Millbrook High’s Girl’s Basketball coach resigns
WINCHESTER, VA–Millbrook High School in Frederick County announced Tuesday morning that Girl’s Basketball coach Kevin Barr has resigned after leading the Pioneers the past three seasons.
Barr, whose teams compiled a 60-19 record during his tenure as head coach, said he stepped down to spend more time with his family.
Millbrook High School’s Coordinator of Student Activities Scott Mankins said, “We appreciate the time and work that Coach Barr put into the Millbrook girls’ basketball team as an assistant coach as well as head coach. He will be missed, but we understand how important it is to be able to spend time with one’s family. He is a good coach, a good person and a good friend. We will begin the search for a new coach soon.”
Barr’s teams never lost more than seven games in any of the seasons in which he served as head coach. His 2013-14 team went 20-5 on its way to winning the Northwestern District regular season championship.
In 2014-15, the Pioneers compiled a record of 19-7 and were both the Northwestern District and Conference 21 regular season champions. This year’s team went 21-7 on its way to winning the Northwestern District and Conference 21 West regular season and tournament championships.
The team advanced to the Group 4-A state quarterfinals where it lost to Woodrow Wilson 63-50 in a hard fought contest.
