King Earns Capital One Academic All District Honors
05/02/2014

Seward County sophomore Austin King became one of just two players in school history to accomplish a feat on Thursday, as he was named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-District 1st Team as announced by CoSIDA.

King has been electric at the top of the Saints rotation this season, positing a 7-3 record with a 3.55 ERA in 12 appearances and 10 starts.  While those numbers don't overly jump off the page at you, the next numbers will.  On the year in 66 innings pitched, King has struck out 70 opposing hitters while walking just 2, the second coming after his 67th strikeout of the season Sunday against Butler.

As well as excelling on the mound, King's Capital One Academic All-District selection was as much about his work in the classroom.  He entered his last semester at Seward County with a 3.56 GPA and is a Business major.

King as well as the rest of the Saints team are actively involved in Big Brothers/Big Sisters in the Liberal area, partaking in activities with youngsters such as swimming, fishing, and hunting.

King is one of only two junior college players in the country to be named to the Academic All-District 1st Team this year as he is joined by Hinds catcher Caleb Upton on the list.

With his 1st Team All-District selection, King will now be moved forward to the Capital One Academic All-American round where voting starts on Tuesday.
