Windsor, ON – 10th year St. Clair College Women’s Softball Head Coach Doug Wiseman has been named the inaugural Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) Coach of the Year.  The OCAA is presenting this Coach of the Year Award for the first time in its existence and Wiseman overcame nominees from across all sports in the association.

Wiseman led the Saints to a historic undefeated season in the fall of 2022 capped by St. Clair’s 5th OCAA championship in program history and the first since 2014.  The last OCAA women's softball team to go undefeated was in 2011 but none have reached the milestone of a 24-0 record.

The Saints only allowed 20 total runs against which averaged out to less than one per game but also broke three OCAA team regular season records including most RBI in a season (253), most hits in a season (318), and most runs in a season (277).  

St. Clair garnered plenty of OCAA women's softball major awards including Wiseman's 5th OCAA Coach of the Year selection. The Saints also won the Canadian Collegiate Softball Association national title and including exhibition, regular season and championship play were an astounding 34-0.

Wiseman will be honoured at the 10th OCAA Hall of Fame ceremony which is being hosted by St. Clair College at their Centre for the Arts campus in downtown Windsor on Monday, May 1st.
