John Costello was a Hastings-on-Hudson teacher, coach, and community member. Coach Costello lead the Hastings Boys Basketball team to over 450 career wins, 7 league championships, and 4 Section One Titles. John Costello was a member of the Westchester Basketball Hall Of Fame and the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame. Now, almost 30 years after he retired the school is giving back to him. Hastings High school announced that the old basketball gym will be updated and re-floored. In that same announcement, they unveiled that the school will be changing the name of the Cochran Gym gym to the John Costello Court. Sadly, only a few days before the dedication Mr. Costello passed away, because of this, his son John Costello Jr. spoke on behalf of his father, and family.
