Two coaches for the Menomonee Falls High School girls cross country team have resigned from the school district after consuming alcohol during a meet in October.
The team’s head coach Paul Schramka and team coach Lyn Deiss resigned after being placed on administrative leave for the incident in October. Schramka was an educational assistant at MFHS, and Deiss was a teacher at MFHS. A volunteer for the team, who was also caught consuming alcohol, resigned from helping the team.
Both employees were placed on administrative leave after news of the incident surfaced. The incident occurred on Oct. 18 during a cross country meet hosted at Rotary Park in Menomonee Falls. The district will not release further details regarding the incident. The School Board approved both resignations earlier in November.
Boys cross country coach Tom Shannon escorted Falls’ Megan Paule to the state qualifier in October after the incident. The district has posted the vacant head coaching position for the girls' team, but its unclear if that vacancy has been filled.
