Sarah Harman has decided to step aside as the head coach of Grace’s softball team.
Harman cited the desire to pursue professional endeavors outside of athletics as the reason for stepping down as well as the ability to spend more time with her family. She leaves Grace after three seasons.
The Lady Lancers were NAIA Scholar-Teams (3.0 overall team GPA) in each of Harman’s seasons, and she also secured strong recruiting classes to help build the program.
The program will be led in the interim by Hannah Swartzentruber, an assistant coach under Harman. Swartzentruber will direct the Lady Lancers through the spring season. “We would like to thank Sarah Harman for her pursuit of Christian excellence and guidance of our softball program at Grace,” said Grace Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe. “She has faithfully impacted lives for the Lord through softball. We support her decision and wish her all the best going forward. She has built a strong culture and helped the ladies grow in their faith.”
The Lady Lancers’ season is scheduled to begin on Feb. 13 with a doubleheader at IU Southeast.
A national search for Grace’s next softball head coach will begin later this spring. – from gclancers.com
