Bishop Ward Baseball Coach Dennis Hurla

Bishop Ward Coach Dennis Hurla has himself a baseball dynasty, New York Yankees-style. In May, the Hurla-helmed Cyclones completed an unprecedented four-peat, winning a fourth consecutive 4A state championship. The victory was the sixth state title since Hurla's reign at Bishop Ward began in 1997. Hurla's Cyclones had to fight for their latest state championship, losing three out of the season's first six games. But the Cyclones rallied to win 19 of the final 20 games. The Cyclones swept through the playoffs, eventually blowing out Eudora 16-3. When his teams aren't winning the state title, they're at least finishing second (1997 and 2000). A year ago, the Kansas Association of Baseball Coaches named Hurla the 4A Baseball Coach of the Year after his Cyclones captured their third state title. When the 2007 baseball season starts, we're sure Hurla will have his Cyclones coached up and his sights set on state title No. 5.
