Harrison County is looking for a girl’s soccer coach following the resignation of head Coach Kim Jenkins after nine seasons at the helm of the Fillies.  
Jenkins’ varsity tenure came after 16 years at the Harrison County Middle School.  
Her overall record with the Fillies is 75-77-20 having won the last two district championships and finishing runners up in other seasons.  
Jenkins notified her team of the decision late last week after careful consideration.  
“It was very hard to leave the program but I really felt like it was time,” she said. “My focus needs to be more on my family and I believe this is a good decision for them.  They are my top priority and it is time for me to pass the torch.”
Jenkins’ resignation comes on the heels of long-time assistant John Lair’s departure from the program, which will leave the athletic department with some big shoes to fill.  
“I love the time that I spent with the soccer program and the girls that I have worked with at Harrison County High School,” Jenkins concluded. “I appreciate all of the support that the community has given to us and the cooperation that we have received from the administration and the parents over the years.”
