Schwarz passes Trokan on UW-L all-time baseball wins list

Posted: Updated:
University of Wisconsin-La Crosse baseball coach Chris Schwarz became the school's leader in wins Wednesday, surpassing the great Pat Trokan.

The Eagles beat Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham (N.J) 6-0 and 14-6 in a doubleheader Wednesday to give Schwarz 218 career wins.

Schwarz, in his 11th season with UW-L, has the Eagles at 4-1 to begin this season. He led the Eagles to the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Midwest Regional in 2014 after the team finished 26-18 overall and 16-7 in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, later advancing to the conference championship game for the third straight season.

Other notables for Schwarz include being named the 2012 WIAC and Midwest Region Coach of the Year and the 2012 Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association Coach of the Year.

UW-L has earned 51 All-WIAC awards under Schwarz, including 24 first team selections.
