GA coach Sherri Retif wins 500th game, and Maggie Lucas scores 2,000th point



Germantown Academy coach Sherri Retif won her 500th game yesterday, thanks, at least in part, to a player who scored her 2,000th point in the same game.
The Patriots, ranked No. 1 in the Inquirer Top 10, used a big fourth quarter to beat No. 10 Archbishop Wood, 72-61, in Ft. Washington on a day of milestones for coach and star player Maggie Lucas.
Lucas, who is headed to Penn State, scored on a jumper in the fourth quarter to reach the mark. She becomes only the 19th girl in the history of Southeastern Pennsylvania to reach 2,000 and the second all-time leading scorer in school history. Lucas needed 29 points to reach 2,000 coming into the game. Her 2,006 places is second only to Laura Kurz (2005 grad, who finished with 2,247 career points).
Lucas scored 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Patriots rallied from a 46-43 deficit.
Retif is in her 12th season at Germantown Academy and has won 12 Inter-Ac League titles. She was also coach at Ursuline Academy in Louisiana prior to her stint in Ft. Washington.
