Just this past Monday, the School Board had a meeting that involved the hiring of Treynor’s new head baseball coach, Coach Scott Wallace.

Coach Wallace attended Lewis Central during high school along with taking some classes at Creighton and Iowa Western. During that time Wallace played for Lewis Central’s baseball team as a Utility player, playing shortstop, third base and center field.

After College, Coach Wallace has been coaching for the past 18 years, with the last two years being an assistant with our Cardinals.  During those two years, Wallace has gotten to know the team’s culture and traditions along with the players.

Wallace loves to see his players improve on a daily basis. “Seeing players find their passion for the game. Challenging them until they achieve their personal / team goals,”  His most rewarding part of coaching.

Wallace wants to establish the Junior Varsity program to produce varsity caliber players as the season progresses, as well as developing the varsity player to improve their game. “We will work hard every day. Keep everyone moving in the right direction.”

We asked Coach Wallace to describe himself as if one of his players were talking about him and he responded with “Hard Working, always working on the field, has a passion for the game. I would hope they say I’m a coach that they can relate to and would be comfortable discussing anything about the game with me.”
