The 600 Club

A coach reaching 600 wins is cause for celebration. Two coaches from one school in a single season is reason to take note. But three coaches reaching that number—all within weeks of each other? Well, that’s one for the history books.
In January, men’s basketball head coach Tom Klusman ’76 ’78MBA became the first to join the club—a feat shared by just 15 coaches in NCAA Division II history.
A few weeks later, softball head coach Michelle Frew reached No. 599 and No. 600 during a doubleheader.
And then it happened again: Women’s basketball head coach Glenn Wilkes made a fast break during the Sunshine State Conference Tournament in March. The win made him the ninth head coach in Division II history to reach the milestone.
Their stories—and this milestone—offer examples of the dedicated leaders behind the Tars’ continued success.
