Congratulations to Maynor

Eric Maynor had the spotlight Thursday night when the VCU guard hit the game-winner to beat Duke.

Saturday it was Haughton High coach Glen Maynor's chance to soak up a little praise. The former Airline High and Northwestern State pitcher earned career win No. 300 when Haughton beat Parkway 18-2 in the Benton Touranment.

Maynor's win total is a product of both his longevity and his ability to adjust. The latter was honed under longtime Airline coach Clay Bohanan and NSU mentor Jim Wells. As a pitcher, Maynor typified the crafty left-hander stereotype, beating hitters with location, not velocity.

He's had to adjust during his decade-plus at Haughton, winning with teams who bludgeoned their way to victories and those who had to run, pitch and play defense to get into the win column.

So, as one of our favorite cliches in the office goes, a tip of the cap to Glen Maynor.
