Waxahachie ISD Hires Girls’ Track Coach
Waxahachie ISD announced today that June Villers will be the new Waxahachie High School head girls’ track coach, filling the spot vacated by retiring head coach Dana Scott.
“Coach Scott’s strong foundation of success has allowed us to attract one of the most elite high school track coaches in the nation,” said WHS girls’ athletic coordinator Sandy Faussett. “Coach Villers is the best there is and our students and school community will soon see why.”
Coach Villers was recently named the Texas High School Coaches Association “Coach of Year.” Coach Villers is the first and only female to receive the award. This distinction reflects her exceptional talent as a coach, teacher and leader. Coach Villers comes to Waxahachie ISD from DeSoto High School, where she built a tradition-rich track program that is nationally recognized. She accumulated nine UIL track and field team state championships, and she cultivated a program that produced dozens of elite track athletes. Her career in education spans 25 years as a coach, math teacher, and athletic administrator. Coach Villers has received numerous accolades and honors, including her upcoming induction into the National High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame in June.
“This is an incredible opportunity for our students and school community," said Greg Reed, Waxahachie ISD Athletic Director. "Coach Villers’s skill as a track and field coach are amazing, but her positive influence and lifelong impact on students is what makes her truly special. Dr. Jerry Hollingsworth, Coach Sandy Faussett, and Mrs. Tonya Harris were instrumental in making this hire and I am truly grateful."
“Thank you for the opportunity to join the Waxahachie ISD family,” said Coach Villers. “Everyone has been extremely friendly and welcoming. I'm excited to meet the girls and continue the legacy of Waxahachie track and field.”
