Kelsch & Staff Excited to Lead Young Panthers

2021 baseball team

Coach Robin Kelsch took over the baseball program in the spring of 2020.  While last season ended as quickly as it got started because of the Covid pandemic, he did return to the helm this spring for the 2021 season.  This season was Coach Kelsch’s 12th as the head baseball coach.  This is his 4th stint as the Augusta Panther baseball coach.

Coach Kelsch is very excited to be working with a group of young men that share his commitment to establishing a successful baseball program.  The 2021 team had 23 players with many underclassmen who will return next season.  The Panthers were able to compete at both the junior varsity and varsity levels this year and gain valuable experience.  Coach Kelsch is very excited about the future of Augusta Panther baseball.

Joining Coach Kelsch on the Panther baseball staff as assistants this year were Coach Roy Machen and Coach John Cline.

Coach Kelsch will be starting his 11th year as the principal at Augusta Independent School in the fall of 2021.  In his 24 years at AIS, he has served in many capacities, including teacher, coach, Athletic Director and Assistant Principal.
