The Incredible Women’s History of Sherri Tynes

Sherri Tynes, a four-time Mid-Eastern Coach of the Year and the first woman to be inducted into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame, had an illustrious career in sports. She played multiple sports in high school before attending East Tennessee State University to play basketball. Her coaching career began at various universities before she transitioned to high school coaching at Laney High School, where she coached a variety of sports including men’s and women’s golf, women’s basketball, and both fast and slow-pitch softball.

Tynes has amassed an impressive coaching record of 423-189 throughout her high school coaching career. Her accomplishments include winning the North Carolina High School State Championship in fast-pitch softball, being named the head coach of the North Carolina East/West All-Star Game, and being inducted into both the Airport High School Sports Hall of Fame and the Laney High School Sports Hall of Fame. Despite retiring from coaching, Tynes remains active and dedicated to fitness, engaging in activities like swimming, cycling, and weight training on a daily basis.

Tynes credits her passion for fitness to her background as a physical educator and coach. She has always been involved in sports since a young age with encouragement from her father. The local legend will be honored with her induction into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame on May 19th, acknowledging her significant contributions to sports in the community.
