Trish McNutt Green To be Inducted Into Camden County Sports Hall of Fame

Trish GreenTrish McNutt Green, a 1982 GCHS graduate who has been part of seven state championship girls basketball teams as both a player and coach, will be inducted into the Camden County Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, October 25, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill.

Trish played for Gloucester Catholic from 1978 to 1982. She was the starting point guard on two Group I state championship teams. Driven to make her teams succeed, Trish was an exceptional leader and demonstrated unselfish play at all times. Although she had very talented players around her, her style of play made them better. Players such as Mary Klinewski, Michele Jensen and Lisa Angelotti all enjoyed enhanced careers due to the point guard skills that Trish possessed.

Trish was known for her scoring but for her amazing court vision that enabled her to feed passes to teammates for wide-open layups and jump shots. She could score when called upon — she was the leading scorer in her final game in winning the 1982 Group I state championship against Morris Catholic.

The Courier-Post named Trish as the South Jersey Player of the year for the 1981/1982 season. She accepted a scholarship to Fresno State University due to her excellent play and accomplishments at the high school level. Unfortunately, her college career ended too soon with a devastating knee injury.

Trish is also the most successful girl’s basketball coach in South Jersey history. As head coach, she won five state championships at Haddonfield Memorial High School – 1993, 1994, 1997, 1998, and 1999. No other girls coach in SJ history has won five state championships.
