ADOPT-A-CHANT CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN AGAIN SPREADS HOLIDAY JOY

For the fifth consecutive year, SAAC’s Adopt-A-Chant Christmas Campaign was held in December. The campaign’s 2014 edition provided a happier holiday season for 20 children of Pee Dee Elementary. Items valuing approximately $3,000 and ranging from bicycles and tablets to clothes and stocking stuffers were donated by student-athletes, coaches and administrators in the Department of Athletics and delivered to the children, whose families would otherwise be unable to afford them.

FIFTH SAAC SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE HELD

Coastal Carolina University student-athletes returned to Pee Dee Elementary to once again deliver school supplies donated by the Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics as part of its annual SAAC School Supply Drive. Juniors Mike Morrison and Tyler Chadwick of the baseball team and junior Jessica Gelibert of the women’s track and field team delivered the items to the school and spent time in numerous classrooms interacting with many of the students. Items provided included backpacks, binders, folders, notebooks, pencil boxes, crayons, dry erase markers and glue sticks. The donation marked the fifth consecutive School Supply Drive that has assisted Pee Dee Elementary School, a Title I school in Horry County that services approximately 800 students. Title I is the largest federal assistance program for the nation’s schools. The goal of Title I is to provide a high-quality education for every child. The program provides extra help to students who are furthest from meeting the standards the state has set for all children. Title I serves children through school-wide programs and targeted assistance programs. The programs generally offer smaller classes, additional teachers and assistants, training for staff, extra time for instruction, and mentoring.

Coastal Carolina student-athletes took the time to give back to the community by reading Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree” to 22 Horry County elementary schools as part of the United Way of Horry County Caring for Kindergarteners program. A total of 95 Chanticleer student-athletes among Coastal’s 18 intercollegiate athlete programs, along with members of the cheerleading team, coaches and athletic administrators, participated in reading the timeless classic to 103 kindergarten classes. Upon completing the book, the young students were able to put the lessons they learned on display by drawing pictures and creating their own greeting cards to be distributed to elderly, homebound citizens throughout Horry County. The kindergarteners’ cards will be attached to one of several hundred gift baskets intended for the senior shut-ins as part of the annual “Make Someone’s May Day” program, now in its 14th year. The event extended a partnership between Coastal Carolina University and the United Way of Horry County that has existed since 2002 as a means of giving back to the community.

RECORD TURNOUT: OVER 200 YOUTHS PARTICIPATE IN BASEBALL’S CLINIC

The Coastal Carolina baseball program hosted its annual free clinic in January, instructing a record turnout of more than 200 6 to 12 year olds at the Ripken Experience Complex. The three-hour camp, made possible with help from the Mike Pruitt Foundation for the Advancement of Youth Baseball in Horry County, focused on hitting, base running, fielding and throwing fundamentals. “We could not be more pleased with the turnout,” said head coach Gary Gilmore. “We certainly hope these kids can take away some fundamentals to help them, but the most important thing is that these kids have fun.”

SOFTBALL GOES RED FOR WOMEN WITH BARRAGE OF HOME RUNS

In addition to volunteering at the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk in Myrtle Beach in October, the Coastal Carolina softball team took part in the organization’s Go Red for Women program during the 2015 season. The campaign to raise awareness and money to combat heart disease, the number one killer of women in the United States, gave the public an opportunity to join head coach Kelley Green and the rest of the program in the fight with flat donations or by pledging a dollar amount for each home run hit by a Coastal player during the season. The Chanticleers finished the year with a Big South-record 84 homers, and a total of over $2,000 was raised for the cause.

TRACK TEAMS RUN, JUMP AND THROW WITH HOME SCHOOLERS The Coastal Carolina University men’s and women’s track and field programs held their traditional “Run, Jump and Throw with the Chants” event for more than 50 home school students during an October afternoon. Home-schooled children ranging in ages from 5 to 17 who regularly take part in physical education classes through the University got the opportunity to experience various track and field events and receive instruction on the basic fundamentals from Coastal Carolina student-athletes and coaches. The event started with a warm-up jog around the track followed by stretching exercises. Participants were then divided up into groups based on their ages and rotated among stations for relay running, hurdles, long jump, high jump and the javelin. The track and field programs have held numerous Run, Jump and Throw events each year since 2009 with students from Pee Dee Elementary.

Coastal Carolina University student-athletes participated in numerous community service projects in 2014-15.

