Highland Park girls basketball coach Amy Matlock said she is leaving the school to become the head coach and girls athletic coordinator at the new Independence High School in Frisco.
Matlock just wrapped up her sixth season with the Lady Scots, who finished with a 17-10 record and fell to The Colony in the bi-district round of the Class 4A Region II playoffs. HP will move up to the new Class 6A next season.
After coming to HP from Wylie, Matlock led the Lady Scots to the playoffs in five of her six seasons at the helm, including a trip to the regional semifinals in 2012 to cap a 25-8 season that was one of the most successful campaigns in program history.
Independence will open in the fall as the seventh high school in Frisco ISD, and will be part of a nine-team alignment in District 9-5A.
