Longtime AUM baseball coach Q.V. Lowe announces retirement


The only coach the AUM baseball program has ever known has announced he's retiring after 28 seasons.

Longtime Warhawk head coach Q.V. Lowe started the AUM baseball program in 1987. Through the years he's collected 1,063 wins. He's had 21 seasons with 30 wins or more and has also led AUM to three NAIA World Series trips.

During his tenure, the Warhawks suffered just two losing seasons -- Lowe's first two years. He finishes with a 1,063-588-5 record.

"I have been coaching since I was 23 years old," Lowe said in a statement. "I still love coaching and everything about it, but I think it is time to move on. I have watched this program grow from the ground up and am incredibly proud of it. It took a lot of hard work and a lot of support from the community, but we were able to get it done and have a lot of fun along the way. AUM is home to me and I hope to be able to stay around and help in any way that I can. I am completely at peace with my decision to retire."

Lowe's retirement is effective July 31.
