Posted: April 19, 2013

BERRYVILLE -- Tim Lawrence, the first coach to lead a local team to a girls’ high school basketball state championship, has resigned.

Clarke County High School Athletic Director Casey Childs announced in an e-mail that Tim Lawrence has resigned as the Eagles’ head coach less  a month after leading the team back to the Group A State Tournament.

Lawrence took over the Eagles’ program in 2004 and led them to their only Region B (2006 and 2007) and state (2007) championships in program history.

Clarke went 23-7 this year and reached the Division 2 semifinals. He was named The Winchester Star Girls’ Basketball Coach of the Year this season for the third time in his nine seasons.
