Grovetown, GA (WJBF) -- When it comes to Grovetown girls basketball, Dip Metress makes the move from the sideline to the stands. The GRU Augusta men's basketball coach's daughter Elizabeth is a freshman on the Warriors basketball team. Dip says when he gets the chance to attend his daughter's game, he's no longer Coach Metress, he's just a proud father.
He says he's much more proud of his daughter's grades than anything she does on the court. But he does appreciate that she can learn some fundamentals that he says he has a hard time teaching "to 19 year old men."
Dip will get a chance to watch Elizabeth at least one more time this season. Grovetown hosts Starrs Mill in the first round of the GHSA 5A state playoffs Friday at 5:30.
