DURHAM, North Carolina — North Carolina Central University (NCCU) baseball senior Etienne Farquharson, from Inagua in The Bahamas, has been selected by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) to receive the Nike Post Graduate Scholarship for his performance in the classroom and on the diamond.
This is the second such academic honor for Farquharson, who was also named to the Capital One Academic All-District III team by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) with a 3.961 Grade Point Average (GPA) majoring in business.
“Etienne is an extremely bright and talented young man that deserves all the accolades he is receiving,” said NCCU head baseball coach Jim Koerner. “I am very proud of his academic accomplishments.”
Farquharson ended up hitting .239 with 11 RBIs in his final season at NCCU, which included a 3-for-6 effort at the plate with a run scored, a stolen base, and an RBI in the Eagles series sweep over Florida A&M to end the conference slate. NCCU finished the 2012 regular season with a 19-32 overall win/loss record with a 13-10 mark in conference play.
The Nike Post Graduate Scholarship for $5,000 is awarded by the conference to both a male and female student-athlete who has excelled academically and athletically and are in their final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility and competition under MEAC and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) regulations for the sport in which the student-athlete is nominated.
