a coaching legacy in one sport is a remarkable accomplishment. Doing
it in two sports – simultaneously – is extraordinary. Put Scott
Ensworth in the latter category.
Ensworth has had incredible
success as the head coach of the women’s volleyball and softball
teams at the Community College of Beaver County, compiling close to
500 career victories between the two programs. Entering this school
year, Ensworth has amassed 259 victories with CCBC’s softball team,
winning 75 percent of the games he has coached, and 240 victories
with the Lady Titans volleyball team, earning a winning percentage
of 70 percent.
Ensworth began his coaching career in 1977 and saw
almost immediate success on the softball diamond, winning three
consecutive Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference championships
from 1978-1980. He has gone on to win WPCC championships in each
successive decade, winning five titles in the 1990s (1993, 1995,
1996, 1997 and 1999) and six in the new millennium (2000, 2001,
2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006). The Lady Titans were conference
runners-up in 1994, 2004 and 2007.
Enworth’s softball teams
advanced to the Pennsylvania Collegiate Athletic Association State
Championship game eleven times, claiming titles in 1993, 1995, 1996
and 1997, while finishing as state runners-up in 1999, 2000, 2002,
2003, 2004, 2005, 2006.
His accomplishments earned him recognition
from his peers, as Ensworth has been named WPCC Coach of the year 14
times and PCAA Coach of the Year in 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1997.
has had an equally successful tenure as CCBC’s volleyball coach. He
has led the Lady Titans to WPCC championships four times (1994,
1999, 2001 and 2007) and a pair of PCAA state championships in 1999
and 2001. His teams were conference runners-up six times (2002,
2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008) and state title runners-up in 1994
As in softball, Ensworth’s peers also recognized him for
his excellence as a volleyball coach. Ensworth was named WPCC Coach
of the Year on four occasions (1994, 1999, 2001 and 2007) and state
Coach of the Year twice (1999 and 2001)
Ensworth has also spent
time coaching CCBC’s woman’s basketball team, as well as a stint as
an assistant coach for the men’s basketball program. He is currently
the Vice President of Human Resources at CCBC and is involved in
community service with organizations such as the Blackhawk
Recreation Board and Beaver County Mental Health.
A graduate of
Northwestern High School, Ensworth went on to earn a Bachelor's
Degree in Speech Communication from Geneva and a Masters Degree in
Human Resources from LaRoche College. He and his wife, Michaleen,
have two children, Emily and RaeAnn.
