NORFOLK, VA-- Eric Folmar has resigned his position as an assistant baseball coach at Old Dominion University to accept a similar position at Penn State, as announced today by Monarch head coach Jerry Meyers.

A native of Chambersburg, PA., Folmar graduated from ODU in 1999 with a degree in health and physical education. He spent a total of eight years at ODU, four as a starting infielder, and four as an assistant coach.

Folmer played second base, third base and catcher for ODU from 1996-99, leading the Monarchs to three appearances in the CAA championship game. At one stretch, Folmar started 168 straight games from his freshman year to the biginning of his senior year.

His best season was 1998 when he hit .303, scored 32 times and led the team in sacrifice hits with 17. As a freshman in 1996, Folmar started at second base and helped lead ODU to the CAA championship and the NCAA Regional in Clemson, SC.

"Eric is an outstanding young man," said Meyers. "His work ethic, passion for the game and love of ODU was a big help to me and the program. I wish him the best of luck in his new position."

Eolmar is married to form Lady Monarch field hockey All-American, Kim Miller. Kim and Eric have a one year old son, Bryce.
