From KHSAA New Release Today:

 

Harrison County baseball coach Mac Whitaker has been named the national baseball coach of the year by the National Federation of State High School Associations.

Whitaker led the Thorobreds to the 2010 state championship, the fourth for the school under his watch. During his 33 years as the head coach at Harrison County, the program has compiled a record of 913-260 with many of his players continuing their careers at the collegiate and professional levels. Whitaker also enjoyed a successful tenure as the school’s girls’ basketball coach, leading the Fillies to 10th Region championships in 2000 and 2002. He has also served as the school’s athletic director.

Whitaker, who became only the fourth coach in state history to win 900 games during the 2010 season, trails only Larry Gumm (Green County), Don Richardson (Madison Central) and Bill Miller (Pleasure Ridge Park) on the state’s all-time victories list.

Coach Whitaker has produced State Powerhouses every single year, with a school that has average enrollment and is average at every other Varsity sport. He's made baseball the focal point of Cynthiana. He is well deserving of this award. Congratulations to Mac.
