The Spencerville Board of Education has approved Troy Montenery as its’ new Head Baseball Coach, replacing Red Wood. Montenery has been involved in all levels of baseball for many years ranging from youth leagues to varsity head coach. His head varsity coaching experience includes a five-year stint at Delphos Jefferson, where he compiled a 65-48 record, including appearances in the Regional Finals in both 2008 and 2009. The Wildcats set school records with 19 wins in both 2008 and 2009. Montenery is 2nd in career wins and 2nd in career winning percentage at Jefferson.

Montenery, who still teaches at Jefferson, is an Elida resident. He and his wife, Sue, have two sons, Jaret (5th grade) and Luke (4th grade).

“We are very excited to have Troy as our new coach. He is extremely knowledgeable about the game and his passion and enthusiasm are contagious. He has proven the ability to successfully turn around a program. We are excited about the future of Bearcat Baseball with Troy at the helm.” Brian Woods, Athletic Director

“I’m grateful to Spencerville’s Administration and Board of Education for giving me the opportunity to stabilize and improve their High School and Middle School baseball programs. Coach Wood, Coach Stetler, and Coach Wisher put in a considerable amount of time and effort over the last 5 years, whether it be through coaching the players, improving the facilities, or working with the younger levels. I look forward to continuing their efforts, as well as adding new elements to the overall program.” Troy Montenery
