Scott Whitlock, Kennesaw State

Scott Whitlock helped bring Peach Belt Conference softball to national prominence upon Kennesaw State’s rise to the NCAA Division II level in 1995.  In their first year in the Peach Belt and DII, Whitlock’s Owls went 53-5 and won the first softball national championship for the Peach Belt.  In 1996 they did it again, going 49-8 overall for their second straight national title.

In 11 seasons coaching in the PBC, Whitlock guided the Owls to a 174-24 mark, winning eight regular-season championships and six tournament titles.  Kennesaw State went 61-0 against PBC opponents from 1995-98, won nine regional titles and posted 64 wins in 2004 which still stands as the PBC record for wins in a season.

Whitlock was named the National Coach of the Year in 1995 and was a five-time PBC Coach of the Year.  He coached seven PBC Players of the Year, two PBC Freshmen of the Year, 54 All-Conference selections and 32 All-Americans.

He was named to the U.S. National Team coaching staff in 2005, inducted into the NFCA Hall of Fame that same year and into the Georgia Dugout Hall of Fame in 2010.

Whitlock retired from coaching in 2013 with a 997-296 career mark across the NAIA, Division II and Division I.  He currently serves as the senior associate athletic director at Kennesaw State.
