Owens Community College Head Coach Bob Schultz recently reached a milestone in his illustrious baseball career by earning victory No. 200 with an 8-5 win over Grand Rapids Community College.

“It has been a privilege to coach so many talented players and with such tremendous assistant coaches over the years,” said Schultz.

“The accomplishment is not about the wins. It’s about helping our student-athletes develop lifelong skills that will enable them to succeed in their academic and athletic endeavors, as well as become leaders within their communities.”

Schultz, a Walbridge resident and Waite graduate, began his head coaching career at Owens during the 2003 season. In his first year, he led the Express to 38 victories. Schultz, whose career record now stands at 211-104-1, has never recorded a losing season during his seven-year tenure at Owens and has more victories than any other coach in program history. He has guided the Express to many notable achievements, including four conference championships in 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008. Prior to his position as Head Coach, Schultz served as an Express Assistant Coach for five years.

The 2009 edition of the men’s baseball program has an overall record of 24-5 and a 5-1 mark (first place) in the OCCAC. Owens is ranked No. 12 in the current NJCAA Division II poll.

The Owens men’s baseball program finished the 2008 season with a 31-6-1 overall record and captured its seventh Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (14-2 record) title in the program’s history.
