We had many great times playing basketball for the Scotty's. Maggie was a strong advocate for equality for women and gay a lesbian in sports. She was one of the ground breaker and made it easier for others to follow. Bless you Maggie and your partner Bette

I am so sad to hear of Maggie's passing. I doubt that Husky women's basketball has ever had a better fan. Maggie was ahead of her time. She inspired me with her determined spirit and great appreciation for the efforts of the teams I coached at Washington. God Bless Maggie's family and friends at this time. I'm sure you miss her greatly.

It was my very great privilege to be a colleague of Maggie's as both a teacher and administrator. I so admire her courage in advocating for girls' sports and for being an advocate for our gay and lesbian students. The 1993 Homecoming helped all of us understand their struggles in a very real way. I loved your sense of humor, your energy, and enthusiasm. The example you set for other coaches had an impact on my daughter's journey as an athlete in another Edmonds district school. My life has been enriched by knowing you as a co-worker and friend. Rest in peace, dear Maggie, and know that your life made a difference.

The Maggie I knew was fierce in her beliefs, in her loyalty to family and friends, and in her determination to create a level playing field for women in sports. Cheers to you, Maggie, for a game well played!

Maggie was a wonderful teacher and support for women's athletics. I remember the Scotty's basketball team she started and how much fun her friends had playing with her.

Maggie was also the coolest Aunt a person could ask for. I always admired and loved her. There are so many fond memories but I will share this one. I think I was in 7th or 8th grade and I was visiting her and got to go to school with her. She gave me a locker and I was the new girl in every class. SO fun. It's wonderful reading all the posts.

Maggie set the bar high in all aspects of her life. She expected all of us who were taught and coached by her to live with integrity, courage and tenacity. I was incredibly fortunate to play basketball and volleyball for her from '75 to '78. As a teacher and a coach myself, Maggie's voice is always in the back of my mind. She is a Mountlake Terrace "institution" and will always be remembered by every member of the Baughn family.

Maggie King, I knew you as a very gracious lady and of greater importance, a leader not only for your students and players, but we coaches as well. you gave us strength, courage and wisdom to challenge those who didn't see females on the same level
as males. Female athletes and coaches have come to respect the fact that they want to learn, play, and coach at a level that demonstrates their athletic greatness and love for sport. You are our local hero and I think you are on the same level as Pat Summitt. Thank goodness you stayed here to be an example and teach all of us to continue to achieve and teach greatness.
