TC West Hires New Coaches

Oct. 11, 2018

Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) announced Wednesday it has hired two new varsity sports coaches to fill vacant positions at Traverse City West Senior High. The coaches will be taking the reigns for West’s varsity softball and varsity girls tennis teams, respectively.
 
Filling the softball coaching position is David Kenny, who has led the football program at West Middle School for the past four years. He is also currently the middle school’s director of basketball operations as well as a reading specialist in the classroom. A 30-year TCAPS veteran, Kenny has “served as an elementary coach in every sport that TCAPS offers,” according to the press release announcing his hire.
 
Taking on the role of varsity girls tennis coach for West Senior High is Lisa Walheim-Seymour. Since 2009, Walheim-Seymour has been the JV girls tennis coach at TC Central High School. She is also the current tennis operations manager at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

Both new appointees will begin coaching their respective teams during the forthcoming spring 2019 athletic season.
