The Quest for 500 Wins
    January 11, 2021
    Coach Al Gooden has served as the Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach at Lawrence Central High School since 2014 and has been in education for over 35 years. This week, he stands to make history as the first African American Head Coach in Indiana High School Basketball to achieve 500 career wins, having come to the MSD of Lawrence Township with 392. He currently sits at 499 wins.

    Lawrence Central High School and the entire MSD of Lawrence Township community are proud to share with him in this historic moment. The Bears plan to celebrate Coach Gooden's monumental milestone at the first home game following this achievement, likely this Wednesday just before the second Marion County Tournament game.
