Monmouth Coach Berndt Retires

This is a breaking story, and I'll try to update this later.

A source has informed me that Monmouth head coach Louie Berndt has retired, and the Hawks are currently looking for her replacement. I'm told this is due to an ongoing health issue.

As MAAC softball followers know, Coach Berndt led her team on an impressive MAAC tournament run this past season, falling one game short of the championship. Solid recruiting has her team in good shape, but her field leadership will be missed.

The current Monmouth assistant is Jessica Garcia, former All-American at New Mexico and a member of the professional Akron Racers this season. No word yet if she has applied for the position.

More on this later.
