“I knew it was time. I wanted to go when things were good. The JV and freshman teams were undefeated. There’s strength in the program and I’d like to leave that for somebody.”
Peabody is scheduled to open the position sometime next week and is expected to begin the interviewing process early next month.
The Tanners also held their end of the season banquet earlier this week, where Heil named the captain-elects for next year— Danielle Sullivan, Courtney Bua and Sara Hosman.
Senior captain Alex Lomasney was given the Unsung Hero Award, Carolyn Scacchi was named team MVP, Amanda Matthews and Olivia Summit were chosen for the Coaches Awards, and Hosman earned the Frank L Wiggin Award for her unselfish play and impact on the season.
