Coach NomicosAmid a flurry of Bay Area rains, Skyline College endured a wet weekend in its scheduled three-game series against the College of the Redwoods Corsairs. Saturday play was ultimately rained out before the two teams were able to squeeze in a twin bill Sunday. When it was all said and done, Skyline College Trojans swept the doubleheader to notch its first two wins of the season, downing the Corsairs in the opener 9-8 in 10 innings, then triumphing 12-1 in a rain-shortened seven-inning nightcap.

The wins mark career victories No. 299 and No. 300 for Nomicos, who started coaching at Skyline College in 2000. He is the fifth baseball coach in the history of the college and the winningest to date. Previous Skyline College Head Baseball coaches were Bill Harron, Terry Christman, Mike Givens, and Ken Bowman. With these victories, Nomicos is now second in career victories by a Skyline College coach only trailing Pete Pontac, the former legendary Hall of Fame Men’s Basketball Coach.
