IRVING, Texas – College of Charleston senior right-handed pitcher Matt Pegler has been tabbed a Preseason All-America Third Team selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).
A native of Greenville, S.C., Pegler became just the fifth player in CofC history to record a 10-win season as he went 10-2 with a 2.83 ERA last season. He ranked second in the Southern Conference in ERA and third in wins as he was named to the All-SoCon Second Team.
Pegler led the conference in opposing batting average with a mark of .221, as he recorded 66 strikeouts and only 20 walks in 15 starts.
He earned Gainesville All-Regional team honors after throwing a complete game in CofC’s 8-2 win over Bethune-Cookman in the NCAA Tournament. Pegler recorded a career-high nine strikeouts and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning.
Fellow SoCon players Alex Swim (C, Elon) and Will Callaway (SS, Appalachian State) were also named to the NCBWA’s All-America Third Team.
