The 2019 Shoreline Track and Field Invitational was dedicated to Juli van Pelt.

Juli van Pelt has contributed to the Shoreline School District Track and Field world for 29 years. 

She began coaching at Shorecrest in the spring of 1991. Juli is also a long time teacher both in Edmonds and Shoreline.

Juli graduated from Camby High School in Oregon. She was an All American Heptathlete at Seattle Pacific University. During her career there, she cleared 6’0” in the high jump. 

Her coaching accomplishments include over 20 Wesco Champions and 35 State qualifiers. She coached a State Meet Record holder in the long jump as well as 4 school records in long jump. 

Juli was part of the coaching staff for Shorecrest’s Girls State Championship team in 2015/2016.

Juli and her husband Morlin’s two sons, Liam and Craig, continue the love of Track and Field by competing in Cross Country and Track at Goshen College and Inglemoor High School.

Shorecrest Head Coach says “Known to most as “VP”, she is the ‘mamma’ of the team. Her athletes cherish her, her coaches respect her and she is simply the best. 
“VP” has the distinct ability to know exactly when to push an athlete to the max, hold their hand for comfort and when to turn them loose and let them fly. She’s an amazing coach, fabulous human being and a great friend.”
