Kevin Fahy, who led Gloucester to a 15-7 record this season, has resigned as baseball coach.

Athletic director Leon Harris said that Fahy stepped down to spend more time with his young family.

This year, Gloucester qualified for the South Jersey Group 1 playoffs and won a first-round game before being eliminated by Pennsville, which will meet Audubon in Friday's sectional final.

"Kevin did a terrific job for us, and he will certainly be missed by our administration and his players," Harris said in an email.

Fahy had been the baseball coach for six seasons. He said he would continue to serve as an assistant basketball coach at the school.

"We had our second child on April 27, and it's tough coaching back-to-back sports," said Fahy, who is an eighth-grade math teacher in the district.

He was happy with this season's results.

"We had just four starters returning and not much pitching experience," Fahy said. "We had so many young guys who exceeded expectations."

Harris said that he had no particular replacement in mind and that Gloucester would advertise the position both within the district and outside.
