Before leaving Richmond, members of the General Assembly saluted Wakefield High School boys basketball coach Tony Bentley for his, and the team’s ongoing success.
Bentley was lauded for “his impressive achievements and contributions to the commonwealth,” noted the resolution, patroned by Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th) and passed unanimously in each house.
Bentley’s coaching career totals 27 years, including 17 at Wakefield as a head coach, and he amassed his 300th career victory this past December. His Wakefield teams have won seven district and three regional championships, made seven state-tournament appearances and reached the state-tournament finals in 2018.
