Jim Rains Rains When Rains inherited the Lady Colonel basketball team, the program had never had a winning record. When he left, his teams had won a state title, a regional title, and had a regional runner-up fi nish, while taking home four district championships. In his eight years at the helm of the program, his teams amassed a 194-49 record, an 80-percent winning clip. His teams still own the four-best records in Lady Colonel history. Rains’ seven 20-win seasons are nearly half of the program’s 15 total. Rains came back and coached the Williamsburg Lady Yellow Jacket basketball program in 2006 and stayed four years while compiling a 63-44 record.
