St. Louis area principal with cancer gets 100th coaching win
WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (AP) – A suburban St. Louis high school principal who is fighting brain cancer has marked his 100th win as a basketball coach.
Former players, coaches, faculty, students and the basketball team united Thursday to give Webster Groves High School principal Jon Clark his 100th win, something he was one victory shy of when he left his coaching position at Rolla High School in 1996.
The basketball team’s current head coach, Jay Blossom, organized the game with the help of faculty and students. The basketball team played Rockwood Summit, a team it expected and needed to defeat to continue a 13-game winning streak.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Clark had surgery over the school’s winter break to remove a second malignant tumor from his brain.
