Nick Robertson

Nick Robertson  - Coaching


Nick Robertson coached boys basketball for 41 years at three schools, finishing with 699 victories, two state titles and having co-founded the state’s most prestigious winter tournament – the Les Schwab Classic.

Robertson’s career began at Sandy in 1964, but took off at McMinnville, where he coached the Grizzlies – led by center Charlie Sitton - to the 1979 state title with a double-overtime win over Churchill. McMinnville went 27-0 and extended the win streak to 39 games the next season.

After moving to Beaverton, Robertson coached the Beaverton Beavers to the 1989 state final and the 1998 state championship. He guided the Beavers to the Metro League title 10 times in 22 seasons, and his teams to the large-school state tournament 25 times.

Robertson was inducted to the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.
