FSU to honor Retton on Saturday

FAIRMONT — Prior to the debut of head coach Jerrod Calhoun, Fairmont State will pay tribute to legendary coach Joe Retton on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. Fairmont State will unveil a new banner to be hung in the arena that bears the coach’s name listing many of his accomplishments.  Retton coached at Fairmont State 1964-1982, won 12 WVIAC regular season championships and eight WVIAC Tournament championships, and made it to the NAIA Tournament on 12 occasions, including one apperance in the finals. He was twice named NAIA Coach of the Year and finished with a career record of 478-95, winning an astonishing 83.6 percent of his games.

 The ceremony will cap a full day of basketball that starts at 2 p.m. with Clarion vs. Concord in women’s basketball. Following that game, the women’s basketball team, led by Kaitlin Snyder, will take the court against IUP at 4 p.m. Head coach Steve McDonald’s team is the preseason favorite to win the WVIAC. Saturday’s action will conclude the WVIAC/PSAC Challenge that starts on Friday afternoon at Joe Retton Arena with Concord vs. IUP (1 p.m.) and Fairmont State vs. Clarion (3 p.m.)

 The men, under the direction of Calhoun, will then take the court for the first time this season at 7:30 p.m. against Ohio Eastern. The Fighting Falcons were picked to finish third in the WVIAC preseason poll.
