Director BJ Kuntz last week.

Kesterson joins the staff from Tyee High School where he has served as the Athletic Director since 2016 and was named the 2018-19 2A South Puget Sound League Athletic Director of the Year. In this position, as well as in his previous stint as the Athletics Events Manager at Highline Public Schools, Kesterson was able to gain familiarity with WIAA rules and work collaboratively with other WIAA member schools. He served as both the wrestling commissioner and the League Treasurer for the SPSL and managed coaching standards for schools within the Highline School District.

While he has gained experience in the WIAA, Kesterson began his career in the collegiate realm, working as the Assistant Director of Operation and Media Relations at Montana State University – Billings from 2009-2011 before being promoted to Director in 2011.

Kesterson earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Management from Marshall University and earned a Master of Sports Administration from Seattle University.

“Justin brings a very diverse and innovative background to our team and he will be a great asset for member schools and administrators,” said incoming WIAA Executive Director Mick Hoffman.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association is a private, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) service organization and rule-making body that was formed in 1905 to create equitable playing conditions between high school sports teams in Washington. The Association consists of nearly 850 member high schools and middle/junior high schools, both public and private, and is divided into nine geographic service districts. The state staff administers Association policies, rules and regulations and provides other assistance and service to member schools.
