USCB Lewallyn named coach of the year

The accolades are still rolling in from the best season in the University of South Carolina Beaufort baseball program’s brief history, as head coach Bryan Lewallyn 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 best-ever 41-19 record 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.
