High School Hoops: Neshannock coach released from hospital

NEW CASTLE — Neshannock High boys basketball coach John Corey was released from UPMC-Presbyterian hospital yesterday.

Corey was rushed to Jameson Hospital on Monday night with an undisclosed illness and was transferred to UPMC-Presbyterian in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. He remained there until yesterday afternoon.

“The tests were negative, and they’re still monitoring some of his vitals,” Neshannock co-athletic director Bob Burkes said. “The results from the tests were the best that we could have possibly hoped for. He’s still feeling the effects from what occurred, but he’s doing much better. He’s resting comfortably at home.”

Corey, 33, is in his fourth year coaching the Lancers, leading them to playoff appearances in each of his first three seasons.

Neshannock defeated Laurel, 77-53, on Tuesday, thanks in part to an inspired effort by senior guard John Sansone. Sansone originally wasn’t supposed to play because of an ankle injury but wanted to give it a try in honor of Corey. After being cleared by athletic trainer Barb Kennard, Sansone responded with 27 points, including seven 3-pointers. Assistant coach Ken Locke served as interim coach for the Lancers and will continue to until Corey can rejoin the team.

“We’re not sure when his return will be,” Burkes said. “Hopefully, if things move rapidly, he could return in some capacity next week. But we’re still not sure about that yet.”

The nature of the illness was not disclosed.
