Hampshire boys basketball coach Bob Barnett remained hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering two heart attacks earlier in the day.
A physical education and drivers education teacher, Barnett was at the high school Tuesday morning when he realized something was wrong.
I started getting a tingling up the arm, got dizzy and got a little short of breath, so we called the ambulance to take me over to St. Joes, Barnett said from his room at Provena St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin. They took an (electrocardiogram) and took me up for an angioplasty. I had another one during the angioplasty.
But we got it and they got the clot out, so everything is good.
Barnett said he will undergo more tests today to make sure everything is all right and Ill probably be released.
Hampshires veteran coach was scheduled to begin his 11th season at the school and his 26th season overall Tuesday night in the season opener against Rockford Lutheran at the Sycamore Holiday Tournament. Barnett won his 400th career game last season. He intends to resume coaching upon recovering.
Ill get back out there soon, Barnett said.
