Brian Larsen has been hired as the baseball coach at Ben Lippen High School.
Larsen replaces Jonathan Johnson, who resigned after two years to dedicate more time to his ministry, Honoring the Father.
Larsen coached at Northside Christian in Charlotte, N.C., for the past six years and led them to a 21-6 record and the North Carolina Independent Schools Association state title in 2016. This season, Northside made it to the championship series before losing to Faith Christian.
Prior to that, he coached six years at Dr. Michael Krop High School in Florida and led the Lightning to first district title in more than a decade.
