Club Elects New Board
May 9, 2007
The Carnegie Mellon Baseball Club has announced several changes to the executive board. After two years as team President, Ryan Comes has stepped down to focus on schoolwork and research. Rising junior Jon Coens has been elected to serve as President for the next year.
Coens, the current treasurer, has been a member of the board since the fall of his freshman year. Comes was pleased with move, noting, "Jon has been an active member of the board for two years and has the experience necessary to run the team. He is hard working and I believe he will be able to balance the demands of school work and the job."
The players also elected a new captain, as rising junior Brian Tabata takes over for Matt Corbett, who is graduating. Tabata is the team's starting catcher and has been on the board for the past year as equipment manager.
Replacing Coens as treasurer is rising sophomore James Langhauser. Langhauser joined the board in the fall as secretary and has learned how the team operates.
With the exception of Tabata's appointment as captain, all changes will take effect at the beginning of the fall semester.
