More Changes in UTB-TSC Athletics ...

Bryan Aughney, the UTB-TSC assistant baseball coach, has been named Interim Head Baseball Coach.

Joel Barta, the Scorpions' head baseball coach for two years, resigned Friday to accept the position of Head Baseball Coach at Ridgewater College in Willmar, Minnesota.

Aughney began working at UTB-TSC in September 2007. In the 2008 season, the Scorpions went 24-32 and finished third in the Red River Athletic Conference Tournament.

"I am pleased to be given the opportunity to continue what Coach Barta has started, because he has laid a great foundation for Scorpion Baseball," Aughney said. "His values and traditions will continue to be a model for our program. We have a great group of young men coming back and I know they are all excited to get back on the field."

Aughney's announcement was made by Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Hilda Silva. A search for Barta's successor is under way.

A search for UTB-TSC Athletic Director is also under way. Dan Balaguero, UTB-TSC's men's soccer coach, was recently named interim athletic director upon Dan Huntley's departure.
