A night of hoops and honors: Chief Sealth Alumni Game(s), featuring a tribute to Coach Mike Siva

At Chief Sealth International High School Friday night, it was a time to re-live memories on the court, and a time to honor a longtime leader:

Receiving the leis, that’s Mike Siva, who coached at Sealth for more than a quarter-century as part of a 36-years-and-counting career with the district. A tribute to Coach Siva and four rounds of basketball comprised the third annual Nels Enquist Alumni Basketball Game event – more ahead:

With the coach and the sign, that’s Sealth’s head girls-basketball coach Katie Jo Maris (Class of 2001):

The program for the Friday night event describes Siva as “a coach, mentor, leader, and protector to many,” coaching at Sealth 1984-2010 with highlights including volleyball and softball Coach of the Year, 1993 and 1994 Metro championships in volleyball. He also has spent more than 30 years in security at Sealth, currently as part of his role as technical lead specialist in security for the district’s Southwest Division.

Now, to the basketball. Coach Maris and the female alums played first, after opening scrimmages by this year’s girls and boys teams.

They posed for a group photo, too:
