Assistant Coach – Mr. John Petrie
My coaching Philosophy is simple: winning isn’t everything but neither is simply participating – Trophies should be awarded to Champions. Certainly varsity sports should develop individual ability and teams should compete at their highest levels, but both should grow and develop under the guidelines of positive attitude, fair sportsmanship, honest effort and hard work.
I have been a part of PACS for 11 years and enjoy being involved with the students outside of the classroom. I was the Softball Assistant Coach for 5 years before taking over the team as Head Coach last season. We have enjoyed numerous incredible seasons posting a regular season record of 29-1 over the last 3 seasons and have won a District X11AA Title in 2012, a Philadelphia Public League title that capped an undefeated season in 2015 and have advanced to the State tournament 4 of the last 5 seasons.
