Montgomery Wins No.800 at John Marshall

Posted: Updated:

Legendary John Marshall baseball coach Bob Montgomery chalked up career win No.800 in his team's season-opener on Saturday afternoon thanks to an 11-1, five-inning victory, over visiting Wheeling Central in Glen Dale.

Montgomery, the winningest coach in OVAC history by far, is the second member of the 800-win club in West Virginia prep history. Montgomery, 66, in his 39th season as head coach, is chasing John Lowery, who is still at the helm of Jefferson High School, and has over 1,100 career wins and counting.
