{{featured_button_text}}

CEDAR RAPIDS – Waterloo West head coach Dr. Anthony Pappas moved a step closer to joining an elite group of Iowa high school girls’ basketball coaches Friday.

In a 66-53 victory over Cedar Rapids Prairie, the third-ranked Wahawks (9-1) helped Pappas earn his 599th career victory.

In a 44th year career which includes stops at Mallard and North Fayette, Pappas owns a career mark of 599-337. He could earn win 600 Saturday against Fort Dodge at Siddens Gymnasium in a game that tips off at 6:30 p.m.

When Pappas earns his 600th win he will become just the 15th coach in state history to reach that mark. 

Friday, West sunk 10 3-pointers as it gradually built its lead. The Wahawks led 32-20 at halftime and 50-33 after three quarters.

Sahara Williams had 25 points, including 5 3-pointers, and Halli Poock had 21 with 4 3-pointers. Brooklynn Smith chipped in 15 points.

“We played a good Prairie team,” Pappas said. “We started to pull away in the third, but Prairie scrapped the whole game and didn’t allow us to pull away.”
