After tossing 8 solid innings for Seward County against Hutchinson in a win on Saturday, Saints lefty Hayden Howard has been named the KJCCC Co-Pitcher of the Week in a league release Thursday.
Howard was masterful this week for the Saints, spinning 8 innings without allowing an earned run against Jayhawk West frontrunner Hutchinson on Saturday. Howard earned the win, allowing just 5 hits and 1 walk while striking out 4.
It marks the second time this season that Howard has been named the Co-Pitcher of the Week in the Jayhawk Conference, this time sharing the honors with Butler righthander Corbin Orburn.
Howard currently ranks 6th in the Jayhawk West with a 2.41 ERA and his 41 innings pitched on the season trail only teammate JB Olson for the league lead. Howard’s 42 strikeouts on the season lead the Jayhawk Conference and are in the top 25 nationally.
Howard and the Saints will return to the diamond this weekend when they travel to Pratt for a four game series at Stanion Field beginning Saturday at 1:00.
