Raider softball coach resigns
Lake Roosevelt High School’s head softball coach resigned Monday, leaving the team’s first game of the season, scheduled for Thursday, uncertain.
Athletic Director Rich Black said the resignation came as a surprise to him, and noted that, from his perspective, there had been no reason for coach Flint Bjorson to step down.
“Flint has some personal concerns that convinced him that he could no longer perform in the capacity of head softball coach,” Black said.
Bjorson could not be reached for comment by deadline.
“Going forward, we are attempting to reconstitute the coaching situation as soon as possible to enable our girls to play all of their softball games, including this Thursday’s game,” Black said. “We will be using a combination of interim volunteers to keep the process going.”
