Ottawa, IL - With a 63-40 win over Rockford East Friday night in Ottawa, Metamora Varsity Girls Basketball Head Coach Brianna Morrow collected her 200th win all-time. The wins are between three schools, Moweaqua Central A&M, Decatur St. Theresa, and Metamora.

After the win, Coach Morrow had this to say.

"I'm very blessed to have amazing kids that have played for me, amazing coaching staff, it's been fun. I've had great parents that support. I've had three great administrations that have always supported Quinn and I. We've had great parents and people in those communities. They've embraced my kids. They've allowed my family to be a part of it."

She went on to talk about some of her favorite memories from her 13 years coaching at the high school level.

"I have so many amazing memories. Bus rides after wins, practices. Each team, there's always funny little things that happen throughout the years. You've got players that do funny things, players that hit big shots. The thing I've loved the most is those moments when some kid stepped up to the plate and makes a huge play, gets a big rebound, takes a big charge. That's when I smile and say 'that's what that kid has worked for'."

Another potential milestone she will reach, guaranteed, is coaching her 100th game at Metamora, which is a bigger deal than some may think. See, only two other coaches in program history, Chuck Danner (104) and Kathy Wainman (263) have eclipsed the 100 mark for games at the helm of the Lady Redbirds basketball program.

That 100th game will occur on Friday, January 12th, at Morton against the Lady Potters. The varsity game is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 pm.
