LEXINGTON, N.C. — North Davidson High School softball coach Mike Lambros has passed away.

Lambros, who had been battling stage-four pancreatic cancer for the last 14 months, led the Black Knights program for more than 35 years.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, Lambros entered hospice care at his Davidson County home several weeks ago before he started to take a turn for the worse last week.

“He started declining quite a bit mid- to late last week,” Sharon Lambros said. “On Friday morning, they said it could be hours.”

Lambros has won more than 800 games and two state championships.

Davidson County Schools released a statement Friday morning on Lambros passing:

The Davidson County Schools family is so grateful for the thirty-five years that Mike Lambros shared his teaching, talents, and coaching abilities with our students, teachers, and community members. Although we have lost a very special person, we celebrate his legacy. Coach Lambros was passionate throughout his life to do what he loved the most, teaching and coaching. We are beyond thankful for the positive influence he has had on so many. Our hearts reach out with sincere condolences to Mike’s family during this very difficult time.

The North Davidson softball team won the state championship in early June.
