Coach Matthew Jordan chats with members of the Lowcountry Prep School baseball team behind the school last week. The newest Fighting Marlins team will begin play in March.

Lowcountry Preparatory School is fielding its first varsity baseball team this spring.
Practice began this month with coach Matthew Jordan and assistant coach Don Alford.
“Our first practice was a great success,” Jordan said. “We quickly identified strengths to build upon and areas for improvement.”
He added that he is “honored to be in on the ground floor of a program that promises to be a major asset to the school’s athletic department.”
The team’s first game is scheduled for March 12.
“I’m really glad that our school has started a team-we’ve got plenty of talent to leverage,” said Thomas DesChamps, a sophomore and an experienced baseball player.
Headmaster Scott Gibson agrees.
“The idea behind launching the team was to respond to demand from our students and our parents. I have a feeling that coaches Jordan and Alford will teach our student-athletes both great character and great ball skills in short order.”
