Kolton Ingram Is The All-Time Strikeout King At Columbus State
By Scott Miller
Last weekend Columbus State pitcher, Kolton Ingram broke the all-time strikeout record at CSU. The record breaker came in the fourth inning of the Peach Belt Conference Tournament game against USC Aiken, as Ingram racked up his fourth strikeout of the game. That gave him his 309th strikeout of his Cougar career, passing Brian Baker for the all-time career strikeout record in Columbus State program history. Kolton started the night behind Baker and Jason Burdette on the all time strikeout list. He would go on to strike out 10 on the night, finishing his CSU career with 315 strikeouts. Baker has 308, and Burdette has 307.
Brian Baker and Jason Burdette, (pictured above with Kolton) are both CSU Hall Of Famers. I have no doubt that in a few years Kolton will join them in that elite club.
It's been an honor to broadcast the important moments in the CSU careers of Brian, Jason and Kolton. Right below this, you can listen to Kolton's record breaking moment. Go Cougars!
The record breaker is headed to the trophy case.
