Eagles head coach becomes the 5th in Section V to reach the milestone



Irondequoit, New York – As Irondequoit topped Wayne 55-43, Chris Cardon become the fifth coach in Section V history to reach 500 career wins.

The Eagles pushed out to a 53-35 lead with five minutes remaining and looked like they would cruise into a milestone victory after Irondequoit led just 34-31 after three quarters. But Devon Forrest and Cam Blankenberg hit back-to-back three-pointers to make it just a two-point game.

He called timeout and whatever he said in the huddle did the trick as Irondequoit ended the game on a 12-2 win to pick up the victory.

Cardon was honored with a postgame ceremony featuring a video with former players and coaches as well as his coaching adversaries congratulating him on the achievement.

He celebrated by showing off his best dance moves, much to the delight of his players.

Wayne fell to 13-7 on the season and is currently slated to be the third seed in the A2 bracket.

Irondequoit ends the regular season with a 14-6 record and is currently fourth in the Class A1 standings.
