COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina swimming & diving assistant coach Duncan Sherrard has been named the Sunshine State Conference’s Swim Coach of the Decade. Sherrard coached the Florida Southern College Mocs from 2009-2015, where he became the most decorated FSC swim coach to date.
“I’m honored and humbled to have received this award,” said Sherrard. “It could not have been done without the help of Athletics Director Pete Meyer, my assistant coaches, and the student-athletes. Those years at Florida Southern College were the fourndation of my coaching career and helped me develop a lot of my philosophies.”
While at Florida Southern, Sherrard was four-time conference coach of the year. His student-athletes achieved 203 All-America performances, and he had a top-15 NCAA finish in each year of his tenure.
Sherrard coached his team to back-to-back NCAA Division II runner-up finishes in 2013 and 2014. He also achieved three consecutive conference team championships and had 29 All-SSC student-athletes.
Seven of Sherrard’s former student-athletes were also named to the conference’s All-Decade teams.
Sherrard joined the staff at South Carolina in May 2021 after making stops at North Carolina and Auburn.
