Girls basketball: Tuesday/Wednesday recap

Major milestone

Northeast coach Will White won the 400th game of his coaching career against Hollins on Wednesday. 

This is White’s second job coaching girls basketball in the county. For eight seasons (2002-11) he coached at Boca Ciega, compiling a 193-45 record with six district championships and seven straight 20-win seasons. He also kept intact the Pirates’ streak of making the playoffs for 19 seasons, the third-longest streak in the state at the time. In three of his final four seasons, White led Boca Ciega to the state final four.

After stepping down in 2011, White took a four-month hiatus before taking over the Vikings. He inherited a Northeast program that averaged seven win per season during its existence and made the playoffs just once in 1986.

The Vikings have won at least 16 games in each of the last eight seasons under White. He also transformed the program into a consistent title contender with a rosters mostly of girls who have played their high school career with the Vikings.
