Vandy’s Carter, Nolensville heads to LLWS – Vanderbilt University Athletics – Official Athletics Site

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt Athletics and the National Commodore Club have a special bond with the Nolensville Little League baseball team, a team heading to the Little League World Series for the second straight season.

Nolensville, led by head coach Randy Huth, includes assistant coach Mark Carter, senior associate athletic director for Vanderbilt and executive director of the National Commodore Club. Carter’s son, Nash, is an infielder and pitcher for the team.

Carter said he knows the entire Vanderbilt community is behind the team.

“It makes me so grateful. Certainly the Vanderbilt family is just that, it’s a family,” Carter said. “Just to have that much support, it’s been really cool. You feel it when you receive a million messages congratulating the boys. It’s been awesome.

Nolensville qualified for the College World Series by winning the Southeast Regional tournament in Warner Robins, Georgia by going 3-0 and beating Virginia in the title game. Nolensville will now face Middleboro (Massachusetts) at 2 p.m. CT Wednesday in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. This match will be televised by ESPN.

In 2021, the Nolensville team, which included Vanderbilt pitching coach Scott Brown (as an assistant coach) and his son Nolan, went 0-2 in the Little League World Series.
