A year after the Elks memorable championship season, The Bend Elks will try to repeat under the leadership of Bend Elks General Manager and Head Coach Casey Powell.
The 2016 coaching staff will be lead by Bend Elks General Manager Casey Powell. Casey grew up in Bend, OR. Powell graduated from Mountain View High School before continuing on to star on the baseball team at Linfield College. He has experience assistant coaching at Linfield College, head coaching at Whitman College, assistant coaching at Seattle University, and most recently head coaching at Mountain View High School. He has coached for the Bend Elks six separate seasons. Casey has spent the last year assisting in the management change as the Bend Elks General Manager and will continue with that position year round.
Casey is proud for another opportunity to coach the Bend Elks. The opportunity to not only create a roster, but also coach the team, is rare for summer collegiate teams. This should give the Elks a unique edge over other teams in the West Coast League.
The Bend Elks are sad to see some of the 2015 coaches leave our program to focus on their collegiate teams, but are proud to have pitching coach Alan Embree back with Powell. The experience that Powell and Embree bring in recruiting and coaching are an invaluable asset for the Elks. These two coaches have already been hard at work creating and almost finalizing our 2016 roster, which will be released soon.
