Peter Thomas


    Peter Thomas, a lifelong Pierce County native born Dec. 31, 1966, in Tacoma, graduated from Bellarmine Prep in 1985. He earned his bachelor's degree from University of Washington-Tacoma in 2001. While he did not play any sports in high school, he spent a lot of time playing slowpitch softball "on a lot of bad teams." At one point, he played for five different teams at the same time. He considers one of his greatest athletic achievements to be no broken bones.

    Peter has spent 18 years with the Tacoma-Pierce County Volleyball Officials Board, serving as the president in 2006. Peter has been a college line judge for over 10 years and has worked numerous league and district tournaments during his officiating career. Off the volleyball court, he's spent a lot of time sitting on a bucket catching for his two daughters who both play fastpitch as pitchers and attending a majority of PLU athletic contests where his wife, Jen, is the Senior Associate Director of Athletics. He works as a crew member at Trader Joes.
