Local roundup: Malkowski named Wolverines head men’s golf coach

Wesley College interim athletic director Tracey Short announced on Friday that Steve Malkowski will take over as the head coach of the men’s golf team.

Malkowski joined the Wesley staff in the summer of 2017 serving as an assistant coach for the men’s golf team, while helping to initiate a movement toward adding women’s golf.

“We are very pleased to have Steve and excited for him to share his passion for golf and Wesley College with the student-athletes,” said Short. “His commitment to the players and the program will be an asset to the young men on the team.”

A 1983 graduate of Wesley College, Malkowski has spent the past 15 years as the assistant golf coach at Dover High. Malkowski served eight years in the Air Force and currently owns “The Trophy Man” award service in Dover.

In addition, the Wesley golf programs will return to Maple Dale Country Club as their home course.

UD hires pitching coach: The Delaware baseball program has hired former Central Florida player Juan Pimentel as its new pitching coach.

“We’re really excited to have Juan join our staff,” said UD head coach Jim Sherman. “He brings great knowledge, energy, a cutting-edge approach to pitching and great recruiting contacts. This is an exciting time for UD baseball and Juan’s addition adds to that excitement.

“Juan already is recognized as a tireless worker and an outstanding young talented pitching coach. We feel very fortunate to have Juan join our staff and lead our staff onto great things.”

Pimentel spent last season as the pitching coach at Indian River State Coach in Fort Pierce, Fla. He created a developmental platform for the pitching staff, which resulted in an eight-win improvement, four NCAA Division I commitments and three MLB draft picks.
