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.

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

The Pirates are not going to overpower many teams in the post — they’re tallest player is 6-foot-9 freshman Rico Quinton — and they are young, but…

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…

These three questions appeared in the Pirate Gameday section previewing the East Carolina-Houston football game, which ended as a 42-20 win for Houston that could have been more lopsided if not for a few late touchdowns by the Pirates.

Speaking of those touchdowns ...

A week-long theme of a possible new-look East Carolina football offense did not come to fruition Saturday night against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

On a night when ECU had its first announced crowd of less than 30,000 since the finale of the 2005 season, the Pirates used all three of their…

East Carolina’s football offense started too slow and delivered too little again on Saturday night in a 42-20 beating at the hands of visiting Houston.

From third-down miscues to an inability to reach the red zone to a touchdown drought that stretched seven full quarters, ECU (2-4, 0-3…

On Saturday night, East Carolina passed the halfway point in the college football season amid the same uncertainty that has loomed around Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium the last few years.

The Pirates, in a make-or-break season for third-year head coach Scottie Montgomery, lost 42-20 to Houston for a 2-4…

Q: You lead the Pirates with 7.5 sacks this season. Does one stand out the most?

A: Not really, but there are a lot of team memories. That win against Old Dominion (on Sept. 29 in which ECU totaled nine sacks), just that whole game was a lot of fun.

Q: What is your favorite holiday?

A: Halloween,…
