Seward County sophomore center fielder Keegan Morrow and infielder Kade Kauk have signed their National Letters of Intent to continue their playing careers at four year schools this week. Morrow, a speedster from Oklahoma City has signed to with the 2008 Division 2 National Champions Mount Olive College in Mount Olive, North Carolina. Morrow will look to get the Trojans back to national prominence in 2010 after they took the National Championship with a 58-6 record in 08í before going 33-18 last season. Keegan hit .352 for the Saints in 2009 following up an All-Conference Freshman campaign in 2008. The southpaw was 4th on the Saints in batting average, doubles, and triples this season while pacing the running game with 13 steals. Fellow Oklahoman Kade Kauk has also made his college choice as he will stay closer to home and attend the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond. He will join a Bronchos squad that went .500 in Lone Star Conference play this season and narrowly missed the conference tournament in Abeline. Kauk batted .244 for the Saints in 2009 after hitting at a .288 clip as a freshman in 2008. He finished his Seward County career with 6 doubles, 2 home runs, and 15 RBIís. The duo now brings the Saints to 9 players that have signed to continue their playing careers next season.
