Maryland junior right-hander Mike Shawaryn was selected in the fifth round with the 148th overall pick by the Boston Red Sox in the Major League Baseball draft Friday.
Shawaryn holds school records for career wins (30), career strikeouts (307), career innings pitched (307 1/3), single-season wins (13) and single-season strikeouts (138). He was named a first-team All-American in 2015 and a freshman All-American in 2014.
"We're extremely happy for Mike," Terps coach John Szefc said in a statement. "Mike is a first-class guy on and off the field, and he was worked incredibly hard over the last three years to put himself in this position. We are excited to see what he does in the future."
Shawaryn finished his junior season with six wins and a 3.18 ERA. He pitched 99 innings, the sixth most in the Big Ten Conference, while allowing a .195 batting average against, the third-best mark in the conference. Shawaryn's 97 strikeouts ranked fourth in the Big Ten.
Towson athletic director Tim Leonard confirmed that Princeton requested permission to interview men's lacrosse coach Shawn Nadelen for the same position after the season ended. Princeton fired Chris Bates on April 6 for his role in elbowing a Brown player during a game four days earlier. Bates was 53-42 in seven seasons at the school. Nadelen, 37, has ties to Princeton, having served as an assistant there under former coach Bill Tierney from 2002 to 2004. He signed an extension Aug. 20 to remain at Towson through the 2019 season, and another year was added after the team swept the 2016 Colonial Athletic Association regular-season and tournament championships. Leonard said he is working with Nadelen to give assistant coaches raises, as well as other requests. "I have every reason to believe he will be the coach at Towson," Leonard said.
Nadelen had said as recently as last month that he had no interest in leaving the Tigers, pointing out that his wife Mary is a professor in the university's kinesiology department and he, his wife and two children have settled in the Baltimore area.

The camp included 16 players who have most recently played in the NBA Development League and are current NBA free agents.
Warren spent three days with the Pistons, participating in four practice sessions and spending time with coaches and management to gain insight into their player evaluation process. "I was able to call plays, demonstrate drills and manage game situations, which included calling timeouts and drawing up X's and O's," Warren said in a release. "It was a tremendous learning experience to coach in these various situations and I also have a better appreciation for all the work and preparation that a front office goes through when making player personnel decisions."
