South Walton girls basketball coach Kevin Craig already achieved one career milestone in the last year: induction into the FHSAA Hall of Fame.

He earned another Friday night at Arnold, one his team hopes to keep adding to in the coming days: 800 wins and counting.

Craig earned win No. 800 with a 75-35 victory over the Marlins, bringing the Seahawks record to 10-8 on the season.

His resume touts state championships at Fort Walton Beach in 1994 and 1999, a third at South Walton in 2013. Along the way, 24 playoff appearances and nine Final Fours.

In a feature with WJHG in September, Craig said his goals before retirement in three years include reaching 800 wins (check) and a tenth Final Four trip.
