Berks Catholic’s Bob Birmingham reached another coaching milestone Tuesday, passing the late Lloyd Wolf in victories with his 627th as the Saints beat Twin Valley 63-28 in a Berks Girls Basketball League Division I-II game at Wolf Gymnasium.
Birmingham, who played for Wolf at Holy Name, is 627-300 in his 34th season. He is all-time leader in girls coaching wins in Berks. He coached at Holy Name for 22 seasons and has been the coach at Berks Catholic since its inception. The Saints are 6-0 in Berks I, 10-4 overall this season.
Wolf, who passed away at the age of 77 in 2017, went 626-381 in nearly 40 seasons leading the Holy Name boys. He retired early in the 2006-07 season.
He set the Berks record for boys coaching wins, which was broken by Snip Esterly at the gym named in Wolf’s honor in 2015 — with Wolf on the Saints bench to witness it.
