Dave Nichol

Coaching ∙ Monaca

 

 

 

 

Dave Nichol denies that he is the only baseball and basketball coach Monaca has ever had, but younger fans cannot remember anyone else. Dave topped the 300 game victory mark as a basketball coach during the 1989-1990 season and his cage teams won the PIAA Class A state title in 1982 and were runners-up in the 1981 WPIAL title tournament. Before becoming head coach, he served as assistant coach for eight years and as junior high coach for two years. His coaching career got off to a flying start when his junior high cagers chalked up a perfect 17-0 record in 1962 and an overall 32-2 record over two seasons. Dave’s baseball teams have also fared well, with a combined 355-136 record his first 25 years, with 13 section titles and PIAA state runners-up recognition in 1985. During his own playing days, Dave starred in football, basketball, and baseball at Monaca High School and was quarterback for two years at Geneva College and Tarkio College in Missouri.
