January 2019:

I hope this message finds you well.

I am thrilled to be the new Head Boys Golf Coach here at Bellingham High School. For those who do not know me, my name is Michael Russo. I am a Career & Technical Education Teacher at BHS as well as the Head Girls Basketball Coach at BHS. I have great respect for the tradition and excellence the Bellingham High School Golf Program has achieved and I look forward to continuing this and growing the program!

My vision for the BHS Boys Golf Program is to develop competitive teams and individual golfers that excel on the course, in the classroom and in the community. Student Athletes in our program will personify the tradition of excellence at BHS and put forth maximum effort to carry this tradition forward. We will unite together for a greater purpose: bringing sustained success to the BHS Boys Golf Program.

I have great appreciation for the journey we are embarking on and for the competitive nature of golf in the Northwest Conference and the state. That being said, my goals are to develop your son’s skills and abilities, work together as one team, return BHS to the top of the conference, and sustain our culture of success over the years to come.

Bellingham High is an established school and community that has fantastic students, faculty and parents. I am grateful for the opportunity to enter the scene now and thank you for the foundation you have laid before me.

Moving forward into the season in February, a weekly communication will be sent out noting the upcoming schedule, reminders, updates, etc. As of right now, I will begin making connections with Student-Athletes who may be interested in playing this year to grow our participation. Our first practice on our home course of Sudden Valley will be on Monday, February 25th as a first date to put on the calendar.

I have already secured a spot in the Gamble Sands Invite, a wonderful course to play at and a great overnight experience for the kids. We will also play the Snohomish Golf Course (the Districts course this year) to learn and gain experience there too.

The email list that I have is very preliminary right now so if you know of anyone who may be interested in golfing this year or who would like to have more information about golfing, please feel free to send me their contact information or you can have them contact me.

If you have any questions from this email or moving forward towards the season, please feel free to contact me:

Thank you in advance for your support of the Bellingham Boys Golf Program and I look forward to getting the ball rolling!

Here we go…Go Red Raiders!!
