TRISH BOSTROM – Tennis
A trailblazer for women’s tennis at the University of Washington, Trish Bostrom won a Pac-8 title and a national mixed college doubles title as a Husky. Her influence in the history of women’s sports at UW was also expressed off the court where she challenged UW over the inequality in the men’s and women’s tennis programs and won before Title IX was in place. Raised in West Seattle, Bostrom was better than all the boys at Chief Sealth High but was not allowed to play for the high school team. She played professionally for eight years and was ranked as high as No. 5 in the world in women’s doubles and No. 35 in singles. Bostrom’s record includes being a U.S. Open doubles quarterfinalist, French Open doubles semi-finalist, Australian Open doubles finalist, and Wimbledon doubles final sixteen.
JOHN CHERBERG – Coach (Football)
One of the most respected sports figures in the state, he played every backfield position for Jim Phelan’s Huskies in the early 1930s. He coached high school football in Seattle for 13 years, winning three state championships with Franklin and Queen Anne. He was UW head coach for three seasons before entering politics where he served 32 years as the state’s Lt. Governor.
PAT McMURTRY — Boxing
One of the region’s biggest sports stars before the arrival of major league sports in the Pacific Northwest, Pat McMurtry was homegrown, a legitimate title contender and potential heavyweight champion. Starting with his hard-nosed, blue-collar roots on Tacoma’s South Side, Pat at one time was ranked fifth among the world’s heavyweights. One of his biggest career highlights was a decision over George Chuvalo at Madison Square Garden in 1958.
