The fall sports season is winding down and the McDaniel athletes and coaches are gearing up for another season of hard work. Here’s what some coaches had to say about their teams’ performances and their hopes for next season:

“This year was a good year in terms of gaining experience.  We had a very young team in comparison to the others in the conference.  Fifteen of our 22 starters were freshmen and sophomores.  We are very motivated to get to work this off-season and look forward to next year when we will be more mature physically and more experienced on the field.”

–Michael Hoyt, Head Football Coach


“The volleyball team had a winning record in 2014 but didn’t make the Centennial Conference playoffs.  Making the conference playoffs and competing for a conference championship are the steadfast goals of the volleyball program here at McDaniel.  I believe the players are committed to making that happen through hard work and mental preparation in the off season months.”

–Jessica Wolverton, Head Volleyball Coach


“The women’s golf team had a respectable fall with a few top-three finishes amongst our conference competitors. We look forward to the opportunity to improve this spring and make a run at Gettysburg for the conference championship. Seniors Katie Pass and Alise McNutt led the team with low stroke average for the fall. And both have the potential for All-Conference honors in April.”

–Mike Diehl, Head Women’s Golf Coach


“We actually just started our season. For this season, we are very optimistic and excited. We have a good balance between experienced, accomplished upperclassmen and a very talented and decorated freshman class. Our goal is to win the Centennial Conference tournament this year. Having ‘home field advantage’ this February when we host the championships will be a big deal. If our work ethic matches up with our talent, we are in store for a special season that we can continue to build upon.”

–David Blake, Head Wrestling Coach
