CHARLOTTE – Providence Day girls basketball coach Josh Springer netted his 300th coaching win at the helm of the Chargers when they defeated Charlotte Christian on Jan. 18.
Springer accomplished the milestone in just his 12th season at Providence Day, where he’s averaged 25 wins per season and won at an 85 percent winning percentage.
During that time, Springer was has captured 11 consecutive CISAA championships and won 108 consecutive conference games. His teams have captured nine NCISAA championships – including eight straight at one point – and one runner-up finish.
Two of those teams ended the season nationally ranked. The 2011-12 team was ranked No. 15 in USA Today’s final poll and the 2015-16 team finished 25th in the country, according to ESPN and No. 13 in USA Today’s final poll.
At Providence Day, Springer has helped develop 15 players who have gone on to play at the college level, including 11 NCAA Division I players, four N.C. Gatorade Players of the Year winners, three USA gold medalists and two McDonald’s All-Americans.
“Our program motto since the day I was hired has been, ‘It’s Not About Me,’’ Springer said. “Personally, I believe in serving Christ, then others, then self. Professionally, our goal has been to have a program that sacrifices personal goals for the good of the program. A huge thank you to the Providence Day administration, teachers and our support staff for their continuous support of our vision, striving to be the best girls’ basketball program in North Carolina.”
