I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Poth Pirette Basketball Coach Peggy Hosek. We talked about her 800 wins and how it felt to have come so far.

When questioned about the journey it took to achieve the 800th win, she simply replied that she doesn’t count her wins. It is her husband that counts the wins. Then, she went on to say the reason she coaches high school basketball is because she loves to work with young adults. She finds it fun and energizing and loves the wonderful experiences she shares with them. The things they do together are memorable, and she feels that she wouldn’t have 800 wins without the teams she has coached.

“Winning it all has to do with the girls, the friends, and the family, not just the coach. It is the girls that have to go out on the court game after game to get it done to win. So really the attention should be on the girls and all their hard work,” Hosek said.

After winning a whopping 800 games, I’m sure we are all asking ourselves the same question: How many more wins is she hoping for in the future?

“800 is just a number, but in all reality ... 804 is the number we really want,” Hosek said.

As for the basketball girls, 30 is the number they are aiming for because it would put them at a perfect season, winning state.

“Winning state will be a well-deserved accomplishment, since the girls work so hard,” Hosek said.

After having coached many successful games, I thought it necessary to ask if she still got nervous before games.

“Not that much anymore, I just get crabby and grumpy,” Hosek said. “It all depends on the game, if I get nervous. I mostly worry about decisions and if I am prepared enough. I usually just need time to make sure I am mentally prepared to make the good decisions it takes to win the game.”

Coach Hosek went on to talk about the journey. She said that it was a wonderful adventure filled with so many wonderful people and experiences because of the sport.

“Don’t get me wrong ... it was a lot of hard work, but well worth it,” Hosek said. “Work gives you a purpose anyways. It’s all worth the sacrifices.”

To sum it up ... Hosek said that part of the fun of making it happen has to deal with so many different memories with different people, involving a simple team experience or a win.

“It’s all about the relationship with the people and memories of working together.”
