Dillard girls' basketball coach Marcia Pinder named National Coach of the Year

Fresh off leading the Dillard girls' basketball team to its third consecutive state title, legendary Panthers coach Marcia Pinder has been named the RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA National High School Coach of the Year.

Pinder, the winningest coach in state history with a record of 804-175, will be invited to coach in the WBCA High School All-America Game on March 31 in Denver as part of the award. The game will be played at 6:30 p.m. as part of the events on NCAA Women's Final Four weekend.

Pinder has led Dillard to a Broward County-best seven state titles during her 35-year career. The number of championships is one shy of the state's all-time record held by Jacksonville Ribault. The "three-peat" achieved last week in Lakeland is Dillard's first.

This has nothing to do with this artical, but I would like to bring to all the football coaches attention that. That coach parnell is a back stabbing coach, he has no loyality to any program he has ever coached at he was told to leave from Booker T and then came to coral reef and then jumps to Palmetto HS, he is a hate Monger and he will only cause trouble were ever he coaches at he is poison.
