Spring Lake softball coach Bill Core announced on Sunday that he'd be stepping down after discussions with returning players and athletic director Cavin Mohrhardt over the weekend.

"This is something that I have thought about for some time and just could not make it official [yet]," Core said in a release. "My family kept saying 'Don't do it Dad,' but they are exactly the reason why I am. At Spring Lake we stress the importance of family and now I am stepping away for that reason."
