Alan Woitas in as new Cathedral head baseball coach

NEW ULM — Alan Woitas is the new head baseball coach at New Ulm Cathedral.

He replaces Bob Weier, who retired from that spot after last season.

Woitas is also a math teacher, the head boys’ head basketball coach and Athletic Director at Cathedral.

Woitas will be assisted on the varsity level by Ryan Weier.

Holding down three jobs is not strange territory for Woitas. His father, Bruce, is the Athletic Director, head girls’ basketball coach and head baseball coach at Sleepy Eye St. Mary’s.

“I have learned from him that you have to have a good work ethic, and obviously he is very passionate about everything that he does,” Alan Woitas said. “He is passionate about basketball and baseball and also providing a positive influence for the student-athletes. That is something that I hope I can do as well in the roles that I have.”

Woitas said that he very much enjoys coaching.

“It is not a job but is more of a privilege and an honor to do.”
