WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Baseball Coach Kevin Anderson announced Monday the leadership council for his 2012 squad.
Each year, the baseball team elects team captains as well as representatives from each of the four classes to form its leadership group.
Nelson and Scallion are both two-time All-USA South honorees with each also earning All-South Region honors during their careers.
Pendergraft hit .327 last season with 11 starts in 22 contests and is expected to be the team's starting centerfielder this spring.
"This group is essential to what we are trying to do with our program," Anderson said. "They help set our direction and assist the coaching staff in communicating our plans.
"Cory, Jake and Kyle have been leaders since the day they joined us and I am very happy that their teammates have chosen them to lead the team this year."
Shenandoah, coming off of a USA South Conference regular season championship season, opens its 2012 campaign on February 17 against Cortland (N.Y.) State.
