Congratulations to Mary Fleig, Millersville University's Womens Basketball Coach, on her 500th career win! Defeating Merrimac 75-59 at Pucillo Gymnasium yesterday, December 30th, she joins a prestigious group of successful coaches in Lancaster County including Elizabethtown's Women's Basketball coach Yvonne Kauffman (665 wins) and F&M's Men's Basketball coach Glenn Robinson (782 wins).
2010 marks the 21st year of of coaching at Millersville and she is still going strong.

Mary has led her team to NCAA Division II Tournament 8 of the past 13 years!
She has been named PSAC Coach of the year 6 times and has had nine 20-win seasons!

So congratulations again to Mary and her assistant coach for 18 years, Darlene Newman!
