Coach Andersen enjoyed his most successful season as a member of the program in 2017, helping guide the program to its 14th NCAA Tournament appearance and first in six years. The Warriors won 35 games – the most in 13 seasons – and boasted eight all-conference selections, four all-region nods and one Academic All-American. They led the Conference in multiple offensive categories including highest team batting average. The pitching staff posted a league-best 2.19 ERA with five different pitchers.

In his second season, he helped produce two all-conference honorees in 2015 as a young Merrimack squad nearly captured a spot in the NE-10 Championship. His leadership also played a role in Merrimack’s return to the postseason in 2014 after the Warriors advanced to the NE-10 Quarterfinals for the first time since 2011.
Coach Andersen is available for private lessons for players up through the 6th grade. He will also be conducting softball clinics.
