East Carolina junior slugger outfielder Dwanya Williams-Sutton was selected in the fifth round by the San Diego Padres on Tuesday afternoon during the second day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

Williams-Sutton, who earned American Athletic All-Conference honors after batting .331 with seven home runs, was taken with the 141st overall pick in the fifth round and is the first Pirate selected in this year’s amateur draft. He is eighth player in school history to be taken by the Padres and the first since Billy Richardson (14th round) and Brian Cavanaugh (21st round) in 2005.

He ranked second on the team and 10th in The American in average after starting 41 of his team’s 47 games, driving in 21 runs and scoring 39 runs. Williams-Sutton homered twice again Campbell and Tulane, and he also led the Pirates and stood fifth in the AAC with 18 stolen bases.

He was listed as the 82nd-best prospect in the country heading into senior season by Baseball America and was a two-time All-AAC selection.

For his ECU career, Williams-Sutton batted .331 with 19 home runs, 91 runs, 63 RBIs (seven game-winners), 22 doubles, 5 triples and 27 stolen bases.
