Gavin Cree - Varsity Head Coach
Coach Gavin Cree enters his fourth year as head coach of the Islander program, having led MI to 21 wins in each of the last two seasons, while advancing to the State Tournament for the 25th and 26th times in school history. Prior to being named head coach, Coach Cree spent five years at various levels in the MI program, including two years alongside former coaching legend Ed Pepple as a full time Varsity assistant.
Gavin was a two-year Varsity letterman for the Islanders, winning a state championship in 1999 and serving as the team's captain in 2000. In September 2005, he was inducted in to the MIHS Athletic Hall of Fame. After a successful high school career, Gavin went on to play for four years at Pomona College in Southern California. His college career culminated in his senior season with a Conference Championship and a trip to Division III National Championships, advancing to the second round.
Following graduation from Pomona in 2004 with a degree in Psychology, Gavin moved back to the area and began working in the commercial real estate industry for Glacier Real Estate Finance. This past summer, Coach Cree was hired as a full time Health and PE teacher at Mercer Island High School. He encourages all athletes at MIHS to enroll in his yoga classes.
