Paul Hatcher coached Robert E. Lee basketball for 43 years. He won 897 games and led the school to four state titles. It was from 2003-2006 that Coach Hatcher etched his name in the record books by winning 85 games in a row.
Journalist Patrick Hite chronicles this historic run in the new book “The Staunton Streak: Paul Hatcher’s Basketball Dynasty” with an introduction written by Paul’s son and current Lee basketball coach Jarrett Hatcher.
There will be a release event for the book on October 22 at R.E. Lee HS beginning with a memorabilia sale at 1 p.m. to support Lee Athletics. At 2 p.m. will be an exhibition game featuring former players from the 85-game streak. Following the game is a book signing with Paul Hatcher.
