Yorktown makes it official for head baseball coaching position

Interim tag removed as Nick Meyers takes the heading coach reins
Nick Meyers is officially been named the head baseball coach at Yorktown High School.

No matter how next season unfolds, the  campaign certainly should be more stable and normal for Nick Meyers compared to his first year as a varsity baseball coach at Yorktown High School.

In recent days, Meyers officially was named the Patriots’ head varsity coach for the 2025 campaign, having the interim tag removed for a position he inherited midway through this past season when first-year head coach Josh Cook departed.

With Meyers at the helm, Yorktown went on to win the Liberty District tournament as the top seed, then finished 0-1 in the 6D North Region tourney. The Patriots finished 16-6 overall, 8-3 under Meyers, and won their final five regular-season contests.

“I really want to be back as the head coach,” Meyers said. “Last season was kind of different and crazy, but it went better than I thought.”

Meyers initially joined Cook’s staff as an assistant as the pitching coach. He maintained that responsibility when he took over as head coach.

Meyers is not new to high-school baseball in Northern Virginia. Prior to joining Yorktown’s staff, he was an assistant at Hayfield Secondary School. Meyers graduated from Hayfield in 2013, where he was a member of the varsity baseball team. In college he played club baseball at Coastal Carolina University.

Meyers also played American Legion baseball for Alexandria Post 24 during the summer months in Northern Virginia. His coaching experience also includes leading travel-baseball teams.

Being fully in charge at Yorktown next season, Meyers said a goal is to have the team to think about achieving more than just winning a district championship. He said this past season’s first-round home region-tournament loss was a big disappointment.

“We don’t want to just settle for winning the district anymore. We are capable of doing so much more,” Meyers said. “We won the district this season, then lost steam in the region.”
