A crowd of about 200 braved the rain Monday night to show their support for longtime Coach Bob Letsch after he was unexpectedly dismissed over the weekend.

We combed through social media to bring you photos and reaction from the rally, and would gladly accept anything else you’d all like to add.

The rally in the rain was the second show of support for Letsch Monday. Around 150 students walked around the school before their day began, many of them wearing “#IStandwithLetsch” t-shirts.

Also, we learned through the Support Coach Letsch Facebook page that an emergency meeting of the St. Catherine’s High School Board of Directors was called Monday evening as well. When we get details of that meeting, we will update this story.

Racine County Eye reached out to St. Catherine’s for additional comment, but Athletic Director Corey Scheel only referred us to the St. Cat’s website for the open letter from school administration. Here is that letter:

To the St. Catherine’s Community:

Late last week a tough situation played itself out when St. Catherine’s and head boys’ basketball coach Bob Letsch parted ways. Like with all private personnel matters, there are few details that can be shared. However, this decision was not one that was made lightly, and was in fact the result of a long process within which proper human resource protocols were followed.

As a Catholic, Dominican ministry, St. Catherine’s will always strive to foster a learning and working environment where people are treated with dignity and respect. The Angel Way is something we take very seriously and all employees are held to the same standards. Given the nature and duration of the issues at hand it was, sadly, impossible for this situation to play out differently.

That said, Bob Letsch has meant the world to St. Catherine’s in his work with our players and students over the years. The school will always be grateful for what he’s done, and these recent events do not change his history with SCHS nor his tremendous accomplishments as coach.
