CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Hanahan has named a former Hawk as their new head baseball coach.
The school announced on Wednesday that Skylar Hunter will take over the program after serving as an assistant the last few seasons.
Hunter, who graduated from Hanahan in 2012, replaces Brian Mitchell who stepped down after the season after leading the team to the 3-A state championship series.
