The Delone Catholic girls' basketball team cruised to another easy victory on Thursday night.

That's hardly news anymore for the powerhouse Squirettes squad.

However, there was some big news to emerge from Delone's 65-11 win over visiting Littlestown. The Squirettes' long-time coach, Gerry Eckenrode, picked up his 500th career victory with the program, against just 140 losses.
