Coach James Frey took over the Lady Jets program in 2012. And as he chases his third straight Region championship, the magic number is 100.

Frey is looking to be the fastest coach in Lady Jets history to 100 wins. They lost his first opportunity for 100 against Georgia Highlands last week on the road.

Now they have shot to get a ball in the trophy case in front of their home crowd. 

Frey said the milestone is great, but he's focused on a three-peat.

"We've got 2 games a week for the rest of the year, and we've got to win them all," said Frey. "Being at home would be special. I think it would be really neat to win it in front of some of our folks."

Frey said getting back to the fundamentals of guarding on defense will be key for the region championship run, and for taking on an always tough Darton opponent.

"I have the utmost respect for Coach Henry," said Frey. "Like I just said she's won almost 500 games. She's a legend really at a lot of different levels as a player and coach. Ad so she always has her teams prepared. It's always just a fight to the end."

The game against Darton for his potential 100th win is in Americus on Wednesday.
