Mark Berndt has stepped down as St. Charles Preparatory School lacrosse coach for family reasons.

Berndt coached the Cardinals for six-plus seasons, compiling a 63-49 record. He began his tenure in 2011, coaching the final two games of that season after Bill Taylor resigned.

“I have to take time with my wife and three kids,” said Berndt, whose team finished 10-7 this season. “I need to be on the sideline for my kids’ games and I missed too much of that this spring.”

Berndt and his wife, Andrea, have two sons, Ethan, 10, and Dylan, 8, and a daughter, Camryn, 5.
