Susie Shelton has been the girls basketball coach at Mountain Heritage since 1999.

Mountain Heritage has a little extra motivation for Wednesday afternoon’s girls championship finals of the Mountaineer Holiday Classic at Tuscola.

Coach Susie Shelton is sitting at 299 career wins ahead of the 1:30 p.m. basketball game between the Cougars (8-1) and Roberson (7-3). The two teams have played twice before this season with both nonconference games going in Mountain Heritage’s favor — 50-34 on Nov. 17 in Burnsville and 60-39 on Dec. 1 in Skyland.

Shelton has been the coach at her alma mater since 1999 and won her 200th game in 2011. That was a school record at the time.

The Cougars have won 29 of their last 30 regular-season games with the lone defeat coming Dec. 8 at Reynolds by a 60-43 score.
