State champion coach Tom LoSauro will take over as Bishop McLaughlin’s head baseball coach and athletic director, principal Sarah Regan announced Wednesday.

LoSauro took Fort Myers Bishop Verot Catholic High School to a Class 3A state championship, a 28-4 record and a top-15 national ranking according to Baseball America. His team had two players selected in the top 70 picks of the June draft and was named 3A Coach of the Year by the Florida High School Athletic Association.

"This past season was a Cinderella season for us," LoSauro said.

LoSauro, 50, was Bishop Verot's head coach for 13 years and was an assistant athletic director last year. He said he wanted to come to the Hurricanes to continue coaching while taking on more of an administrative role.

"Even though it's a very young school, it's had quite a bit of success in the baseball program," LoSauro said. "I thought I could have the opportunity to help them build on that success not only as baseball coach but build on the entire success of the athletic department."

LoSauro said he'll join the school in early August. Later this summer, he'll help coach the under-14 U.S. national team in the Pan-American Games in Venezuela.

“We are extremely lucky to have a coach of his caliber, and more importantly a coach and an athletic director who will continue to instill in our young athletes a sense of values, school spirit and sportsmanship,” Regan said in an e-mail.
