Always a Norsemen: Former coaches rooting for Newark baseball success

Norm Meier, D.J. Cocks excited about Norsemen chances in Thursday’s state finals

“I wasn’t here for the basketball championship because I was still in high school (at Yorkville), but I saw them on TV, and I was here for the volleyball team’s second run to a state championship. We’re very blessed to have these kinds of kids here at Newark. They’re extremely hard-working … and not to take anything away from those great teams, it wouldn’t bother me if people started thinking of Newark as a baseball school, too. These kids deserve it.”
