Lake Highlands High School just announced that Don Tatum will coach the girls varsity soccer team. Coach Misty Benson is leaving to coach Lovejoy High School. Tatum comes from Skyline High School where he has coached the past nine years. He held a record of 130-73-11.

Benson announced Tatum’s appointment via email; here’s what she had to say about it:

“It is with great excitement that I announce Don Tatum as the new head coach for the Lady Wildcats. Don was my candidate-of-choice and I told all who listened that he would be the best leader to take over this program. Coach Tatum comes from Skyline where he built a hugely successful program and I know he will be able to take these girls down the road to state as they have worked so hard to make happen. Don is a very knowledgeable coach with amazing instincts about the game and he is an overall incredible man. Coach Tatum will take over my coaching duties as well as teach government in his new role at Lake Highlands.”
