The word "coach" isn't gender based. Either a man or women can carry the title when guiding a team or player.

Men coach the men and most of the time, even the girls, while women coaches typically conform to the norm and stay with their own gender.

That's where Cambridge Junior Varsity head coach Sheryl Weber stands out. Three years ago, former boy's varsity head coach Gene Ford changed things up when he hired Weber to take over the boy's freshman team.

Boy's H.S. Basketball Scores
West Muskingum 40
Rosecrans 27

Martin played a season-high 45 minutes, while shooting 13-23 from the field, 4-10 from three...
