In his first address to students, Head of School Matt Levinson P '21 shares his perspective on what it means to "hit the brakes."
Girls' Softball Team
A 1977 graduate of Pingry, Coach Carver recalls the great coaches and memories of the three sports he played for Big Blue: football, basketball, and baseball. “I learned a tremendous amount from the coaches and teams I played on while at Pingry. From coach Tommy Johnson to Frank Wozniak and being with Coach Tramontana in his first year as head baseball coach, I learned to love competition and the value of focusing on the details.”
At Hobart and William Smith Colleges, where he earned a degree in Economics, he pursued his baseball interests and played fast pitch men’s softball during his college summers. In 2007, he returned to Pingry to coach the Middle School softball team, and has been the varsity head coach since 2012.
When not coaching Big Blue, Mr. Carver works in the financial services industry (he earned an MBA from New York University), but manages to find time to play slow pitch softball and paddle tennis.
What brings him back, year after year? “I really enjoy the team,” he said. “And I am challenged by getting the best from each player.”
