Clear Springs Coach Celebrates Milestone Victory
Pamela Crawford, Clear Springs High School head girls’ basketball coach, celebrated her 700th career win with her team during the season opener on Friday, November 5, 2021.
“The feeling was amazing,” said Coach Crawford. “Win one or win 700, I get to share this with the most amazing players and staff, that is just the greatest feeling.”
Crawford is in her 37th year of coaching and 24th year in Clear Creek ISD. She spent nine years coaching at Clear Brook High School before moving to the newly-built Clear Springs High School in 2007 to help develop the girls basketball program there.
“Watching these student athletes reach their full potential over the years in the game and being a part of them becoming strong, motivated and hardworking young ladies who go on to be incredible women is my favorite part of being a coach,” said Crawford.
Some of her top accolades over the years include a state semifinal berth in 2013 with Clear Springs, five region finals appearances, 16 district championships and 22 total playoff appearances with Clear Springs and Clear Brook. She was also named among the top 100 high school hoops coaches in the 100-year history of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) in 2021.
“I’m living a dream,” she said. “My career has allowed me the opportunity to be a part of lives of some incredible student athletes, amazing coaches and inspiring districts. I have been truly blessed.”
Crawford joins the short list of coaches who have achieved 700 wins within Clear Creek ISD and across the state.
“Pam Crawford is a legend on and off the court,” said CCISD Athletic Director Kirby Killingsworth. “She has been a driving force for athletics and women in athletic leadership roles. She is a true asset to CCISD, and it is an honor to work with her daily.”
