Liberal, Kansas – After climbing the record books this past season for Seward County baseball, Cameron Cartwright has found a new home in Colorado Mesa University to continue both his athletic and academic career at the four-year level in the 2025 season as the Saints’ All-Region selection looks to continue slugging out homers at the next level.

During his sophomore campaign in 2024, Cartwright earned All-KJCCC West First Team and All-Region VI honors with a .352 batting average to go with 68 hits, 57 runs, 42 RBIs, 15 doubles, and 11 homers throughout the season. Cartwright earned KJCCC West Player of the Week honors twice on the season with the first coming on April 16th after leading the Saints to a four-game sweep over Garden City where he averaged .571 at the plate with 8 hits, 10 RBIs, and 2 home run bombs to propel Seward County upward in the standings. His second KJCCC West Player of the Week honors took him one step further as he earned NJCAA Player of the Week the final week of the regular season after going 4-1 on the week with a batting average of .556 with 10 hits, 8 runs, 9 RBIs, and 3 homers.

Throughout his two-year career in Liberal, Kansas, Cartwright has climbed up the SCCC record books and now sits third all-time in home runs with 28. In his career with the Saints, he recorded 133 hits, 116 runs, 25 doubles, a pair of triples, 88 RBIs, and 15 stolen bases while hitting .362 at the plate and recording an on base percentage of .439 for Seward County. Cartwright racked up the awards through his two seasons as he was named KJCCC West Freshman of the Year in 2023 while being a two time All-Region VI First Team member (2023-2024) and KJCCC West First Team member (2023-2024).

“Excited to see Cameron go to the next level” said Head Coach Mike Davidson. “Cam was freshman of the year in the Jayhawk conference and all region selection as a sophomore. Mesa is getting a good player that can play multiple positions and can hit with the best of them. Congratulations Cam.”

Cartwright will be joining a Colorado Mesa baseball program that was dominant in the RMAC throughout the 2024 season as the Mavericks went 38-18 overall with a 24-8 record in conference. The Mavericks placed in the top of the RMAC standings for the regular season title and won the RMAC Tournament with wins over CSU Pueblo, Adams State, and two wins over Regis to grab the championship to advance to the NCAA Division II Regionals.

Cartwright is one of six player to move on to the four-year level from the 2024 Seward County baseball class accompanied by Tyler Wilcox, Brian Luna Alvarez, Elias Herrera, Trenton Rowan, and Trent Gerber.
