SANDERSON ATHLETICS HALL OF FAMEJENNIE ADAMSCOACH1974-1989HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2014Jennie Adams began teaching Physical Education at Sanderson High School in 1974. Schoollife was different forty years ago. For example, she was among the first group teachers inRaleigh who taught Physical Education classes with boys and girls in the same class!Jennie came to Sanderson just two years after Title IX legislation was passed - openingdoors to women and girls in sports programs at U.S. schools and colleges. Even with Title IXenacted, girls programs needed advocates to enable them to get off the ground, mature, andflourish. Jennie was one of several coaches at Sanderson who saw to it that girls would havethe same athletic opportunities and outcomes as the boys. Those who take girls sportsprograms for granted today have people like Jennie Adams to thank for removing barriersback in the seventies. Coach Adams coached gymnastics at Sanderson for 15 years (197475 through 1988-89), girls tennis for 3 years (1975-76 through 1977-78), and softball for 2years (1977-78 and 1986-87).Gymnastics is the sport in which her teams excelled. When she began at Sanderson, thesport was in its infancy as a conference-sponsored interscholastic sport. Over the course ofher fifteen years at the helm, the Spartans earned six conference championships.

Along the wayCoach Adams-led teams earned a pile of trophies. But more importantly, the coach left herlegacy by teaching hundreds of young women how to compete in the athletic arena and in life with skill, grace, anddignity. She provided them opportunities for leadership and responsibility, not to mention growth as athletes, andguided them through the maze of their teenage years and young adulthood.Although Jennie no longer coaches, she is still hard-wired to the N.C. gymnastics community. She has been the faceof North Carolina Gymnastics for the last 25 years as the State Chair of NC USA Gymnastics. In her role as the chiefadministrator, she coordinates the program statewide to serve over 3500 gymnasts at more than 90 private gyms.ureisngJtldcaphCmyNofTqShe is also an accomplished gymnastics judge,having atedintah lvofinaNteudgJ. She was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Region 8 (the South) Hallof Fame in 2012.Jennie is native of New Bern. She earned a BS in Health and Physical Education from UNC-Greensboro in 1970.She and her husband Dale currently reside in Kennels Beach in Pamlico County near Arapahoe, llofFamerBetsyCook(SHS98)1 Lanzen Coach Adams was clearly one of the most influential and inspiring mentors I had, and I am proud to call her myfriend too. Coach Adams not only helped guide her students and athletes through the rigors of balancing schoolwork and athletics, but she also taught them many valuable life lessons and provided some incredible opportunities.I still remember Coach Adams taking me and some of my fellow teammates to watch the U.S. Men’s and Women’sOlympic Trials in Salt Lake City. We watched some of our gymnastics idols compete, explored tabernacles and swamin the Great Salt Lake! Jennie guided our teams to State and Conference Championships and helped train countlessnumbers of us to become gymnastics judges. She was beside us through the good times and the sometimes roughwaters of high school life. I will be forever grateful for the wonderful memories of life with Coach Adams.

What I remember most about that experience is the closeness of that team. We did everything together both on and off the court.Beyond the closeness on the court and the pure team chemistry we ate lunch, went to soccer and football games, spent weekends going tomovies we just had unique chemistry. We did not have a “star” we just had consistency at every position and the determination tonever give up. I remember a very close match at Chapel Hill High School that was our toughest match of the playoffs and in the match, Iremember our team toughness and how we pushed to the end to pull out the victory even though they had a big crowd. I also remembercoming home late from the finals and the pep rally the next day wearing pieces of the championship net around our necks and feeling SOappreciated by our student body. That was the absolute BEST feeling in the world. I was so fortunate to be a part of it. It was CRAZY!!!

SANDERSON ATHLETICS HALL OF FAMEBILL HARRINGTONCOACH1968-1986HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2014Bill Harrington taught physical education and coached hundreds of students during a thirteenyear stay as a teacher at Daniels Junior High School in Raleigh from 1955 to 1968. The success hisfootball, basketball, and baseball teams had at Daniels made him a natural choice to behandpicked for the staff at Sanderson when the new high school opened in North Raleigh in 1968.He was the first head men’s basketball coach at Sanderson and held the position for 14 seasons –from 1968 until 1982.Bill was born in Greenville, NC on August 26, 1927. He was a three sport star in football,basketball, and baseball at Greenville High School. He served in the United States Army during theKorean War. He graduated with a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Education from theUniversity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Bill passed away in January of 2013 at the age of 85.He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Dot, daughters Anne and Carol, son Bill Jr., and fivegrandchildren. All three of his children graduated from Sanderson High School. In addition tobeing a loyal Tar Heel fan, Bill was an accomplished bridge player and dedicated much of his timein the service of the congregation at Hayes Barton Baptist Church. He was also an avid golfer andhad three lifetime holes-in-one!Bill’s tenure at Sanderson happened at a time when the quality of high school basketball was veryhighly regarded. The competition was fierce. Only the strongest teams won titles. Fortunately forSanderson, there was some instant success in men’s basketball. In fact, Sanderson made adramatic statement when it won its first ever game against Broughton at Holliday Gymnasium in1968-69. His 1972-73 team was probably his best. They went 21-5 and finished in second place in the regular seasonin the Eastern District III-4A Conference, but defeated Durham Hillside in the district tournament finals, 76-54, to earnSanderson’s first ever berth in the NCHSAA State Tournament. They were led by seniors Bobby Fogelman, MikeHouse, Mike Burton, Steve Rackley, junior Steve Kenney, and sophomore phenom, Dirk Ewing. Bill was honored bybeing selected as the coach of the East team in the 1979 NCCA East-West All-Star Game. He led the East to a 93-91victory in a thrilling game. Spartan Terry Teague played for the East in the game.Coach’s legacy is best summarized by recalling the memories of several players he coached. “Coach always had usprepared to play our best, even if we weren’t the more talented team. He had the ability to share his knowledge of theopponent with us in a way that would make a difference in our performance.” “Coach wasn’t afraid to discipline hisplayers – I have firsthand knowledge of this! He did the right thing by benching me and making me apologize to myteammates after I started an altercation at practice.” “In an era when PE teachers had to coach several sports, hefound time to treat us all like family.” “I witnessed two different styles of coaching during my days on the hardwood a high school coach who was a calm gentleman who seldom lost his temper and a college coach who was highlyvolatile and seemingly always angry. I sure did appreciate Coach Harrington’s approach.”Bill also coached Sanderson football the first two years the school was open, softball for seven years (1980-86), crosscountry for three seasons (1973-75), and golf for three seasons. He held at least one coaching post each year for thefirst 18 years in the life of the school. He was the first advisor for Sanderson’s chapter of the Fellowship of ChristianAthletes.Bill Junior’s (SHS 1977) memories of playing for his dad I played both golf and basketball all three years. I played JV basketball my first year and then varsity my junior and senior years when Dad wasmy coach. I played all three years on the varsity golf team and Dad was the coach those years. One of the things I am most grateful forhappened my junior year when I wasn’t going to play basketball - but as my Dad and coach he convinced me that it would be a mistake not toplay basketball so I did play that year and my senior year. I have a lot of great memories and learned a lot of lessons from playing so I’mgrateful that he convinced me that it was best for me. I think Dad treated me just like all of the other players and I had to earn my spot on boththe basketball team and golf team - basketball being probably a little more subjective and golf by the scores don’t lie! It was a great experiencein my life and I’m glad he was my Dad and my coach!
