Jarvis Christian College head baseball coach Michael Holochuck notched his 100th career coaching victory, while sweeping a four-game series over Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) member University of Houston-Victoria, in a 5-4 victory this past March 5th. The San Lorenzo, California native reached the milestone in only four seasons manning the Bulldog baseball program.
In his first three seasons at JCC, Holochuck posted 30-plus wins in each year (2013) 30-22, (2014) 31-19 and (2015) 30-23. Heading into the 2016 season, Coach Holochuck entered his fourth season as head coach of the Jarvis Christian College Bulldogs with a record of 93-66, includes three straight conference tournament appearances. Currently, Jarvis Christian has a record of 12-16, 8-4 in the RRAC.
Holochuck’s collegiate baseball career started at Chabot College in Hayward, CA before transferring to Texas College in 2006 where he was a two year starter for the Texas College Steers baseball team. After graduation, he became an assistant at his alma mater, helping lead the Steers to four straight RRAC conference tournaments before taking the head coaching position at Jarvis Christian.
Holochuck has his Bachelors of Science in Physical Education from Texas College and Masters of Science from Western Kentucky in Athletic Administrations. During Holochuck’s tenure, he has helped the team achieve national recognition, as the Bulldogs were once cellar dwellers, but now conference contenders.
Winning speaks for itself and the effort it takes to build a successful baseball program is certainly a milestone.
