FORT BRANCH — Gibson Southern High School announced Wednesday Terry Wallace resigned from his position as head tennis coach.

Wallace held the position for 12 years, and held a 134-67 record during his tenure.

In a release from the athletic department, Wallace stated how difficult the decision was to step down, but it was the best decision for his family.

“A person could not ask for a better place to coach than at Gibson Southern,” he stated. “Anything that we ever needed was always provided and I look forward to supporting Titan athletics for years to come.”

Wallace coached the 2011 boys tennis team to the first boys tennis sectional title in Gibson Southern history.

In 2012, he was named the Daily Clarion’s Gibson County Coach of the Year. The next year the boys tennis team won another sectional championship.

Wallace’s teams won four Pocket Athletic Conference championships, 2011-2014.

Jon Adams, Gibson Southern athletic director, wrote in the release that Wallace has personified the word “coach” over his tenure.

“(Wallace) has always conducted himself with the utmost integrity and led his teams with high character and morals, and we wish him nothing but the best as he moves on,” Adams stated.
