Three Pirates Earn AAC Recognition
In East Carolina’s first baseball season in the American Conference, a group of three Pirates were recognized by the league on Monday night. Junior slugger Luke Lowery and two-way senior Reid Love were tabbed first-team All-AAC. First-year collegiate head coach Cliff Godwin was named the AAC’s coach of the year, as voted on by the league’s eight head coaches, following ECU’s 36-20 regular season and second-place finish in the American. Love, who was the only player to garner both player and pitcher-of-the-week honors in the regular season, was a unanimous first-team selection as a utility player. Lowery authored a team-best 12 home runs, which ranked fourth in the AAC, and became the sixth player in ECU history to earn Collegiate Baseball National Player-of-the-Week accolades in March. Godwin joins Monte Little (Southern Conference, 1977), Gary Overton (Colonial Athletic Association, 1990), Keith LeClair (CAA, 1999 and 2000), Randy Mazey (Conference USA, 2004) and Billy Godwin (C-USA, 2009) as the five ECU managers to be named coach of the year by their respective conferences. The Pirates will open the 2015 AAC Championship on Wednesday, May 20 at Bright House Field against No. 7 seed UCF (31-25) with an 11 a.m. (ET) scheduled first pitch.
