NCBWA Freshman All-America Honors

Carter Holton receives second Freshman All-America nod

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt baseball left-handed pitcher Carter Holton received Freshman All-America honors from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, the publication announced this week.

Holton sported a 3.14 ERA across his rookie season to lead all Commodore starters and place sixth in the SEC. His 97 strikeouts on the year rank sixth in the conference and second on the Vandy pitching staff.

The Savannah, Georgia, native posted an 8-4 record on the mound, while notching a team-high eight quality starts.

The recognition marks the second Freshman All-America honor for Holton, as he was tabbed a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball last week. He was also named to the Freshman All-SEC Team earlier this season.
