BASEBALL: Salt Lake Community College head baseball coach Bill Groves — the Bruins' only head coach since the baseball program's inception in 1996 — has resigned to pursue other professional opportunities, announced athletic director Norma Carr.

Assistant D.G. Nelson has been named interim head coach.

"Bill was very instrumental in bringing baseball to Salt Lake Community College," said Carr. "We appreciate all he did to establish the program and get it to the level that it is. We wish him well in his future pursuits."

Groves played a significant leadership role in establishing temporary practice facilities and eventually baseball's permanent home at Cate Field.

The Bruins have averaged 36 wins the past four seasons, appeared in the 2002 NJCAA western regional, won the SWAC in 2002 and finished runner-up in the league in 1999 and 2000. Finishing with a 208-168 overall record, Groves received the Western Regional Coach of the Year award in 2002, while his 2003 team was ranked No. 19 in the preseason poll.
