On the Sidelines: McKnight’s Thirst Quencher

athletics message logoGary McKnight, who earlier this season notched his 1,000 career victory (all as the Mater Dei boys’ basketball head coach), got quite the surprise recently when he was presented with his own commemorative bottle of Gatorade in front of the student body at an all-school rally in the Meruelo Athletic Center.  The limited edition bottle of Gatorade has its flavor named “Monarch” and notes McKnight’s many accomplishments. IMG_0053

In 33 years, McKnight’s teams have won 32 league championships (31 on the Gatorade bottle because he won his 32nd after the label went to print), 22 section titles, 11 state crowns, and one mythical national championship.  Certainly, as Gatorade found out, those numbers are subject to change.
