Aggies Say ‘Thank You’ to Coach Steve Appel

By Justine Gaskamp on 06/17/2014

Goodwell, Okla.-After spending three seasons as the head coach of the
Oklahoma Panhandle State University baseball team, New Mexico native Steve
Appel has accepted the head coach position at the University of the
Southwest in Hobbs, N.M.

Starting as an assistant for the Aggies in 2010, Appel completed his fourth
season with the team this spring, finishing 2014 with his best record yet.
He has been a hard-working force for the Aggies, bringing in great recruits
who compete well both on the field and in the classroom.

"It has been an honor to help rebuild this baseball program here at OPSU.
This is bittersweet for me, but this decision was made for the best interest
of me and my family," said Appel. " I have made many great memories during
my time here and have had the privilege to work with some great people and
coach many great kids."

Appel added that he is happy with the direction that OPSU’s baseball program
is headed and hopes that the Aggies will continue to improve in future
years. He and his wife Jess look forward to the new opportunities ahead of
them.

Aggie athletics and OPSU administration thank Coach Appel for his years of
service and dedication and wish him and his family the best of luck.
