Prep notebook: Madison West selects Pat Bauch as boys soccer coach; Alicia Pelton continues in AD role


Madison West has promoted Pat Bauch to coach the boys soccer team, Regents substitute athletic director Alicia Pelton said.

Bauch previously was a boys soccer assistant at West after playing for the school, Pelton said in an email.

Bauch replaces Drew Kornish, who was named Sauk Prairie boys soccer coach in May after coaching the Regents’ boys team for the past two seasons.

Pelton continues her duties as athletic director. Devon Peterson, who was hired last year as West’s athletic director, continues on medical leave. More about her status is expected to be known in early September, Pelton said.
