With their win on Monday February 25th against Wingate, Coach Jim Gantt now has 800 wins. That is a lot of practices, players,  home runs, foul balls, strikeouts, and travel.  In those 800 wins Coach Gantt has watched Catawba have 13,073 hits, score 10,223 runs, and hit 1,417 home runs. If you add in the opponents, Coach Gantt has watched 24,032 hits, 2,526 home runs, and 16,659 runs scored in his 800 coaching wins.

Very impressive accomplishment for Coach Jim Gantt. When you do see him make sure you tell him congratulations.  800 career wins and they were all at Catawba.
