Wick out at Scholastica

DULUTH, MN - When St. Scholastica takes the ice next season, the man standing behind the bench for the Saints men will be a different one. On Monday, the Duluth, Minnesota school announced that they will not be bringing head coach Mark Wick back for a fifteenth season. Shawn Bartlette, his assistant of three years, has been named interim head coach. 

"We thank Mark Wick for his 14 years of service during which time he recorded 190 victories and one NCAA Tournament appearance," Athletic Director Brian Jamros said in the school's release. "...We look forward to continuing the great tradition that is Saints Hockey."

Wick's career with the Saints began in the 2004-05 campaign, with the high point occuring in 2009 with 20 wins and an NCAA tournament appearance. Since 2011-12, his clubs have posted at least twelve wins per season. He finishes his tenure with a record of 190-159-41 and was a two time NCHA Coach of the Year. 

A national search has been announced for a permanent replacement.
