Lou-RacioppeLou Racioppe, who has been the baseball coach at Verona High School for the last decade, has stepped down from that position.

Racioppe, who continues as VHS’ football coach, made a quiet announcement to some of his players recently. His resignation has not formally been presented to the Verona Board of Education, and no potential replacements have yet been interviewed.

The coach, who was inducted into the Essex County Football Coaches Hall of Fame this summer, is sanguine about his decision. “After 10 years as the baseball coach at Verona,” he said, “I will look forward to my first spring since 1970 that I will be able to relax during my spring break. I have enjoyed my time as the baseball coach at Verona and I certainly feel that the program is in good shape for whoever will take over.”
