“Success is a Choice” is the topic of the next Old Town Hall Lecture tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. The event features men’s basketball Head Coach Jim Larranaga, and is sponsored in conjunction with the Fairfax Police Youth Club.

Larranaga has a 65-52 record in his four years at George Mason. The past three seasons have returned the Patriots to prominence in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). The CAA and the National Association of Basketball Coaches District 4 named Larranaga Coach of the Year. He was also selected state Coach of the Year by the Virginia Sports Information Directors and the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Currently in his fifth season in Fairfax, Larranaga is preparing for the next challenge of taking the program to a new level of success.

The lecture is held on the second floor of Old Town hall, at the corner of University Drive and Main Street in the City of Fairfax. It is free and open to the public, and refreshments are provided. Free parking is available in the lot on the corner of University Drive and North Street. For more information, call Traci Claar at (703) 993-8846.
