Greensboro, N.C. -- University of Lynchburg graduate student Kinston Carson (Tappahannock, Va.) claimed a spot on the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings All-South Region third team as a pitcher, the ABCA announced Tuesday.

Carson, a graduate transfer from William & Mary who played as a junior on the field for the Hornets this season posted team-bests in ERA (3.13) and strikeouts (59) in 43 ⅓ innings on the mound, emerging as the team's game-one starter late in the season.

He sported a 2-0 record and led the Old Dominion Athletic Conference with a 12.32 strikeouts-per-nine-innings rate.

The team's regular in right field when he wasn't pitching, Carson hit .279 with a home run and 24 RBI. His 25 walks led the team, and his 16 stolen bases ranked second on the club, helping Lynchburg tie the program's single-season record in swiped bags in 2019.
