Baseball Program

Northland Christian School is proud of our baseball program. Cougar Baseball is built upon a culture of selflessness, self-discipline, and TEAM philosophy. Every player is trained to become a leader among his peers and develop a role where he can contribute to the success of the team. "Become the best teammate you can be" is the ethos of the program. The coaching staff is committed to building character, integrity, honor, and accountability in the student-athlete. Our baseball complex is one of the nicest in the city, with a beautiful natural grass field, new clubhouse and a brand new indoor hitting and workout facility. Our proud banner that reads "Grateful for Everything. Entitled to Nothing" hangs in the rafters.

The Cougar varsity baseball team won the TAPPS Division III State Championship this past season! Led by seniors Landon Murray and Bryce Gould, the team went undefeated in district play with a 9-0 record, and advanced through the playoffs to capture the school’s first state title in 25 years. This year's team will again compete for the coveted state title with 5 returning starters and a very talented underclassmen roster. Building a tradition of advancing deep into the postseason, Head Coach Rick Nixon is confident that this team is poised to repeat as State Champs. Nixon is in his fifth year as Head Coach and tenth year as a member of the baseball coaching staff at Northland. He played college baseball for the University of Texas Longhorns and, as a practicing orthopedic surgeon, he has served as the team physician for Northland athletics for the past 17 years. First assistant Brian Fisher, who played his high school baseball at Klein High School and college baseball at Oklahoma City University, is in his fifth year as hitting and defensive coordinator on the staff. Third year assistant Tyler Bremer, who played collegiately at Baylor University and professionally at the AA and AAA level for the Marlins organization, serves as the varsity pitching coach and head junior varsity coach. The middle school team is managed by long-time Northland fixture Monny Webster. This very talented coaching staff focuses on proper player development, starting at the middle school level.

Each year, for the past several years, the Northland baseball program has seen several of its players enter the college ranks. The baseball season will officially start up on January 20th with the varsity team playing in over 30 games including 3 tournaments. The varsity competes in a very competitive TAPPS Division III district, and typically plays a very tough non-district schedule against larger private schools in the area.
