DURHAM, N.C. – Two North Carolina Central University baseball student-athletes have been recognized for their strong defensive work as Nick Fajardo (Durham, N.C.) was named a top-10 defensive outfielder in HBCU baseball and Carter Williams (Brown Summit, N.C.) was an honorable mention by Black College Nines.

During his NCCU career, Fajardo has made 128 putouts with eight assists and just one error for a career fielding percentage of .993 over 55 appearances and 53 starts.  This season, record 22 putouts and two assists without an error to finish with a 1.000 fielding percentage.  Fajardo has been effective offensively as well, as he drew an NCCU freshman record 44 walks in 2019, which is also the second-most in a single season at NCCU.  That season, he recorded a .437 on-base percentage, which is the second-highest for a freshman at NCCU, and was fifth in the MEAC that year.

Williams has been historic at the plate over his career as an Eagle as the program’s all-time hit leader with 208 hits.  He’s set a strong example in the outfield as well, as he’s made 442 putouts with 24 assists for a .969 fielding percentage over 157 appearances and 154 starts.  In his freshman year, he made 216 putouts with 15 assists as he split time between the outfield and first base in a season that he was named a Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American after hitting .351 at the plate with a .459 slugging percentage.
