The Incredible Women’s History of Sherri Tynes

Sherri Tynes, a remarkable woman who has had an incredible career in sports, is being inducted into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame this year. Throughout her career, Tynes has achieved numerous accolades and milestones, including being named the Mid-Eastern Coach of the Year four times and head coach of the North Carolina East/West All-Star Game.

Her accomplishments in fast-pitch softball are particularly noteworthy as she was the first coach to win the North Carolina High School State Championship in that sport. Her achievements have earned her inductions into both the Airport High School Sports Hall of Fame and the Laney High School Sports Hall of Fame.

Despite retiring, Tynes remains active and dedicated to fitness, engaging in activities such as swimming, cycling, and weight training on a daily basis. She credits her passion for fitness to her background as a physical educator and coach. Tynes has always been involved in sports from a young age with encouragement from her father. In high school, she played multiple sports before playing basketball at East Tennessee State in college.

Tynes’ coaching career began at various universities before transitioning 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. Over her 30 years as a high school coach, Tynes amassed an impressive record of 423 wins out of 612 games.

Tynes attributes her success to the support she received from administrators, assistant coaches, student-athletes, and parents throughout her career. She considers herself fortunate to have had such a strong support system that enabled her to achieve all that she did during her time on the sidelines. On May 19th
