Dawson County High School boys’ varsity soccer Coach Derek Waters resigned effective Sept. 11, according to Athletic Director Jason Gibson. The head coach of the Dawson County Middle School team, Patrick Meunchen, has been named as his replacement for the upcoming season. “Coach Waters did an outstanding job during an incredibly difficult time with our soccer program,” Gibson said. “We appreciate his willingness to step in after Coach Lacey’s passing and continue to lead our boys’ soccer program.” Waters, an assistant coach with the program for six years, took over as head coach after then-Head Coach Jed Lacey was killed in a car wreck in August 2017. Waters led the team deep into the Sweet 16 round of the playoffs before ending the season with a loss to North Murray High School.
