Cloud County's Austen Seidel Named KJCCC Division I Pitcher of the Week

Cloud County sophomore Austen Seidel was named the KJCCC Division I Pitcher of the Week for Week 5 on Tuesday following a one-hit, complete-game shutout against Pratt Community College last Friday.

Seidel, an early signee to Wichita State University, highlighted a strong weekend for the Cloud County pitching staff in its 3-1 series victory over the Beavers.

The right-hander carried a perfect game into the sixth inning of Game One's 2-0 victory, with a questionable error call in the sixth and a one-out single in the top of the seventh as the only blemishes on his final line that included no walks and nine strikeouts across seven innings of work.

Through three appearances so far this season, Seidel owns a 1-1 record with a 3.31 earned run average and 27 strikeouts in 16.1 innings.
