The Boston Globe recently featured a story about girls varsity hockey coach Tom Resor’s 800th win and his legendary run at the helm. Congratulations to Tom on this impressive accomplishment. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Tom Resor opened the door to the ice at the Omni Rink and clapped his black gloves three times, instructing his Nobles girls’ hockey team to “go get ‘em.”

During Saturday’s nonleague game against visiting St. Paul’s School, wearing a navy blue and white ‘Nobles’ Under Armour hat, Resor stood in the middle of the bench, pacing a step or two every few minutes, astutely monitoring every detail.

Nobles was impressive in a 6-1 victory. It was career victory No. 801 for the 65-year-old Resor, now in his 38th, and final, season as coach at the school, where he has pulled the rare combo of coaching both the boys’ and girls’ programs. (No. 800 came Wednesday in a 9-0 shutout of Independent School League foe Lawrence Academy).

Under the tutelage of the New Canaan, Conn., native — who grew up playing on a backyard rink with his four older brothers, then played at Hotchkiss and Williams — the Bulldogs (16-0-1) have won the ISL each of the last 14 seasons and 20 times in the 23 years.
