Adam Moravick is the new head baseball coach at Seminole. Moravick, 42, takes over for Rob Ciaravino, who was the Warhawks coach the past two seasons. Moravick will be Seminole’s fourth head coach since Jeff Pincus left after the 2016 season.

“I’m super excited about it," Moravick said. “The timing is just right. I got to spend 10 years at Indian Rocks and I’m really proud of what we did there. Now, hopefully, we can have success at Seminole.”

Moravick is no stranger to Pinellas County baseball. He played at Indian Rocks and began his coaching career in 2004 as an assistant at Largo. He was head coach at Northside Christian from 2005-07, then an assistant at Seminole in 2008-09 under Greg Olsen.

He became head coach at IRC in 2010. His overall record was 150-89, which makes him the school’s all-time winningest baseball coach.

Seminole was 14-15 last season but made an impressive run in the postseason. They upset East Lake in the district tournament final, defeated Sarasota in 12 innings in the regional quarterfinal and got past East Lake again in eight innings in the regional semifinal. The season ended with a loss to Plant City, which went on to win the state championship.

The Warhawks haven’t had a winning season since 2015, when they were 16-13. The school won a state championship in 2001.

Indian Rocks Christian was 11-15 last season.

Moravick will continue to teach physical education at Starkey Elementary in Largo.

“I grew up in this community,” Moravick said. “I know all about the traditions at Seminole and the expectations. I’m hoping to bring some stability to the program, to work hard and have fun.”
