      Head Softball Coach Fred Dohrmann Earns 600th Career Victory at Widener

      37 Seasons, 600 wins

      Widener's 10-2 victory over Cabrini pushed softball coach Fred Dohrmann's victories to 600.

      Widener University head softball coach Fred Dohrmann, who is in his 37th season on the sidelines, recently earned his 600th career victory as the pilot of the perennially successful program. His 600 victories are also the most wins by one coach in one sport in school history.

      Dohrmann reached the milestone in Widener’s 10-2 victory over Cabrini to complete a sweep of a twinbill against the Cavaliers on March 23.

      The team is off to another strong start this spring and concluded the opening weekend of April with a 14-6 overall record after earning a 10-4 road victory over Messiah, which was ranked ninth in the country at the time by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) after advancing to the national championship game last spring. Messiah had also won 46 straight regular season games against conference opponents before being knocked off by Dohrmann and the Pride on April 2.

      Widener’s softball program has been a model for success under Dohrmann’s leadership. The program most recently won a school-record 31 games in 2016, and more importantly, registered a 3.47 team GPA during the spring semester. In addition, the team produced the Class of 2016 Valedictorian and a CoSIDA Academic All-America First Team selection in Alie Alkins, a program-record four players who made the NFCA All-East Region squad and a league-best three student-athletes who were named to the Academic All-MAC Team.

      Dohrmann concluded the opening weekend of April with a 608-492 career record as the head coach of the softball program at Widener. The team is currently in the heart of its conference schedule and will look to qualify for the league’s postseason event for the fourth straight year.
