Karrmayne King had already gone through so many memorable milestones within the past year. The legendary Keswick Christian coach surpassed 500 career wins in volleyball. Three months later, she hit the 600 win career mark in girls basketball.
King was even featured in Sports Illustrated’s Faces in the Crowd.
This was her 31st season coaching both sports with the Crusaders. By staying, King became an institution at the school.
Now, she is a Florida High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame inductee.
The state’s governing body for high school sports informed the school on Wednesday of her inclusion in this year’s hall of fame class.
As a volleyball coach, King led Keswick Christian to two straight state semifinal appearances in 1998-99. This past season, she guided the Crusaders to their first region final appearance since 2001. King has an overall record of 507-372 in the sport.
In basketball, she led the program to six state semifinal appearances, the last one coming in February. Her 600th victory was one that got Keswick Christian into the state semifinals for the first time since 2000. King’s overall record in girls basketball: 600-271.
In the fall, King announced this past season would be her last coaching volleyball. She will remain as the school’s athletic director and girls basketball coach. King also will continue in her role as the director of the Keswick Suncoast Basketball Classic, which has been held for the past 35 years in boys basketball and 21 in girls basketball.
