"From her days at Rolling Meadows High School when she was a three-sport standout, Hersey girls basketball coach Mary Fendley has always been a household name in the local high sports world.

On Tuesday night at the house of 2000 Class 4A state champion Buffalo Grove, Fendley placed herself in some championship company herself. 

With the Huskies' 55-33 victory over the Bison on Tuesday night, Fendley joined at least 28 other girls basketball coaches in Illinois who have won 500 games according to the IHSA record books.

Fendley's 24-year record at Hersey now stands at 500-204.

Her assistant for all 24 years has been Julia Barthel, the school's girls athletic director."
