East Carolina junior outfielder Bryant Packard picked up his fifth preseason All-America selection on Tuesday, earning a first-team nod from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Packard posted a .406 batting average as a sophomore and also led the American Athletic Conference in hits, slugging percentage and total bases. He is projected to be the Pirates’ starting left fielder and leadoff hitter in the batting order again this year, but he could also see some action in center.

“There’s no weird angles off the bat, like there is in left field with some sidespin,” Packard said last week. “Center field is fun, it can be just a lot of running.”

Also this week, the NCBWA ranked the Pirates No. 14 in its preseason poll. ECU is ranked as high as No. 11 by D1baseball.com.

Golfers complete tourneys

The ECU men’s golf team opened its spring season with a ninth-place finish out of 14 teams at the Sea Best Invitational hosted by Jacksonville University. The Pirates carded a 28-over-par total and were the lone unranked team to place in the top-10, finishing two strokes ahead of No. 24 UNLV.

“We had a great opportunity to beat some ranked teams, and we did beat UNLV who is ranked 24, but couldn’t pass any others,” ECU coach Andrew Sapp said in a release.

Freshman A.J. Beechler recorded his first career top-10, totaling 11 birdies and carding a 1-under after shooting 70-68-71.

In women’s action, Dorthea Forbrigd (71-67-76) shot a 2-under and led the Pirates to 10th place among 16 at the UCF Challenge. ECU was 3-under overall to finish ahead of three top-50 teams (No. 18 Illinois, No. 36 College of Charleston and No. 49 SMU).

“I saw a lot of really good things in the first tournament of the spring,” coach Kevin Williams said in a release. “We came into the event as the 13th-highest ranked team in the field and finished in the top-10.”
