Scott Renninger is a veteran of the Westminster College Department of Athletics as he enters his 35th year as either a coach or an administrator.
The 2012-13 academic year marks Renninger’s 14th year as head coach of the men’s tennis team and his eighth as head coach of the women’s squad. He owns a 71-124 (.364) record as men’s coach and 85-40 (.680) mark as women’s coach.
Renninger, the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Women’s Tennis Coach of the Year for three straight years from 2006-08, led the Titan women to runner-up finishes at the PAC Championships in each of the last six seasons, including the 2011-12 team that set the school record for wins in a season with a perfect 18-0 record.
As the Titan men’s coach, Renninger led the team to an improvement in wins in each of his first three seasons including the 2002 team that went 10-6, a win total that was duplicated by the 2004 team that went 10-9. Two of Renninger’s men’s teams (2004, 2006) placed second in the PAC.
Renninger has served on the Titan coaching staff since arriving in New Wilmington in 1978. He served as an assistant coach for the Titan football team from that time until 2004, working with both the offensive line and special teams while also serving as administrative assistant for the program.
In 1999, he served as interim co-head football coach with Sean Kelly when then-head coach Gene Nicholson took a medical leave of absence. Renninger also served as head baseball coach at Westminster for 21 seasons from 1979-99, compiling a career record of 253-284-3 (.471).
A 1966 graduate of Heidelberg, Renninger and his wife, Phyllis, live in New Wilmington. They have three children: Angie (a 1997 Westminster graduate), Scooter, and T.J. (a 2008 Westminster graduate).
