Gilmore, seven Chants top All-Sun Belt baseball team

After leading Coastal Carolina to conference’s regular-season title, Chanticleer head coach Gary Gilmore was named Sun Belt Coach of the Year while a total of seven Chants were selected to the Sun Belt All-Conference team in a vote of the league’s head coaches.

The seven Chanticleers voted All-Sun Belt include first team selections Jason Bilous (starting pitcher); Kevin Woodall Jr. (first base); Cory Wood (second base); Seth Lancaster (shortstop); and Zack Biermann (designated hitter) as well as second team picks Matt Eardensohn (relief pitcher) and Parker Chavers (outfield).

Coastal Carolina, ranked as high as 15th nationally this week, will open play at the Sun Belt Tournament, played at the University of Louisiana’s Cajun Field, as the top seed on Wednesday (May 23) and face the lowest remaining seed after the play-in games on Tuesday.
