Floyd hired as Warhawks' AD


Elizabeth and Nick Floyd.


ECU, staff reports

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Louisiana Mon­roe hired Nick Floyd as its new ath­letic di­rec­tor Thurs­day, of­fi­cially end­ing Floyd’s run with East Carolina ath­let­ics that dates back to 2001.

Floyd was serv­ing as ECU’s ex­ec­u­tive as­so­ciate di­rec­tor, a po­si­tion he held since 2004.

The Warhawks play in the Sun Belt Con­fer­ence.

“After reviewing at length a very experienced and excellent pool of over 50 potential candidates, Nick Floyd's name rose to the top of the list. He has had incredible experience on the institutional as well as conference levels,” Richard Giannini, who served as a consultant to the ULM AD search committee, said in a release by the school.


East Carolina fresh­man Spencer Brick­house was named a sec­ond-team fresh­man All-Amer­i­cab by D1Base­ball.com on Thurs­day.

Brick­house, who al­readey gar­nered Base­ball Amer­ica and Col­le­giate Base­ball fresh­man All-Amer­ica hon­ors, bat­ted .310 with 28 RBIs and 36 runs scored as a rookie. His 10 home runs tied with se­nior catcher Travis Watkins for the team lead and ranked eighth in the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence.

The Ze­bu­lon na­tive and first base­man started 51-of-57 games, reg­is­ter­ing 16 multi-hit and seven multi-RBI out­ings.

Women’s golf

For the first time in pro­gram his­tory, six mem­bers of the East Carolina women’s golf team were named Divi­sion I All-Amer­ica schol­ars, ac­cord­ing to an an­nounce­ment by the Women’s Golf Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion. They were Cather­ine Ash­worth, Car­ley Cox, Dorthea For­brigd, Kate Law, Lisa Pet­ters­son and Si­ra­non Shoomee.

With the in­clu­sions of Ash­worth (two times), Law (twice) and Pet­ters­son (three), it marks the 13th straight year that at least two Pi­rates have been named All-Amer­ica schol­ars in the same year, dat­ing back to 2015.

“This is the most se­lec­tions we have ever had in one year and to think we were three rounds shy from hav­ing all seven team mem­bers named to the All-Amer­ica Scholar Team,” ECU coach Kevin Williams said. “It’s very ex­cit­ing to see their hard work pay off with this an­nounce­ment and even more ex­cit­ing to have ev­ery one of them re­turn­ing for the up­com­ing year.”
