When the Poth Pirettes host the Stockdale Lady Brahmas this Friday, Feb. 1, it will mark the final regular-season home game for longtime Pirette basketball Coach Peggy Hosek. After more than 30 years, Hosek has decided to hang up her whistle and retire, making 2013 her final season.

To help make it a special night, past players are being asked to attend this Friday’s game, and to help celebrate her storied career. In addition, the entire community is invited to attend the game and to cheer on Hosek and her Pirette basketball team.

Hosek will undoubtedly be missed, as she leaves a big pair of shoes to fill. Not even including this season, in which the team stands ready to make another solid playoff run, Hosek’s record is impressive. In addition to winning more than 800 games, a milestone she hit last season, Hosek has a postseason resume unmatched by few others. During her 30-plus years in Poth, Hosek led the Pirettes to 21 district championships and 27 bi-district wins, and the team has 26 area championships to its credit. Hosek guided her team to the regional tournament 25 times -- meaning her team was among the top 16 in the state 25 times. Hosek had 18 teams reach the regional finals, and 12 of those teams won the region title and earned trips to the state tournament. Hosek guided the Pirettes to three state finals appearances, and Poth has two state championships! What a career!

Hosek and the Pirettes will tip off at 6 p.m. this Friday in Poth. The team will then play its final regular-season game in Luling Feb. 2, and will then prepare for one final run at a state title under Hosek.
