Coach Milligan Reaches 100 Win Milestone
Jeremy Milligan, Cortland Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, reached an important milestone this week. After a tough game with county rival Homer that resulted in an overtime win, Milligan had won his 100th career game. Milligan wasn’t even aware that he had reached a milestone in his coaching career until assistant coach Tom Neugebaur announced it to the team.
Reflecting on the season, Milligan mentioned that he was just happy that the team was able to get in the 16 games that they did. Many high school teams in the area struggled to get in a full season because of COVID19 restrictions and scheduling problems. Thanks to the hard work from our Cortland Athletics Director Matt Wood, 16 games were scheduled and played.
Milligan was a Cortland basketball player himself. He also played a bit in college at St. Lawrence before going into coaching. He expressed how much he enjoyed coaching at the school where he played and now, after coaching for nine years he has reached the 100 win milestone.
