The accolades are still rolling in from the best season in USC Beaufort's brief baseball history, as head coach Bryan Lewallyn last week was named the Rawlings-NAIA Mid-Atlantic Region Coach of the Year during the 2013 Rawlings-NAIA Hall of Fame and Awards Luncheon.
While serving as USCB's interim head coach during the 2012 season, Lewallyn led the Sand Sharks to a school-record 41 wins against 19 losses and their first trip to the Avista-NAIA World Series.
Lewallyn was rewarded by being named the second head coach in USCB baseball's four-year history, succeeding Rick Sofield.
Lewallyn and the Sand Sharks began preparations for the 2013 season Monday. They are scheduled to open the campaign Feb. 2 with a home doubleheader against Shawnee State at Richard Gray Sports Complex.
Despite losing seven starting position players, its top two starting pitchers and several other key players, USCB begins the season ranked 21st in the NAIA Preseason Top 25 Coaches Poll and picked to finish third in The Sun Conference.
