Stricklin Nets Extension from Kent State


Scott Stricklin, who guided Kent State to the 2012 College World Series, has been rewarded with a six-year, $300,000 a year extension.


Stricklin has led the Golden Flashes to four straight MAC titles and compiled a 314-165 season spanning eight seasons as coach of his alma mater. Kent State went 47-20 last season, winning the Gary Regional and Eugene Super Regional to reach its first College World Series. In Omaha, the Golden Flashes lost to Arkansas before ending Florida’s season; South Carolina ended their CWS run.


Kent State also announced Monday that it would install lights at Schoonover Stadium for the 2013 season. The school has raised nearly $1 million from private donors since June that will fund other facility projects.
