For the prior three decades, the success of the Palmyra baseball program was founded in stability. But apparently the Cougars have entered into an era of change.
Right now, Palmyra is seeking its third head baseball coach in three years. The Cougars found themselves in that position when their most recent coach John Karavage accepted a teaching position at Milton Hershey School.
Last season was Karavage’s first – and only – campaign as Palmyra’s skipper. Karavage, who was hired to replace the retired Tim Gingrich, went 11-10 in 2013 and led Palmyra to a District Three Class AAA postseason appearance.
Prior to taking over for Gingrich, Karavage served as the Cougars’ junior varsity coach and was a teacher in the district’s system.
Palmyra athletic director Brian Weidler will be entertaining applications for Karavage’s replacement until Sept. 27. Interested candidates should possess at least two years of experience coaching at the high school level, or higher.
