WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Baseball Coach Kevin Anderson announced the leadership group for his program Tuesday morning.
Anderson, who is preparing for his 12th season as the skipper of the baseball program, announced that seniors Corbin Lucas and Matt Riegler, as well as junior Ricky Pardo, have been selected as co-captains for the 2015 team.
Additionally, eight players have been selected to represent their respective classes within the team's leadership structure.
"We have found that this structure works the best for us," Anderson said. "The student-athletes have ownership of the program and it generally makes everything run smoother.
"I look forward to working with all of these young men this coming season."
The nine upperclassmen selected have a combined seven All-Conference honors and an average GPA of 3.43.
Eight of the nine earned Dean's List honors last spring.
"These players are true student-athletes," Anderson said. "I can think of no better example of how to succeed academically and athletically than these guys."
Shenandoah opens the 2015 campaign on February 14 with a non-league doubleheader versus Misericordia.
