Rowe said, “I am extremely excited to continue my coaching career at Kearney High School with a group of girls that are truly the best to coach. Tami has been a great mentor and leader for me the past seven seasons, and she will be missed. I am so thankful for the work and time she has put in with this program, and I am ready to do the same.” Mitchell Stine, Kearney High School Assistant Principal for Activities commented, “Coach Anderson’s commitment to Kearney High School Athletics for nearly a quarter-century will no doubt be missed, she is a coach that always aimed for excellence both on and off the field. Rowe is a talented, high-character individual and I look forward to working with her to continue to develop the Girls Soccer Program. Her multi-sport perspective, along with her understanding and passion for the game will be contagious for our student-athletes.”
