RELEASE FROM BENEDICTINE MILITARY SCHOOL:
Benedictine's Joe Tvrdy resigns as varsity soccer head coach
Benedictine Military School's Joe Tvrdy has resigned as varsity soccer head coach to spend more time with his family, BC Athletics Director Danny Britt announced Thursday.
Tvrdy and his wife, Tess (the varsity soccer head coach at St. Vincent's Academy), welcomed their second child, Joseph, who was born May 16, 2013. Tvrdy, BC's Mathematics Department Chair, will remain at Benedictine Military School as a teacher. He also will continue as head coach of the Cadets' varsity wrestling team.
“Joe is stepping away to spend more time with his family,” Britt said. “He will continue to coach wrestling and continue to teach at Benedictine. Joe's done an incredible job with everything he's done at BC. He did a great job developing the soccer program at Benedictine into one of the elite programs in the area. We will miss him as soccer coach but I'm glad we can keep him as wrestling coach and as a teacher.”
Benedictine Military School soccer teams won three region championships and advanced to the Georgia High School Association state playoffs in eight of Tvrdy's 10 years at the helm. He guided the Cadets to three Elite Eight appearances, including this season.
“We don't know at this time who will fill the void left by Joe but we are working on finding a replacement,” Britt said.
