Luo Vullo, the ninth-year boys basketball coach at The Pinnacle, won the 200th game of his career on Tuesday night.

Vullo's Timberwolves secured the milestone for their coach with a 78-29 win over Lake County.

Vullo's career started at Thomas Jefferson, where he was junior varsity head coach. He got his first job as a head varsity coach at Sheridan in 2004-05, and was twice named lead Frontier League coach of the year. Vullo led the Rams to 63 wins, including a 19-3 season in 2006-07, and they made the state tournament each season.

Since joining Pinnacle in 2009-10, the Class 3A program has gone 137-59, averaging 16 wins per season. The Timberwolves have made the state tournament each year of Vullo's tenure.

It means that in each of his seasons as head coach, Vullo's teams have qualified for the state tournament.

Over the course of his 14-year career, Vullo's record is now 200-110.

Pinnacle is off to a 6-4 start in 2017-18.
