Zack Sterner has been named Roane State Community College’s head baseball coach.
Sterner served as an assistant coach for two years under Head Coach David Lane, who has resigned to take a full-time teaching position at Roane State.
“I am excited about the future and challenges of the baseball program,” Sterner said.
Before coming to Roane State, Sterner played college ball at Walters State and at Tennessee Wesleyan College and went on to play professional baseball in the Philadelphia Phillies organization for three years and the River City Rascals of Frontier League Independent Professional Baseball for two years.
Lane coached baseball at Roane State for seven years, first as an assistant and then as head coach from 2009 to 2013. “We appreciate all the hard work and stability that Coach Lane gave our program the last few years” said Athletic Director Randy Nesbit. “We’re confident that Coach Sterner has become well-prepared to assume his new position by being groomed under Coach Lane’s tutelage, along with his close relationships with Coaches Ken Campbell at Walters State and Billy Berry at Tennessee Wesleyan.”
“I am sincerely thankful to Roane State for the opportunity to guide each student-athlete in the classroom, on the baseball field, and in the community by placing an emphasis on providing each player the tools to maximize their opportunity to succeed,” said Sterner.
