The resignation was official Friday and made public during the baseball team’s banquet.

In his first season as Riders’ varsity coach, Dieringer helped lead St. Marys to a 20-6 record overall and 7-2 clip in the Western Buckeye League and him his second year, the Roughriders claimed their first WBL title in 14 seasons with a 8-1 WBL record — 17-6 overall — for a co-title.
