The 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior right-handed pitcher led the Timberwolves to a 22-3 record, the Class 5A state championship and the No. 43 national ranking by Perfect Game USA this past season. The 2021 Class 5A Pitcher of the Year, Kudrna compiled a 9-1 record on the mound with a 0.99 ERA and 100 strikeouts against just 11 walks in 57.1 innings. He also fired three shutouts, posted a WHIP of 0.67 and limited opponents to a .130 batting average. He did not allow an earned run in 12 postseason innings-pitched, striking out 18 in that span.
Kudrna has maintained a 3.50 weighted GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at Louisiana State University this fall, but is projected as an early round selection in July’s Major League Baseball draft.
A member of his BVSW’s WolfPack Crew, which plans and executes school assemblies, Kudrna has volunteered locally at a food pantry. He has also served as a supervisor for area baseball fields, where he’s been a role model and mentor to youth players.
