Dunedin High School baseball coach Ron Sexton, shown at the City Commission podium Dec. 3, was honored for being named coach of the year by Pinellas County baseball coaches.
DUNEDIN – City commissioners Dec. 3 honored Dunedin High baseball Coach Ron Sexton, who was named 2015 Coach of the Year by the Pinellas County baseball coaches.

The Falcons win-loss record was 24-7. The team was a regional runner-up in the 7A state tournament. The batting average was .330 and pitching staff’s ERA was 1.55, with 11 shutouts, a school record.

At the beginning of the season, the team’s grade-point average was 3.1 and 3.5 at the end.

As a sports mom, Mayor Julie Ward Bujalski said she recognizes that it is hard for student athletes to keep grade-point averages up when they are practicing five to six days a week.

“We moms always appreciate a coach who makes that a priority,” she said.

The Falcons went 6-0 against Pinellas County conference opponents. Sexton also conducted the 46th annual spring tournament, which drew 14 teams.

“This gentleman has gone above and beyond in his season and deserved very much so to get the coach of the year,” Ward Bujalski said.

Sexton said he believes that “good work habits that happen in the high school can translate to the baseball field and vice versa.”

He said he appreciated the support of the community.

“This is baseball heaven to me,” he said. “I moved my family here from Indianapolis, Indiana, five years ago because we were a baseball family trapped in a basketball state.”

He said it was an honor to live in the area and be recognized by the commission with a certificate of recognition.
