Kiewiet returns to be a part of the Waterloo Bucks

Posted: Updated:

 The Waterloo Bucks have announced former field manager Travis Kiewiet will return to the team as a coach.  Kiewiet, who stepped down as Waterloo's manager this past October, will join the team as a part-time volunteer assistant.  The Dike, Iowa native joins skipper Tony Manville and coaches Jeremy Massie and Aaron Rea to form Waterloo's coaching staff for the team's 21st season of play.                

Kiewiet guided the Bucks for the last three seasons, compiling a 130-81 record.  He was named the Northwoods League's Manager of the Year in 2013 after setting a new league record for wins with 51 and guiding Waterloo to their first trip to the playoffs since 2002.  Over the past two seasons, the Bucks have the most wins of any summer-collegiate team in the nation.

Kiewiet sits third in team history in managerial wins, sitting behind Eric Snider (161-86) and Darrell Handelsman (160-108).  Prior to being named Waterloo manager in October of 2011, Kiewiet was a member of the team's coaching staff from 2008 through 2011, working under former managers Jason Nell and Pete Lauritson.
