Former Winfield High boys basketball coach Pat McGinnis has been named the new girls basketball coach for the Generals, WHS athletic director Will Isaacs confirmed Tuesday night.
At the time he stepped down as Winfield boys hoops coach in 2014, McGinnis had amassed a 210-111 record, four state tournament appearances and a Class AA state title in 2004. McGinnis also spent time as Winfield’s baseball coach, taking two Generals teams to the state tournament.
The Generals went 23-4 last season and reached the Class AA state semifinals under former coach Shawn Lucas, losing to Bluefield. Freshman Z.Z. Russell was named to the All-Kanawaha Valley first team, the Class AA All-State first team and was named Kanawha Valley Rookie of the Year.
