Hunter Donaldson was a great utility player in high school.
That hasn’t changed in college.
The 2012 North Henderson graduate leads all Brevard College baseball players with 18 hits and is batting .450 with eight RBIs, three doubles and an on-base percentage of .520.
The junior has started in all games for the Tornados (7-4) and mostly plays first base. But Donaldson has also pitched three scoreless innings with a strikeout.
Brevard’s next game is scheduled for Monday at Catawba.
As a high school senior, Donaldson was named the 2012 Co-Western North Carolina Athletic Conference Player of the Year after batting a team-high .444 with 41 RBIs, 12 doubles and eight home runs. As a pitcher, he was 8-3 with a 1.47 ERA and 69 strikeouts. He led the Knights (14-12-1) to the third round of the NCHSAA 2-A playoffs for the first time in school history.
