Laker coaches earn coaching staff of the year honors
The Iowa Lakes softball coaching staff was named the NJCAA Division II National Coaching Staff of the Year by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
“This is an extraordinary honor,” said head coach Mike Bosch. “The first thing I did when I got the news was to thank the players, parents and travel ball coaches. They make our job easier and without them what we have accomplished would not be possible. I feel we have put together a program that produces successful student athletes and that a player can step on campus on day one and leave a better player and person when they graduate.”
Bosch and assistant coach Megan Anderson led the Lakers to the NJCAA Division II Region XI Championship and a fifth-place finish at nationals in Normal, Ill. Iowa Lakes finished the season with a 56-13 record.
Athletics director Troy Larson was very adamant about the importance of the honor as well.
“This is a well deserved honor for Mike and his staff,” Larson said. “The team had an outstanding year as a result of all of their hard work. Mike is a tireless recruiter and an excellent head coach. He is a tremendous asset to Iowa Lakes. We are looking forward to another outstanding season next spring.”
