Trenton's Mike Turner became the winningest hockey coach in MHSAA history Tuesday with his team's 6-0 victory over Wyandotte in a Division 2 Pre-Regional game. 

The win pushed Turner's career record to 624-122-41 and past East Kentwood's Ron Baum (623-219-30 from 1973-2007) into the top spot. Turner has coached Trenton from 1974-81 and again since 1995. 

His teams have won 10 MHSAA championships. Turner's 624 wins also rank fifth on the national hockey coaching list.
