Medina High School’s Boys’ Basketball Coach Bill Carter has been named the winner of the Jerry Petitgone Award at the University of Dubuque this year, a post on the Medina Independent School District Facebook page said.
The award is presented to an alumnus of the university who has achieved outstanding success in the coaching profession.
Carter, who has coaches for 38 years, including 12 at the college level, reached the milestone 600-win plateau when Medina defeated Nueces Canyon in basketball last January. He also has won back-to-back state championships in his basketball coaching career, the MISD notice said.
Carter received the award at the university’s homecoming celebration earlier this month in Iowa.
