Referee Jack Plunkett Passes Away

http://www.philly.com/inquirer/breaking/sports_breaking/20100112_Chestnut_Hill_Academy_football_coach_dies.html

Long time women's college basketball referee Jack Plunkett passed away yesterday in a suburban Philadelphia hospital. From what I've been able to gather from varous sources, Plunkett suffered a freak injury a few weeks ago and was recovering from surgery.

Over the years, Plunkett refereed many women's NCAA D1 basketball games, including last year's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship Tournament in Albany, NY. I'm sure many people can relate to the feeling one has when looking to find out WHO the referees are going to before a game you are about to watch. For many years, when I saw Jack Plunkett enter the gym, I knew things were going to be "OK".

My condolences go out to his wife and family. He will be missed by many.
