For the second time this summer, the Wakefield High School girls basketball team is without a head coach.

Mason Bishop accepted the job in July, then had to step down just weeks later because of a job change and some unexpected family health issues.

ā€œIā€™m disappointed because I was really looking forward to coaching Wakefield and trying to be a helpful coach,ā€ Bishop said.

Bishop replaced Marcia Richardson, who coached the Warriors to 103 wins and region- and state-tournament berths the past seven seasons.

With Bishop now out, Wakefield is in the process of choosing a replacement, with the season scheduled to start in December. A replacement had not been named as a Sept. 4.

Bishop spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach for the girls high-school basketball program at Lake Braddock Secondary School.
