  • The Herkimer County Community College softball coaching staff has been selected by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association as its 2013 NJCAA Division III National Coaching Staff of the Year.
    The NFCA, professional growth organization for fastpitch softball coaches from all competitive levels of play, announced its selection June 13.
    Head coach P.J. Anadio and assistant coaches Dan Stalteri, Steve Speno and Stephen Sydoriw led the Generals to the program’s first ever national championship in Rochester, Minnesota. The 2013 team finished the season with a 43-2 overall record and won Region III and Mountain Valley Conference titles.
    Anadio has guided his teams to a 136-33 record during his four seasons as coach. He was named Mountain Valley Conference Coach of the Year and Region III Coach of the Year in both 2011 and 2013. Anadio was also recognized as NJCAA National Coach of the Tournament during the 2013 National Championship.
    Stalteri joined the coaching staff in 2010, serving as the team’s hitting instructor and camp instructor, and also assisting with community relations and recruiting. Speno has been an assistant coach for two years, serving as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. Sydoriw completed his first season with the softball program this year; he serves as first base coach, works with the outfielders and throws batting practice.
    “This is the result of surrounding myself with some incredible people who share the same core values and beliefs that I have and that this institution has,” Anadio said. “We are in the business of shaping young peoples’ lives and nurturing their growth as students, athletes and community members. The amount of time and effort poured in by these coaches is just a small representation of the selflessness these individuals possess.”
    “This is a great honor for coach Anadio and his staff,” athletic director Donald Dutcher added, “and is a testament to the leadership, time and dedication they put forward to provide our student athletes the true college experience both in the classroom and on the playing field. I am very happy they have been recognized nationally for all their efforts.”
