Cary names basketball court for Yow

Posted January 9, 2009

— The gymnasium at the Herb Young Community Center has been named in honor of North Carolina State University womens basketball coach Kay Yow.

Town leaders wanted to honor Yow, a Cary resident, for her contributions to women's athletics.

N.C. State officials announced this week that Yow wouldn't coach the rest of this season as she battles a recurrence of breast cancer.

    A nice gesture. My prayers are with her as she continues her battle.
