New hire an addition to USCB Sand Shark soccer coaching staff

University of South Carolina Beaufort women’s soccer coach Ed Heberling has added former Garnder Webb University standout and Armstrong Atlantic State assistant coach Hilary George to his coaching staff for the upcoming season.
George comes to the Sand Sharks after six seasons as an assistant at Armstrong Atlantic. The Pirates went 91-25-13 during her tenure and reached the NCAA Division II Final Four in 2011. During her playing career, George was a first-team All-America selection by the National Christian College Athletic Association as a goalkeeper at Gardner-Webb, where she still ranks second in school history in shutouts in a season (7.5) and career (14.5).
“I am excited to have a coach with Hilary’s experience, knowledge and background join our program,” Heberling said. “Hilary will play a vital role in training our goalkeepers and solidifying our defense this season.”
Heberling is also excited about impact George will have on the Sand Sharks’ strength, conditioning and fitness programs. She is a certified strength and conditioning specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and has experience as a personal trainer.
“It’s not often that you find a coach of her caliber, and I’m excited for coach George to help build USCB soccer into the same caliber of program that our athletics department has come to expect,” Heberling said.
The Sand Sharks begin their second season of competition in the NAIA and Sun Conference with a scrimmage at Coker College on Aug. 18 and return home to begin the season against Brenau (Ga.) at 5 p.m. on Aug. 24.
