Coach Gingerich Honored
On Tuesday, December 20, 2016 the players, managers, and coaches from the 1992 basketball team were invited back to campus to be recognized. Hillcrest Union was packed on this historic night as IMS celebrated the 25 year anniversary of their State Championship. To honor Dwight Gingerich’s 34 years as basketball coach at IMS, it was announced that the basketball court will officially be named Dwight Gingerich Court. With an overall record (at the start of the season) of 621-174, this put him 10th overall and 6th for active coaches in the IHSAA. His teams made it to the state tournament 12 times. They won in 1992 and were Runner Up in 1991, 1998, 2005, 2007. The ‘Dwight Way’ of fundamentals, hard work ethic, respect for one another, team play, and selflessness has been embraced by many IMS student athletes over the years. It is because of the impact Dwight has had on the IMS community that he is deserving of this honor.
