This past Wednesday, Skippers’ women’s basketball coach, Lakita Gantz, stepped down from her position prior to the game against Schoolcraft College.
Athletic director Dale Vos was reached for comment about said resignation.
Vos could not comment on reasons behind the resignation of the former coach, but reassured that the season would continue.
Mike Groulx, men’s assistant basketball coach, will fill in as interim coach, with help from current women’s assistant coach, Lucretia Bowerman.
Groulx will maintain this position until the end of the season, at which point the hiring process for a new coach will begin, sometime around March.
Vos maintains that the lady Skippers will be able to withstand this blow and finish the season strong.
More information will be provided as the story develops.
