Tom Welshans Named WCHS Baseball Coach

Tom Welshans, employed as an instructor at the Webster County Area Technology Center, was officially hired for the job last Friday. He will replace Nathan Tanner who took over the program in 2006. Tanner accepted a teaching position as well as the head baseball coaching position at Union County High School at the beginning of the school year.

"I'm just absolutely thrilled and excited about taking over the Trojan baseball program. This has been a life-long dream of mine, to be a head coach at the high school level,"  Welshans stated. "Baseball is where my heart and passion lies."

Welshans, originally from Champion, OH., was a 2-year letterman in baseball at Penn State-Shenango and served as an assistant baseball coach for three years at Champion High School in Warren, OH.

Welshans said he feels the talent, facilities and community support at Webster County are all in place to return to the "winning ways" of Trojan baseball.

"We'll have some strong seniors to lean on and we'll have some very good youngsters coming up. We want to build off what we already have and bring back that positive, winning attitude," Welshans added. "We've had some great teams here at WCHS and I want these kids to be a part of that again. Baseball is a fun game and teaches so many aspects of life. I know we can rekindle that winning attitude and passion for the game. Believe me, I'm ready to roll-up my sleeves and go to work with these outstanding you men as soon as soccer season is over," he added.

Welshans has served as head coach for the WCHS girls' soccer team for the past four years, building the program into a district contender.

"The soccer program is definitely on the way up and I feel like I've been a big part of that, rebuilding the program. But it's time to take these girls to the next level and I'm not the guy to do that. I want to help bring in a coach that can take this program to a 'top 25 team in the state', there's that kind of talent here," Welshans added. "But until the soccer season is over, my total focus is on these young ladies and us making a run at a district title."
