A lot of girls score 1,000 points in their careers. Not many score 1,000 points and get 1,000 rebounds. Six-foot, Winona State-bound senior Hannah McGlone is a few rebounds from becoming the first at Streamwood. “Hannah is the most versatile post player I have ever coached,” George Rosner said. “She plays inside and out. She handles the ball. She blocks shots. She plays great defense. She is a great team leader. She is like a coach on the floor.”
Dorothy Gaters does not keep track, but the state’s all-time winningest coach is closing in on career victory No. 1,000 after Marshall defeated Simeon 56-39 Saturday to reach the quarterfinals of the Chicago Public School tournament. The win was No. 995 for Gaters, who has won eight state titles and produced 18 high school All-Americans and five WNBA players including gold-medal winning Olympian Cappie Pondexter. Ironically, Gaters became head coach at Marshall in 1975 because no one else at the school wanted the job.
Speaking of legends, former Daily Herald sports editor Bob Frisk, a pioneer in providing coverage for girls sports, was honored between Friday’s boys and girls basketball games between Prospect and Hersey in Mount Prospect. Frisk was recently named a recipient of the IHSA’s Distinguished Media Service Award. Frisk, who retired in 2008, began his sports writing career while a student at Arlington High School in the 1950s.
