TOMLINSON LEADS TEAM TO GOLD MEDAL
Berkeley College women's basketball head coach Sharod Tomlinson led the New York City women's open squad to their first gold medal ever at the Empire State Games on Sunday with a 79 to 69 win in the final.
New York City hadn't even won a game for the last three years before Tomlinson led them to gold this year.
"He's done such a wonderful job so far at Berkeley that this is something we have come to expect, so I wasn't surprised when he sent me a picture of himself with a gold medal around his neck," said Brian Maher, athletic director of Berkeley College. "No one I know is more deserving."
