Sherri Tynes, a four-time Mid-Eastern Coach of the Year and the head coach of the North Carolina East/West All-Star Game, is being inducted into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame this year. She is also known for her impressive feat of winning the first-ever North Carolina High School State Championship in fast-pitch softball.

Despite retiring from coaching, Tynes remains active and dedicated to fitness. She engages in activities such as swimming, cycling, and weight training on a daily basis, crediting her passion for fitness to her background as a physical educator and coach.

Tynes’ coaching career spanned various universities before transitioning to high school coaching at Laney High School. Over the years, she coached men’s and women’s golf, women’s basketball, and both fast and slow-pitch softball. Her high school coaching record stands at an impressive 423-189 throughout her career.

Tynes attributes her success to the support she received from administrators, assistant coaches, student-athletes, and parents.
