Our Fastpitch Story


Coach Doug Kesler

 and the Red Raider Fastpitch Softball Program. 

Coach Kesler started, built, and led the Raider Fastpitch Softball for 16 seasons; beginning the program in 1998 and retiring after the 2013 season with an amazing 412 victories. His teams averaged 25 wins a season and he led his teams to region championships and state playoffs. However, Coach Kesler’s impact reaches far beyond the confines of Raider field. His players continue to benefit from the lessons of life that were instilled, expected, and modeled as he taught the game of SOFTBALL.


A coach’s primary function should not be to make better players, but to make better people.” John Wooden


The softball field was his classroom and his players were his family. We are proud to be Red Raiders and blessed to have been coached by the best.

Thanks Coach Kesler for what you began here and the winning  tradition we now seek to continue.
