Former Perry Hall boys basketball coach George Panageotou has been named an assistant coach at Mercy under head coach Mary Ella Marion.
Panageotou stepped down from the Perry Hall position in April after leading the Gators to their second straight Class 4A state championship. In six seasons, he had a career 105-47 mark. Panageotou’s wife, Tricia, is a Mercy graduate.
Marion returns to the head coaching post after a five-year hiatus. From 1985 to 2013, she has a 389-322 career mark that ranks 13th on the area’s all-time list for most girls basketball coaching wins.
Last season, the Magic finished 7-12 overall and 4-8 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference under former coach Steve Anderson.
