WALLA WALLA — Walla Walla High School girls basketball coach Jill Meliah, JV coach Mike Patterson and freshman coach Kasey Hooter stepped down from their respective positions.
Athletic director Don Wilkins said he received notice of their resignations a couple weeks ago and wanted to thank the three coaches for their tremendous effort during their tenure at Wa-Hi.
“She’s a fantastic coach,” Wilkins said of Meliah. “She’s done a great job. Besides that, she’s an outstanding person. It’s a sad day for athletics at Wa-Hi. She’s a great role model for our young female athletes. It’s just sad she’s not going to be part of our coaching staff.”
Wilkins said the search for a new coach has not started.
