COVINGTON, Ga. — Newton Rams coach Rick Rasmussen sounded off on the good feelings acquired from capturing his 300th win Saturday in a 74-65 win over Eastside. 

In addition to the 300-win milestone, Rasmussen has guided the Rams to five region championships, including three straight during the last three seasons. He’s also made three trips to the Final Four and three trips to the Elite Eight during his 14 years at the helm of Newton boys basketball.
