The MBCA is excited to have another local coach contribute to our lineup of speakers as Ken Howe will share his baseball wisdom with the association.
Since joining Division III and the Little East Conference in 1998, Ken Howe has led Keene State to four 20-plus-win seasons and three consecutive 30 victory campaigns, including a school record 34 victories in 2008 on the way to capturing its first LEC championship and earning its second straight NCAA tournament berth.
2009 saw the Owls finish near the top of Division III in most offensive categories including #1 in the country in slugging percentage (.588). The Owls also finished second in batting average (.370), 14th in both hits (560) and runs (434) and 17th in homers (51). KSC finished the season 25-16 and made it to the LEC Championship game after bouncing host Southern Maine from the tournament.
Under his direction, the Owls reached the Conference’s postseason tournament on nine occasions, including four trips to the championship game, culminating with last year’s crown. Howe, who was selected as the LEC’s coach of the year in 2008, believes the Owls will be in the hunt for the conference crown once again this spring.
