I posted something in the general Athletics section of the message board about it, but Holly Van Vlyman has been brought on as an interim HC. She played for WIU in the late '90s, was a phenomenal pitcher, played professionally for a bit, was inducted into the athletics HOF in 2012, was the HC from 2006-2016 and was fairly successful in that time. Stepped down after 2016 to work in the athletics office.

As the "Assistant Athletic Director for Academics and Student-Athlete Development", I think she's the one in charge of things like making sure all athletes are academically qualified and keeping them qualified.

Holly is a great "get" at this point in time. Golitko left at a pretty un-opportune time and having Holly step in is great news. Beth player for Holly and was basically using Holly's stuff. I heard the ladies were very excited when it was announced. ;) jc
