SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Joey Raczkowski, a sophomore at Belmont Abbey, earned a spot on the NCAA Division II All-Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference second-team baseball squad announced Friday.

Raczkowski, a left-handed pitcher who starred at Eastern Wayne, threw four complete games and posted a 4-4 record for the Crusaders. He recorded 48 strikeouts in 62 innings pitched and fashioned a 4.65 earned run average.

In a return trip to Wayne County on March 20, Raczkowski threw 5 2/3 innings against Mount Olive College. He fanned five batters and walked three, but earned a no decision as the Crusader bullpen faltered in a 4-3 loss at Scarborough Field.

Raczkowski had six putouts and 13 assists on defense.

Belmont Abbey finished 11-43 overall and failed to qualify for the eight-team CVAC tournament.
