Rett Roach steps down from WH Heritage girls soccer post
Following one of the most successful seasons in school history, White House Heritage girls soccer coach Rett Roach has stepped down.
Roach will graduate from Belmont University’s College of Law next May and plans to open his own practice. He informed the Heritage administration last February that the 2019 season would be his last.
“I don’t know exactly where this next journey of my life is going to take me,” Roach said. “Because of that uncertainty, there’s no way I can obligate myself for the Fall 2020 season. It would not be fair to the girls to not have something solidified.”
The Lady Patriots are fresh off a historic 2019 season that included many firsts. Heritage beat White House three times and won the District 9-AA regular season, District 9-AA tournament and Region 5-AA tournament crowns – all for the first time in program history.
“It was awesome,” Roach said. “I don’t think many coaches can say that their last season was probably their best. But I think that’s true. It’s nice to know that the program is in good shape. They have a lot of returning talent.”
