LAKE PARK, Minn. - Two Lake Park-Audubon, Minn., girls basketball coaches have resigned after two players raised allegations that are now being investigated by police.
Head girls basketball coach Andrew Schwan and assistant coach Darrin Myhre submitted their resignations after being placed on administrative leave on Friday, said LP-A Superintendent Dale Hogie.
Hogie said he could not elaborate on allegations the two girls raised on Friday, other than the incidents occurred in the jurisdiction of the St. Cloud (Minn.) Police Department.
St. Cloud police were in Lake Park Wednesday conducting interviews, Hogie said.
"They spent a good portion of the day visiting with players and parents," he said.
The girls basketball team played in a tournament on Dec. 28 and 29 in Upsala, which is 40 minutes from St. Cloud. St. Cloud is about 180 miles east of Lake Park.
A message left with the St. Cloud police public information officer was not returned Wednesday.
Both coaches also teach grades seven through 12 in the district. Schwan taught social studies and Myrhe taught business.
Schwan had been the LP-A head coach since the 2002-03 season. On the LP-A Web site, Schwan was also listed as co-athletic director and an assistant head football coach. Myrhe was listed as the LP-A head baseball coach.
Hogie said he accepted their resignations on behalf of the district.
Phone listings for the coaches were not available. Athletic Director Jed Swegarden referred questions to Hogie.
