Two area basketball coaches have won 300 games or more - SouthWest Edgecombe girls coach Sandra Langley and Northern Nash girls coach Grover Battle.
Rocky Mount girls coach Pam Gainey may join that club Friday eveving. Her squad will face Langley's team at SouthWest at approximately 6 p.m.
How much pressure is that? To get No. 300, her squad has to beat a team coached by a woman who has won over 600 games and four state titles. And they will be playing in a gym that was recently named after her (Sandra Shelton Langley Gym).
Now that's pressure!
The Rocky Mount girls will be concluding a week that will have seen them play three contests on the road (and five straight games away from home). RMHS lost at South Central 58-48 Tuesday and it took a buzzer-beating 15-footer by junior Tia Hudgins Wednesday to beat Wilson Beddingfield 45-44 to go to 4-1 on the season.
