Cal (Pa.)’s record baseball season under Mike Conte helped the coach earn the Atlantic Region Coach of the Year honor by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association on Thursday.

The Vulcans posted 37 wins and 15 losses. Conte earned the honor for the first time since 2010 after being named Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West Coach of the Year.

It marked the eighth time Conte garnered the honor from the conference and first time since 2013.

The 37-win mark eclipsed the previous mark for wins accomplished in 2007.

The Vulcans led the Atlantic Region with a .712 winning percentage this season.

Conte became the first Cal (Pa.) head coach of a men’s sport to total at least 600 career victories.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
