PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It was quite the day at the office on Wednesday for longtime Widener University softball coach Fred Dohrmann.
His team swept a double-header from Neumann University out in Aston. The 8-5 win in the first game made the 57-year-old Dohrmann the winningest coach in Widener history. In any sport, Victory #537 allowed him to pass former men’s basketball coach C. Alan Rowe on the career wins list. Then the 4-0 victory in the nightcap (win #538) came in Dohrmann’s 1,000th game at the helm of the Pride.
“It was really a great last couple of days,” Dohrmann tells KYW Newsradio. “I mean, really fabulous. I’ve really taken some time to really try and soak [it in]. A thousand games is a lot of play.”
