Jackson Dietel wins KJCCC Division I Player of the Week after helping T-Birds to series win over Barton

Cloud County sophomore Jackson Dietel has been named the KJCCC Division I Player of the Week for Week 10 after having a major impact in the T-Birds' 3-1 series win over Barton Community College last weekend.

The right-handed slugger batted .313 for the week (5-for-16) with 10 RBI and three extra-base hits, highlighted by an explosive Game Four against Barton that saw Dietel finish 4-for-6 with two home runs and six driven in. 

Dietel, who was the Game Four starting pitcher, tied the score at 9-9 with a leadoff home run in the top of the ninth inning that forced extra innings. He then scored the eventual game-winning run in the 11th inning after leading off with a single.

In addition to his impact at the plate, Dietel pitched six strong innings in the Game Four win, allowing just two runs in the no-decision. He also picked up his first career save with a scoreless ninth inning in Cloud County's Game Two victory.

Dietel is currently hitting .310 on the season with seven home runs and 27 RBI.
