North Forsyth alum Bailey Gerstner was named to the Preseason All-Gulf South Conference team, the league office announced Wednesday.
Gerstner, a senior at Shorter University, hit .374 last year, leading the team in hits (55) and runs scored (34). Gerstner also struck out just 13 times in 147 at-bats and made just one error in 49 chances on defense.
Gerstner's junior season earned him a spot on the Gulf South Conference's second team.
The Division II Hawks finished the 2019 season 22-21.
Gerstner hit .366 in 2016 as a senior at North, scoring 24 runs and driving in 11 while helping the Raiders to a second-round playoff appearance.
Shorter will open its season Feb. 1 at Miles College (Ala.).
