Baseball: Lake Worth Christian names Kraig Lawrence as new coach 

By Anthony Chiang

After a disappointing season, Lake Worth Christian’s baseball team has a new head coach.

The Defenders named Kraig Lawrence as its new head baseball coach Friday. Lawrence replaces David Salley, who stepped down to start a new career.

Lake Worth Christian finished with a 5-18-1 record and did not get past the district tournament this past season.

Before arriving at Lake Worth Christian, Lawrence was assisting with the Fort Lauderdale-University School’s baseball program. University School did not advance to regionals in 2014.

“We are continually striving to build a great baseball program to go with the great facilities we have here at Lake Worth Christian,” Defenders athletic director Jim Harwood said. “I think coach Lawrence is just the guy to continue the building process.”
