Former Lyon College Scot named new baseball coach at UA-Monticello

MONTICELLO, Ark. (AP) - The new baseball coach at the University

of Arkansas at Monticello is familiar with the program, since the

Henderson State team he has led for the past six years has played

the Boll Weevils several times each season in Gulf South Conference


Arkansas-Monticello athletic director Chris Ratcliff announced

on Wednesday that John Harvey had been hired to coach the Weevils.

Under his tutelage, the Reddies set a single-season record for

wins with 34 in 2009.

Before joining the HSU program as an assistant, Harvey was an

assistant coach at Itawamba Community College. As a college player,

Harvey was a four-year letter winner for the Lyon College Scots.

He is a native of Lufkin, Texas.
