October 17, 2007

It was a joyous night for the Hagerstown Community College athletic program this year when veteran women's basketball coach Marlys Palmer notched the 500th win of her career with a 68-55 win over Harford Community College. It took 28 years for Palmer, a graduate of Southern Fulton High School in nearby Warfordsburg, Pa., to reach the lofty goal. She also is approaching 800 wins as the Lady Hawks' volleyball coach. Palmer is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XX Hall of Fame. It's estimated that she's taught or coached more than 8,000 students during her tenure at HCC.
