Coach Gina Maher Makes History With 700th Career Win
Bulldogs’ girls basketball coach Gina Maher has reached a major milestone in her career – 700 wins. She also made history, becoming the first girls basketball coach in New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s history to reach that milestone.
Maher, who has been coaching the Bulldogs for 43 years at Irvington High School, reached the milestone when her team defeated White Plains High School, 65-50, in the championship game of the William Warnock Tournament on Dec. 1. She credited her achievement to the strong women she has coached over the years, as well as the support of the District, community and her family.
“I have been fortunate to have coached amazing student-athletes who are all an integral part of our basketball family,” Maher said. “It is their achievement because without each of them there is no milestone.”
