Rocky Mount girls basketball coach Pam Gainey is nearing another milestone in her coaching career.
Gainey, a native of Goldsboro and a former player at East Carolina, is in her 15th season at Rocky Mount and in the coming two weeks or so should reach the 250-win plateau. RMHS, currently sporting a fine 14-1 record, travels to Nash Central and Northern Nash next week before returning home on Tuesday, Feb. 5 with Southern Nash.
Should her girls win all three contests, Gainey will have her 250th victory.
Gainey, who has been the victorious East head coach at the NCCA East-West All-Star Game, will be an assistant for the N.C. girls squad in the Carolinas Classic N.C.-S.C. All-Star Games at Winthop University in South Carolina in March.
