CENTERBURG — For one team, it was the celebration of a coaching milestone.

For another, it represented the search to find some meaning to the 2012-13 season.

Centerburg’s 47-32 defeat of Danville on Tuesday wasn’t just another Mid-Buckeye Conference win for the Trojans. It marked the 300th career victory for Todd Nauman as Centerburg’s head girls basketball coach.

In his 20th year at the helm, Nauman is just as motivated as he was before his first win.

“I appreciate the fact that I’ve had a lot of good players over the past 20 years,” said Nauman. “If we were to sit down and talk about that, I’d have to give you a list of 20 to 25 kids who were a big part of this. But I’m not going to dwell on that. It’s nice, but it’s these kids — it’s their record that matters.”

Nauman’s 300th win came as his Trojans remain one game back in the MBC standings, behind Johnstown and Utica. This win was much like many of his others — Centerburg (15-5, 9-3 MBC) jumped out to a huge lead and held on, allowing the score to get close only after emptying his bench.
