Holmes High Announces New Soccer Coach
After a record season for the Holmes High School boys soccer team, head coach Tom Haggard is stepping down.
“I have been involved with Holmes soccer as a player, fan or coach since 1995,” Haggard said in a news release. “I think it’s time for fresh blood and new ideas at this important moment in our soccer program’s history.’’
The team finished last season at 11-6-2, a school record for most wins, fewest losses, most goals scored, and fewest goals allowed. In Haggard's three seasons as head coach, he compiled a record of 24-24-3.
Christian Reyes, the junior varsity coach, will step up and take over the varsity team, the school announced.
"I am honored to be the head coach for the boys’ soccer team here at Holmes High school,’’ Reyes said in a statement. “A goal of mine is to carry the spirit of the team into new heights for the upcoming season.”
Several players from the program have received scholarships to play at the collegiate level in recent years.
The team will open its season in the newly renovated stadium on the Holmes campus on Saturday, August 26 at 7 p.m. against Covington Latin.
