The Beloit High School softball program will be looking for a new coach.  Kelsey Treaster submitted her resignation to the USD 273 administration last Monday.

Treaster spent seven seasons as a coach in the program with the first two as an assistant.  In Treaster's five years as the head coach, the Lady Trojans enjoyed much success. Treaster went 79-32 overall and 45-14 in North Central Activities Association contests.  The Lady Trojans had a winning record each year and never finished worse than 8-4 in the league in those five seasons.

Her tenure was bookended by two of the most successful seasons in Beloit history.  In her first year in 2014, the Lady Trojans went 18-5 and 9-3 in the NCAA and made it to the regional championship before falling to Minneapolis.  This past season, Beloit had its best season in school history with a 19-3 finish and going 11-0 to win their first ever outright NCAA title.  The season ended in heartbreak with a tough 4-1 loss to Southeast of Saline in the regional final.

Treaster cited her main reason for stepping down at this time was to be able to spend more time with her family.

The next coach at Beloit will inherit an experienced group, as Beloit had just two seniors (Grace Marozas and Lizzie Overmiller) on this year's team.
