Hamline three-year head coach Audrey Ludwig stepped down in order to accept an assistant position at Maryland. A national search is underway.

Aurora named James Seitelman as its new head coach. Seitelman had been the head coach at Merchant Marine for the past three seasons.

Concordia Wisconsin 13-year head coach Joe Cawley stepped down. The new coach at CUW has not been announced.

Westminster (Mo.) named Curtis Madson as its new head coach. Madson had been an assistant at UW-Parkside.

Bethany Lutheran named John Olmanson as its new head coach. Olmanson had been the head coach at Como Park (Minn.) High School.

Northland named Kim Falkenhagen as its new head coach. Falkenhagen had been an assistant at Northern Michigan.

Happy recruiting season, everyone.
