First Sanderson basketball coach passes away

Posted January 17, 2013

Sanderson High School’s first men’s basketball coach died last week at the age of 85.

Bill Harrington, who guided Sanderson’s basketball program when the school opened during the 1968-69 academic year, coached at the Raleigh school for 14 seasons. He also coached softball, golf and cross country during his career. He had also been a successful coach at the junior high school level prior to that at Daniels High School in Raleigh.

Harrington was born in Greenville, N.C., and earned both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution may be made to Hayes Barton Baptist Church, 1800 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27608.
