Killian’s baseball win over neighborhood rival Southridge this week had special meaning for coach Angel Herrera.

The Cougars (8-3) defeated the Spartans 5-3 on Wednesday, marking Herrera’s 200th career win and a milestone for the longtime Cougars coach, who has helped over 60 players make it to college, some of which reached the professional level.

"It means everything to me because it gives me an opportunity to honor my late father with my life and profession with what I've been able to do," Herrera said. "He would have been there and would have been so proud."

Herrera has a career record of 200-92-2 and has coached in Miami-Dade County for 16 seasons.

In his time at Killian, Herrera has led the Cougars to seven regional playoff appearances, four district championships and three GMAC titles.
