Next At Bat: Whitman’s new baseball head coach steps up

A fresh start for the men’s baseball team was just what the doctor ordered when Jared Holowaty came on board this year as head coach. Hailing from the East Coast, where he worked as assistant coach and recruitment coordinator for the University of Maine for the last four years, the new coach is excited to offer his hand in leading the team to success this year.

The Pioneer: What are you most excited about this year?

Coach Holowaty: The opportunity. I know the expectations haven’t been too high, but I come here trying to build something with a lot of support from the team and the school.

The Pioneer: What were your first impressions of Whitman’s baseball team?

Coach Holowaty: At first glance, it’s a unique situation. I understand how losses can determine a team’s attitude and it can become ingrained in that attitude. We’re trying to change that this year and be successful in changing that ingrained idea, even if it doesn’t result in wins right away.

The Pioneer: While you were at the University of Maine as a recruiting coordinator, what qualities did you look for in players?

Coach Holowaty: You want the player that fits the profile of the school and buys into what you’re trying to sell them. It’s important to have quality student-athletes that play hard.

The Pioneer: And you saw great results?

Coach Holowaty: Absolutely. I had to help rebuild the last program I was a part of and we had to fuse in our expectations with their qualities, and it ended up being pretty successful.

The Pioneer: What are you hoping to achieve this year?

Coach Holowaty: A positive turnaround that brings BIG energy from the support of the school.
