Kevin Fry has resigned as head coach of Shawe Memorial's soccer program effective immediately, the school announced Tuesday.
Fry originally started the program in 1994 and coached the Hilltoppers for two years before taking a step back. He returned as an assistant coach in 2009 before taking over for Pat Stack in 2011.
As head coach, Fry led the Hilltoppers to back-to-back sectional titles over the past two years, the third and fourth in the history of the program. Shawe reached the regional finals in 2011 and won a school-record 18 games last season.
According to a press release issued by the school, Fry decided to step aside in order to focus on his job and to watch his daughter, Shannon, participate in Shawe athletics. He was able to coach his son, Eamon, in soccer the past two years.
"We appreciate everything coach Fry has done for the soccer program and for Shawe in general," athletic director Steve Sims said. "He will always be a part of Hilltopper athletics."
