CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Washington College head baseball coach Travis Turgeon has announced the hiring of Ted Hurvul as an assistant coach for the Shoremen. Turegon has also announced that Scott Milligan, who served as a volunteer assistant on the staff in 2011-12, has been promoted to a regular assistant coach.
Hurvul's duties will include acting as both the team's pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. He pitched at Division I University of Connecticut (UConn), making 31 career pitching appearances. He was a member of the Huskies' 2010 and 2011 NCAA Division I Tournament teams, pitching in the 2010 tournament.
During his collegiate summers, Hurvul pitched in the prestigious Shenandoah Valley League and the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). In the summer of 2010, Hurvul was coached by Turgeon while playing in the NECBL.
A native of Monroe, CT, Hurvul was an All-League scholastic pitcher at Masuk High School. He graduated from UConn with a degree in Coaching and Administration in 2012.
Milligan joined the team's staff last season as a volunteer after a very successful nine-year run as a head baseball coach at a pair of Eastern Shore high schools - Colonel Richardson and Kent County, posting a combined record of 116-75 and earning All Mid-Shore Coach of the Year honors three times and Maryland State Association of Baseball Coaches District VIII Coach of the Year once.
A 1993 graduate of Division II Bluefield State College with a B.S. in Middle/Adolescent Education, Milligan was a two-time All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection during his collegiate playing days.
The 2012-13 academic year will be the Shoremen's first with Turgeon as head coach. Turgeon served as the team's Associate Head Coach in 2011-12 and was promoted in June, filling the vacany left by the retirement of Al Streelman '69. The Shoremen won a program-record 28 games last spring, advancing to the Centennial Conference Championship Game for the first time ever.
