Billy Emerson now has one more significant achievement to add to an already accomplished list of baseball milestones and involvements.
The Vienna native and resident recently was chosen to be inducted into St. Paul VI Catholic High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame. The 1989 Madison High School graduate is the current head baseball coach and athletic director at Paul VI.
“It was exciting to hear about being honored like this,” Emerson said. “Being a part of Paul VI is awesome. It’s one of the best high-school athletic programs in the country.”
Emerson’s Paul VI baseball teams have won 295 games during his 16 seasons as head coach – from 2003 to 2012, then from 2017 to the present. Under Emerson, the Panthers have won multiple conference (three) and Division I private-school state (four) titles and have been nationally ranked eight times.
