GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (KDVR) — Cherry Creek High School’s head baseball coach has broken the state record for the number of career wins by a head baseball coach.

In a 6-5 victory over Grandview on Wednesday, the Bruins secured Marc Johnson’s 808th career victory. Johnson has been the head coach at Cherry Creek since 1973. He now holds a career mark of 808-205.

With Wednesday’s victory, he surpassed his former college teammate and longtime Eaton High School head coach Jim Danley.

Johnson was inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame in 2010. He has led the Bruins to eight state titles, six runner-ups and 32 Centennial League titles. Johnson also won five state titles in 28 years as the boys soccer coach from 1971-99.
