Co-Head Coach - John Kruk

Seacrest parent and ESPN analyst John Kruk is the head coach of the Lady Rays varsity softball team. Kruk, a former major leaguer who played for four years with the Padres, five years with the Phillies and his final year with the White Sox, looks forward to coaching the girls and says his goal is to build the program. Kruk coached junior varsity baseball during the 2014-2015 and the 2015-2016 school years. He stresses that his coaching style is about encouraging his players to improve, helping them learn from their mistakes, identifying talent, and rewarding hard work. We can't wait to watch the Lady Rays play next spring under Coach Kruk's leadership.

Born and raised in Naples, Jaclyn Traina is returning to her roots and joining Seacrest Country Day School as Co-Head Coach of the Varsity softball team and a Lower School Teaching Assistant (images below).
