    Mark Cusic - BIO

    Mark Cusic is a travel softball coach that helps girls make the transition from recreational ball players to very competitive club team, middle school and high school team players. Mark began his coaching career in 2010 with the Southern Maryland Youth Tee Ball Organization as a way to work with kids and give back to his local community. From 2010 until now he has worked with and coached girls from ages 4 to 14. His coaching experience includes teams that have won Recreational Slow Pitch League Championships, Recreational Fast Pitch League Championships, Recreational Fast Pitch District Championship, and a second place finish for the Maryland Little League State Championship. He is currently in his fourth year of coaching travel ball and is in his second year with the Hughesville Hustle organization. During his first 3 years of coaching travel ball his teams won 7 (gold/top bracket) tournament championships, finished runner up 5 times throughout the C, B and OPEN classification levels and had a 5th place finish at the USSSA National Championship Northeast. Mark added to his impressive resume with a Softball National Championship title for his then 12U team, which was one of 5, 1st place finishes last year.

    Before becoming a coach Mark spent time serving on active duty with the United Sates Marine Corps and attending college where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business Management with a minor in communication. He uses his communication skills to connect with his players and to establish a very competitive yet fun and learning team environment. Mark takes pride in his volunteer efforts, work ethic and his dedication to the girls and their families on his softball team, both on and off the field.

    2020 WK #3 Coach of the Week (Kristy Scalesi)

    Kristy Scalesi - BIO

    Coach Kristy Scalesi, Wicked 09’ Assistant Coach & Administrator, for Coach of the Week. Coach Scalesi’s experience and knowledge of the game are instrumental to the development of the girls of Wicked 09’. Coach Scalesi was part of the 1996 Hillsdale (OH) Softball State Championship team and as part of that team, was elected to the Ashland County Sports Hall of Fame in 2016.

    Coach Scalesi is committed to helping our youth. Whether it is as a coach of Wicked 09’ or in her professional life as a Pediatric Respiratory Therapist. Coach Scalesi is dedicated to helping the girls of Wicked 09’ become better players, teammates and human beings.

    In her role with Wicked 09’, she does much more than just coach. Coach Scalesi does many things for her team behind the scenes, that often go unnoticed. When she is not coaching, she is doing majority of the team’s scheduling, ordering uniforms and equipment, keeping track of team finances, coordinating fundraisers, communicating with other organizations and planning team building events for the girls. During games, Coach Scalesi is a multi-tasker. She can be found coaching the girls, keeping the book/gamechanger and recording memories for family members using her camera, all at the same time. Her experience, knowledge of the game and all the duties she performs have proven to be invaluable to her fellow coaches, the families and the success of the girls from Wicked 09’. Wicked 09’ is grateful to have Coach Scalesi back for a third year. Thank you Coach Scalesi for all that you do.

    2020 WK #7 Coach, we didn't have any Coaches nominated for week #7.

    I kind of understand only having two coaches of the week in 7 weeks.

    2020 WK #9, #10, #11 Coach, we didn't have any Coaches nominated for week #9, #10 or #11.

    We're going to reevaluate continuing a Coach of the week on TheSoftballZone. If we don't show any interest from the members by nominating a Coach of the week program by week #15 were going to discontinue this award program.

    We will continue having a Team and Player of the week as that seems to be supported very well by the members.

    2020 WK #12, #13, #14, #15,#16 no coach of the week.

    In sixteen weeks we have had only 2 Coaches nominated for Coaches of the week. From the lack of nominees it very clear that the coach of the week program it's something that No One Believes has any value or want to participate, because of that we are ending the coach of the week program officially as of today April 23rd, 2020.

    Sorry Folk,
