After guiding the Glen Rock High School girls basketball team to its sixth straight 20-plus win season and fourth consecutive NJIC Colonial Division championship, coach David Mosconi has decided to give up the post he has held for 16 seasons.
Before a 53-50 overtime loss to Ramsey in the North 1, Group 2 state quarterfinals on March 4 that ended the Panthers’ season with a 21-7 record, Mosconi recorded his 300th coaching victory over Manchester, 54-45 on Feb. 26.
He concluded his tenure with a record of 301 wins and 122 losses, good for a win percentage of .712.
“It has been 16 years in Glen Rock, and I have had a blast coaching there,” Mosconi said. “The kids are great, and there are so many good times. We won a state-sectional championship, won five B-PSL championships, four NJIC championships and made it to the ‘Elite 8’ in the county one year.
“So, I guess it is time to move on and maybe find another challenge,” he added, “or just chase my grandchildren around.”
