Mercyhurst Prep swim coach Paula Allshouse has resigned effectively immediately. Allshouse cited “minor health issues” in a statement from the school and went on to say that she could not “put in the many hours that are required to coach great swimmers as well as a successful team”.
Allshouse helped lead a resurgence in the Mercyhurst Prep swimming program, which included several state championships in recent history. Mercyhurst Prep will begin looking for a new swim coach immediately. Those interested must contact Mercyhurst Prep athletic director Dan Perfetto by Oct. 5.
Nov. 16 is the first practice date for all winter sports.
