Chimacum alumni Shaw earns WOU hall of Fame call

MONMOUTH, Ore. — Former Chimacum High School athletic standout and longtime college basketball coach Jim Shaw will be inducted into the Western Oregon Athletics Hall of Fame today at his alma mater, Western Oregon University.

Shaw attended Chimacum High School where he was an all-state performer in both basketball and football, graduating in 1981.

A member of the Wolves’ basketball team from 1982-85, Shaw earned NAIA All-American honorable mention in 1983-84, and was an all-region first team selection. Shaw led the Wolves in scoring, rebounding, field goal percentage, free throw percentage and assists during the 1984-85 season and was named Evergreen Conference MVP. His teams posted a 72-20 record.

After a lengthy career climbing the ladder in college basketball, Shaw returned as head coach at Western Oregon from 2015-19, going 102-30 with two Great Northwest Athletic Conference Coach of the Year awards and three NCAA Division II Tournament appearances.

Before taking over at Western Oregon, Shaw spent two seasons at St. Mary’s with Randy Bennett; nine at Washington (winning five Pac-10 titles) with Lorenzo Romar; and five at Oklahoma (wining three Big 12 titles and advancing to a Final Four) with Kelvin Sampson. He also was on board at Oregon State when the Beavers featured future Sonic point guard and NBA Hall of Famer Gary Payton.

Shaw is currently the associate head men’s basketball coach at Washington State.

SHORELINE — The Peninsula College men’s and women’s soccer team’s each pitched shutouts against Shoreline on Friday.
