Do You Know that earlier today it was reported that a legendary coach in our state has stepped down.  Who is that person?


D. Gaters courtesy of Sun TimesDorothy Gaters of Chicago Marshall High School has decided to end her career as the only girls' basketball coach the Commandos have ever known.  Her run has spanned 45 seasons that saw the program win 10 IHSA State Championships and 24 total Final Four trophies.  There will never be another Coach Gaters.  Her 1153-217 mark is the best ever in Illinois prep history--boys or girls.  Coach Gaters has set a standard not only for the city of Chicago but for the state of Illinois and our nation.  She has done it all with grace and class.  A huge thanks to Dorothy on her commitment and dedication to the kids of Marshall.  We have all enjoyed the journey.  From the IBCA and the Basketball Museum of Illinois, we wish Coach Dorothy Gaters nothing but the best for the next phase of her life.
