- Margaret Wade (basketball coach)
Lily Margaret Wade (December 30, 1912 in McCool, Mississippi, USA – February 16, 1995 in Cleveland, Mississippi, USA) was an American basketball player and coach. She played high school basketball for Cleveland High School and college basketball for Delta State University in 1930-1932. The women's basketball program was discontinued at that college after she graduated. She coached Cleveland High School's girls basketball team for 25 seasons with a 453-89-6 record. Her teams won the Bolivar County Championships and entered the North Mississippi tournament fourteen out of her last fifteen years, and came in second in the state championships three consecutive years. Her girls' track team won the state championship in 1959.
When Delta State restarted the women's basketball team in 1973, Wade became the coach for them. They won three consecutive national championships at the AIAW Women's Basketball Tournament in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Those seasons included a 51-game winning streak. She also coached a future Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Lusia Harris-Stewart.
Cleveland High School's Margaret Wade Gymnasium, on the campus of Margaret Green Junior High School, was named in her honor in 1977. The top women's collegiate player is now awarded the Wade Trophy named after her. She was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1985 and in the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 1999.
A Mississippi Historical Marker honoring Margaret Wade was unveiled on the front lawn of Cleveland High School on October 11, 2008.
