A Great Day to be a VOL

Friday, February 6, 2009

Last night will be one for the record books no doubt... having her 2nd attempt this week to reach her 1,000th win, Pat Summitt's Lady Vols dominated Georgia in a 73-43 win, securing her place in history as the most winningest coach in Division 1 Basketball EVER. She passed Bobby Knight a few years ago at 900, but this is just the icing on the cake... she was quoted last night saying "Records are meant to be broken," but I don't think this is one we will see outdone in our lifetime (at least I hope not). With thousands of fans in the arena and on her homecourt named "The Summitt", streamers of orange and white filled the air, while fans cheered and sang "Rocky Top" for the beloved coach. This win comes with an even sweeter deal as Pat announced she just signed another contract keeping her in Knoxville through 2014... guess that will mean a few more opportunities to add to her list of National Championships, huh?? Joined by Bruce Pearl, Phillip Fulmer, and numerous other coaches and close friends, you could see the delight and gratefulness on her face... such a great day to be a TENNESSEE VOL!
