ROCKY MOUNT — Two pitchers from N.C. Wesleyan College have been named the year’s best by the USA South Athletic Conference.

The N.C. Wesleyan pitching duo of Derrick Carter and Hunter Hill were named Pitcher of the Year and Rookie Pitcher of the Year, respectively. Carter, a senior from Rocky Mount, North Carolina, becomes just the second player in Conference history to be named USA South Pitcher of the Year in consecutive seasons (Greg Van Sickler, Shenandoah, 2010 and 2011). He currently has a 7-2 record in 12 appearances, all of which were starts, and leads the Conference with 78.1 innings pitched, a 2.53 ERA, and 83 strikeouts. In Conference contests-only, Carter posted a 5-2 record and a 2.54 ERA with League-highs of 49.2 innings pitched and 57 strikeouts. This season, he collects First Team All-Conference and First Team East Division honors as a pitcher for the second consecutive season. Finally, Carter was named USA South Pitcher of the Week once this spring.

A freshman pitcher from Asheboro, Hunter Hill is the second consecutive Battling Bishop, and the third in the past four seasons, to earn USA South Baseball Rookie Pitcher of the Year accolades as Danny Thompson won the award last season and senior Drew Tubb won it in 2018. Exclusively coming out of the bullpen, Hill has posted a 2-0 record in nine appearances. In 21.0 innings pitched, Hill has compiled a 2.57 ERA with 18 strikeouts and an opponent batting average of .257. Against USA South foes-only, Hill was 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings pitched with seven strikeouts and an opponent batting average of .237. For his efforts on the mound, Hill was named Second Team All-East Division at relief pitcher and USA South Rookie Pitcher of the Week twice this season.
