Liberal, Kansas – After a dominant week that saw Cameron Cartwright earn the final KJCCC West Player of the Week honors, he added on a national player of the week honor as well as he was named the NJCAA National Player of the Week.

Cartwright was a big-time player for the Saints over the past week, helping Seward County to a 4-1 week with a win over Colby to finish that series while going 3-1 over Pratt to take the final series of the regular season. He recorded 10 hits in 18 at bats for an average of 55.6 when at the plate while also recording 8 runs, 9 RBIs, 3 2Bs, and 3 Home run bombs that led the Saints to a big week before heading into postseason action.
