After seven years in the Wauwatosa West baseball program, the last three as coach Chad Mateske's top varsity assistant, Jason Borski has taken over as the Trojans' head coach this spring.
Borski coached the Trojans' junior varsity from 2008 to 2012 before moving up to varsity in 2013. His experience goes back before that, however, as he was the head JV baseball coach at Cedarburg High School (2006-07) and Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School (2005-06).
He has also been an assistant AAA Legion Coach for the Wisconsin Rapids Rangers (2004), the head varsity reserve coach for La Crosse Aquinas (2004), seventh-grade assistant coach at La Crescent, Minnesota (2003), and Junior Legion assistant coach, Wisconsin Rapids (2000-03).
At Tosa West, Borski has also been a weight room supervisor (2015) and the BSU Club co-adviser (2014-present).
A member of the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association since 2005, Borski has been a baseball camp coordinator/coach for various camps from ages 6-18 starting in 1999.
He graduated from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a bachelor of science in exercise/sport sci-teaching and a minor in psychology.
Borski has nine returning letter winners, including five starters, two who were all-division players.
Leading the way are Jacob Greenberg (starter), an all-division first-team outfielder, and Myles Fish, an all-division second-team catcher.
Other starters are William Jushka, Jake Hronek and JJ Morgan. Joining them are returning letter winners Nick Price, Ian Newton, Jacob Klippel and Jake Brophey.
Borski does have some promising newcomers to call on.
Jason Tendler, Tyler Shackmuth, Ryan Greener and Logan Scharf received some experience last year at the varsity level toward the end of the season, and Price pitched effectively in a couple of games last year.
Ernie LaSpisa, Sam Bauer and Jordan Ingebretson are joining the team as first-time varsity players.
'LeRoy Coleman was injured last year, and we're excited to see what he'll bring to the program this upcoming season.'
Borski expects another season facing some good competition.
