At the varsity level, her teams won 10 district championships, four bi-district championships, two area championships, and made four regional appearances. Her team won 20 or more games each season, and nine players received college scholarships.

On the national scene, in April of 1996, she traveled to Philadelphia as the assistant coach for the Nike-WBCA All-American game seen on ESPN2. In April of 2003, she was named the head coach for the Phoenix-WBCA Presented by Nike All-American game seen live on ESPN2 and played in front of 10,000 fans in the Hartford, CT Civic Center. She has served four years on the WBCA and National Federation Coaches Association Board of Directors and has served a term on the National Federation Basketball Rules Committee.

Georgetown's Farney earns 1,000th career win
...
Georgetown girls basketball coach Rhonda Farney, shown during the Class 4A state tournament that her team won last season, reached the 1,000-victory mark Thursday night, when the Eagles defeated Lumberton in an area-round playoff game.
...
No curses, jinxes or superstitions were going to prevent Georgetown girls basketball coach Rhonda Farney from earning the 1,000th victory of her high school career.
On Thursday the 13th, a day Farney feared might be unlucky, her Eagles won again. Using the same smothering defense that helped deliver so many victories during Farney's 39 years on the bench, Georgetown pulled away in the second half to defeat Lumberton 47-26 in a Class 4A area-round playoff in Huntsville.
Farney, saying she was "relieved" to reach the milestone, became the eighth high school girls basketball coach - and the fifth from Texas - to reach the 1,000-victory plateau, according to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. In the process, the defending state Class 4A champions advanced to the regional quarterfinals.
"We're on cloud nine because we get to play another game," Farney said Thursday night.
After the game, many fans received T-shirts that read "Coach Rhonda Farney 1,000 wins. One fan held up a large banner that simply read "1,000."
Georgetown, battling early foul trouble, blew a 10-point lead and trailed 20-18 early in the third quarter.
"This was the type of game it would have been very easy to implode if you don't have great team chemistry and leadership," Farney said.
