MOORHEAD — Concordia Cobbers men's and women's head cross country coach Laura Januszewski is stepping down from her post to accept a position as the technology integrationist at Pelican Rapids High School, Cobbers Athletics announced in a press release on Wednesday. She will also coach the cross country and track and field teams.
Januszewski completed her third season as the Cobbers men’s and women’s cross country head coach, as well as an assistant coach for the Concordia track and field teams.
Under Januszewski, the Cobbers men's cross country team posted its best finish in an NCAA Regional Meet in 16 years when they finished 15th in 2019. Concordia's women's cross country team recorded its first top five finish at the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship meet since 2000 when they placed fifth. The women’s team also finished 10th at the Central Region meet, which marked the first time since 2012 that Concordia had finished in the top 10 at the event.
The search for a full-time replacement for Januszewski's position is slated to begin immediately.
