Head Coach

Marc Rardin begins his 11th season as the Head Baseball Coach at Iowa Western Community College.During Rardins time leading the Reiver Baseball program, Coach Rardins teams have rewrote the record books in every facet of the program and made junior college baseball history by winning the Junior College World Series in 2010 and 2012. The first Northern District representative to ever win the junior college world series title. Not to be overlooked and labeled as a fluke title run in 2010. The Reivers finished in 3rd place in 2011 and repeated as National Champions in 2012 - their 2nd National Championship in 3 years. All in all, in 10 seasons at Iowa Western Rardin’s Reivers have participated in 7 Junior College World Series, and have won 8 Regional Titles, and 7 Northern District Titles. In the past 8 years alone no Division 1 junior college baseball program has won more games and more post season championships (regionals, districts, world series) than Iowa Western. 17 titles combined and 378 wins in just the past 8 seasons alone.

Coach Rardin’s Iowa Western successes just didn’t start this past 3 years. The Iowa Western baseball program has been winning and winning big under Coach Rardin since his first season on the job. Rardins teams have averaged nearly 46 wins per season and have a record of 458 wins to only 143 loses in his 10 year stint; that is an amazing .762 winning percentage. In that same 10 year period the Reivers have also accumulated 222 wins to only 32 loses in regular season conference and conference tournament play. This is a record setting .874 winning percentage in conference play. To further describe the level of success under Coach Rardin is to describe the post season numbers. Rardin has coached in 88 postseason games in 10 years. In those 88 games the Reivers have won 64 and only lost 22. That is a postseason winning percentage of .744%. Off the field, Coach Rardin has had just as much success and development of the Iowa Western Baseball program as he has had on the field with the student/athletes. Since Rardin’s arrival the program has made tremendous strides in roster size, budgets, facilities and staff members.

In 2005 Coach Rardin proposed and started the Iowa Western Junior Varsity Roster. That allows another 30 to 35 student/athletes to play the game of baseball at Iowa Western while furthering their education. At that time IWCC athletics didn’t have fulltime assistants for volleyball or softball. With the start up of the JV Baseball program Rardin proposed that some allotment of money brought in through the JV program be used to help with assistants in both the volleyball and softball programs. Since that time IWCC athletics department has blossomed and now has fulltime assistants in 12 of their programs.
With the on campus baseball facility - better know to everyone as “Doc Ross Field” Rardin has changed and upgraded nearly every aspect of it.

New aluminum grandstand seating and a pressbox.
New 9inning scoreboard .
Spacious 3 car door storage shed.
3 Batting cages directly behind third base dugout.
New 8ft high wood fence down left field line and black synthetic chain link down the right field line.

A $370,000.00 synthetic turf infield (Ram Turf) was completed December 1 of 2010.
In March of 2011 a 40ft wide and 80ft long hitting pavilion was completed down the left field line. The surface is also completely field turf inside. The entire pavilion is netted in for one large batting practice area or can be divided for group hitting as well. It also houses the Reivers home side bullpen.

Within Coach Rardin’s 10 years here as head baseball coach, the Iowa Western baseball program now stakes claim as having one the finest junior college baseball facilities in the Midwest. Before coming to Iowa Western, Coach Rardin had the privilege of working under some of the most highly respected coaches at their touted programs. In the fall of 2003 Rardin worked under Scott Crampton at Lamar Community College in Lamar, Co. From 2000 to 2002 seasons Rardin was an assistant for Sky Smeltzer at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ. Coach Rardin came to Yavapai from Big 12 baseball power Baylor University. Rardin was at Baylor for 2 years as the volunteer coach and worked with the pitching staff. While at Baylor, Coach Rardin worked under Head Coach Steve Smith. Coach Rardin started his coaching career in Bluefield, Virginia at Bluefield College. While at Bluefield, Rardin was pitching coach.

Coach Rardin also has five summers of coaching experience in the Jayhawk and Northwoods League summer collegiate leagues.
Coach Rardin started his college career at Indian Hills Community College in Centerville, IA. Rardin transferred to Iowa Wesleyan in Mt. Pleasant, IA. Marc Rardin grew up outside of Lamont, Iowa located in the northeast part of the state. He graduated from Starmont High School where he enjoyed a successful athletic career, lettering 14 times in 4 different sports during his four school years.
