The Peninsula College women’s basketball team is among the elite women’s teams in the Northwest Athletic Conference. The Pirates are coached by Alison Crumb, a Port Angeles product who played for Peninsula before coming back to coach the Pirates. The PC women have qualified or the NWAC Championship Basketball Tournament nine straight years and in 2015 won their first NWAC Championship in the history of women’s basketball. Coach Crumb was named NWAC Coach of the Year. In 2019, the Pirates won their third North Division title. Entering her 11th year as head coach, Crumb has established herself as one of the professionals to watch in the intercollegiate women's basketball community and is quietly building a program that, like soccer, is becoming a destination program for high school basketball standouts from up and down the west coast. Off the field, Peninsula College athletes participate in community service projects and play a significant role in the development of young players through the basketball camps, as well as engagement in elementary, middle school and high school mentorship programs and school clinics.
