David Stuart of the 18th ranked Barton Community College baseball team has been named the Week 7 KJCCC Pitcher of the Week.
Stuart posted his best performances of the season this past Wednesday at Colby Community College in pitching his first collegiate complete game shutout. The Lawrence, Kansas, native held the Trojans' bats nearly silent in scattering just three hits over the seven innings including only allowing just four base runners in striking out seven. Earning the victory improving to 3-0 on the season, Stuart currently holds an impressive 1.91 ERA over his 33-innings of work thus far in the season.
Most recently, Stuart and the Cougars posted a pair of 12-1 and 16-0 five-inning run rule victories over the junior varsity squad of Southwestern College.
Extending the winning streak to nine-straight games, the Cougars are off to their best start of a season in recent memory improving to 23-2 on the year.
Barton returns to conference play Thursday hosting the first leg of a four-game set with Dodge City Community College in a scheduled 1:00 p.m. first pitch from Lawson-Biggs Field before heading to Dodge City on Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. twinbill.
