Woodland names new baseball coach

Former Camas baseball standout Mitch Kochis has been named the head baseball coach at Woodland High School.

Kochis was an all-league baseball player at Camas in 2002 and 03 before playing college baseball at Cumberland University and Northwest Nazarene. He is on staff at Woodland as a counselor.

“It’s obvious he has a passion for the game and the desire to continually find ways to improve the program,” said Woodland’s athletic director Paul Huddleston in a press release.

“He’s a perfect fit for our program,” Huddleston noted.

Kochis will be taking over a program that finished second in Class 1A baseball last spring. Woodland now is a Class 2A program, a member of the 2A Greater St. Helens League.

Stephen Short, who coached the Beavers to the championship game last season, is now the coach at Camas.
