Ed Paulter to retire as Seattle Prep AD; Mark Cross will step in

Ed Paulter is retiring as Seattle Prep athletic director at the end of the school year.

Mark Cross has been named as his successor.

Paulter stepped down as the school’s head baseball coach at the end of last season with Max Engel taking over this spring.

Here is the school’s press release:

Longtime Seattle Prep coach, faculty member and Athletic Director Ed Paulter announced that he will be retiring at the end of the 2013-14 school year. Ed’s 30 year career with the school includes five Metro titles, 13 state tournament appearances and a 415-202 record as head baseball coach. He also served as a social studies instructor before being named Athletic Director in 2006.

Seattle Prep has named former Seattle Prep instructor and coach Mark Cross as its next Athletic Director. Mark is currently the Athletic Director for Evergreen High School in the Highline School District and will begin his new role at Seattle Prep this summer.

Cross, who holds an MBA specializing in athletic administration from Ohio University, has held positions in physical education and has served as a football and basketball coach prior to making the transition into administration.  Assistant Principal for Student Life, Michael Kelly, says, “While Ed’s departure and years of experience will leave a difficult void to fill, we are excited to be adding Mark’s expertise and demonstrated commitment to the formation of young people to our already talented adult community. His presence will enrich and add value to our students’ experience and to our coaching and teaching community.”
