Dom Lorusso always told his athletes that good things happen to good people.
On the final day of his 40-year coaching career, perhaps his team decided it was time to pay that lesson back.
The Valley Forge Military Academy baseball team sent Lorusso into retirement by throwing a combined no-hitter Thursday in a 10-0 defeat of visiting Phelps.
Lorusso, who has been the athletic director since 2007, has also served as the head wrestling coach and the director of health and physical education.
"Having coached for over four decades at the same school has given me the opportunity to be a part of one of the greatest professions in the field of education," Lorusso said.

Costello drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth inning, and Gibbs tossed a two-hit shutout to lead Little Flower past host Conwell Egan, 1-0, in the quarterfinals of the Catholic League playoffs.
Costello's RBI single was one of just four Little Flower hits against Conwell-Egan's Gina Massaro. But Gibbs was even more untouchable. She struck out 11 and walked two.
