New Baseball Coach Named 

Larry Lipker, assistant baseball coach at Morehead State University (KY) was named  new head baseball coach.

“Larry will bring a lot of strengths to the V-Hawk program. Our search committee was impressed not only with his coaching background but with his communication skills and his proven recruiting abilities,” said Barry Fried, Viterbo’s athletics director.

Lipker served as assistant coach with the Morehead State Eagles for the past five years, working in all areas of the program including recruiting, travel arrangements, fundraising, and monitoring players’ academic progress.

Lipker has a Bachelor’s degree in psychology/secondary education from Campbellsville University and a Master’s in secondary guidance and counseling from Morehead State University.

He succeeds Dale Varsho as head coach of the V-Hawks. This past year, the team finished the season with a 17?24?1 record. Lipker will assume his duties effective Aug. 1. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Lipker will also serve as the Outdoor Athletics Complex coordinator.