ENHANCEMENTS

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN The baseball team returned to campus and a new state-of-the-art facility in Springs Brooks Stadium for the start of the 2015 season, following a renovation that kept the old playing surface intact, but improved the surrounding amenities. The ballpark includes new grandstands, concession stands, a team store, coaches’ offices, student-athlete locker rooms and lounges, a team meeting space, a stateof-the-art scoreboard, an athletic training facility, a laundry facility and premium fan and media areas. Additionally, the 33,000-square foot project expanded the former 850-seat Watson Stadium into the new 2,500-seat Springs Brooks Stadium. As a result of grass berms down both foul lines and a boardwalk around the outfield wall, the stadium has the potenital to accommodate between 5,000-6,000 fans for events like an NCAA

postseason tournament. The stadium officially opened on Feb. 13 as Coastal Carolina defeated Old Dominion 4-0 as part of the annual Caravelle Resort Tournament. Prior to the game, head coach Gary Gilmore threw out the ceremonial first pitch and kissed home plate. “This has been a day that I have dreamed about for a long, long time,” Gilmore said after the season-opening win. “This stadium, it’s a culmination of a lot of dreaming, a lot of hard work and a lot of sweat by a whole lot of people. It’s not just me. I’m a very blessed man.” During their first season in the new ballpark, the Chanticleers posted a 21-12 home record with wins over the likes of thenNo. 11 North Carolina, Clemson and then-No. 7 South Carolina. Additionally, the ballpark played host to the two largest regularseason, on-campus crowds in school history

with a capacity crowd of 3,086 vs. South Carolina and a standing-room-only crowd of 2,825 vs. Clemson. The Chanticleers ended the regular season ranked 42nd in the NCAA in attendance. Coastal Carolina finished the season runner-up in the Big South Conference Championship, earned an at-large berth to the NCAA Tournament with a RPI of 18 and appeared as the No. 2 seed in the College Station Regional hosted by Texas A&M.

TEAL TURF INSTALLATION AT BROOKS STADIUM COMPLETED

The Coastal Carolina football and women’s lacrosse programs will compete on a new playing surface beginning with the 2015-16 academic year after Benton Field at Brooks Stadium received a colorful facelift this spring. The turf installation project began in January with the stripping of the natural grass and continued with the installation of drainage systems through the months of February and March. The first pieces of turf were then laid on April 2 and the project was completed later that month. The project had a budget of $1.2 million and will give the athletic programs more versatility and options for both practice and game days. Artificial turf versus a grass playing surface will help alleviate practice space challenges as well as provide a safe and durable option if there is inclement weather. Also, the quality of the playing surface will remain consistent throughout several seasons including postseason football and, in the spring, women’s lacrosse, which is typically contested on artificial turf. The more versatile surface will also provide the University the opportunity to host non-athletic special events. Medallion Athletic Products of Mooresville, N.C., partnered with Shaw Sports Turf for the project contract after being selected through the State of S.C. procurement process.

TENNIS CHRISTENS NEW COMPLEX The men’s and women’s tennis programs moved into the Coastal Carolina Tennis Complex to start the 2015 season and combined to post a 12-1 home record while winning a pair of regular season Big South Conference Championships. The new facility consists of 12 US Open-style courts surrounded by bleachers and rocking chairs for the public’s viewing pleasure. Additionally, the $2 million complex includes lighting, LED scoreboards, a state-ofthe-art speaker system, equipment storage areas, concessions, restrooms and a 3,000-square-foot clubhouse with coaches’ offices, student-athlete locker rooms and a lounge.

The facility, which opened in March 2015, allows the Department of Athletics in conjunction with Aramark Food Services to offer nutritious meal options for student-athletes. Proper nutrition is key to improving athletic performance, and also plays a major role in recovering from activity and injury.

EXPERIENCE: 20TH YEAR AT COASTAL CAROLINA

NCAA College Station Regional • Coastal Carolina returned to campus, finishing 42nd nationally in attendance, and returned to prominence on the national scene. They were ranked in each of the last eight weeks of the regular season and were the #2 seed at the NCAA College Station Regional. • Coastal was one of eight teams to have both an RPI and Strength of Schedule among the nation’s top 20. • Coastal faced eight teams that advanced to an NCAA Regional, was 6-3 versus the teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and 1-1 versus the Southeastern Conference. Coastal defeated Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Clemson and Wake Forest. The Chants lost at North Carolina then dropped the first two games of a weekend series at Florida State before rallying to win game three. Coastal beat South Carolina, 9-8, in 11-innings and fell 8-1 to Texas A&M in the NCAA Regional to close the season. • On six occasions this season, Coastal Carolina lost two straight games but rallied to avoid a three-game setback each time. • This year marked the 26th Big South Championship to be contested and, by reaching the final this season, Coastal has played in 18 title games. Coastal has won 13 titles (‘86 • ‘91 • ‘92 • ‘01 • ‘02 • ‘03 • ‘04 • ‘07 • ‘08 • ‘09 • ‘10 • ‘11 • ‘12) and been runner-up five times (‘90 • ‘98 • ‘99 • ‘05 • ‘15). • With a 13-2 win versus Longwood in game two of that series, Coastal’s Gary Gilmore became the first Big South baseball coach to win 300 league games. In 20 years, he is now 310-131, a .703 winning percentage, versus Big South foes. • Coastal and Mercer were the only two teams to have at least 60 home runs and 60 sacrifice bunts. Coastal hit 62 home runs (11th-best in the NCAA) and laid down 63 sac bunts (17th). Mercer hit 66 home runs (sixth) and had 79 sac bunts (3rd). • Coastal finished the season second in the NCAA by turning 66 double plays.
