Wilkerson resigns as St. Aloysius baseball coach

Clint Wilkerson stepped down as St. Aloysius’ baseball coach on Wednesday, ending a successful six-year run that included 125 wins and two state championships.

The 31-year-old Wilkerson said he informed St. Al officials of his intention to resign in early June, but family obligations kept him from making it official for nearly three weeks. Wilkerson’s wife, Macy, gave birth to the couple’s second child, Kathleen, on June 9.

“It’s been really, really crazy. It wasn’t like I was trying to hold off. I was just really busy with my family,” Wilkerson said.

Wilkerson took over as St. Al’s coach in 2005. He finished with a 125-50 record and led the Flashes to back-to-back Class 1A championships in 2009 and 2010. The 2009 title was the school’s first since 1976.

Wilkerson was named the Vicksburg Post’s Coach of the Year four times, the Mississippi Association of Coaches Coach of the Year twice, and this year earned the American Baseball Coaches Association Region 6 High School Coach of the Year.
