Seward sits in second place in Jayhawk West Conference going in to Cloud County home game

With the conference record of 4-1 and overall record of 19-2, the Lady Saints are prepared to take on the Cloud County Thunderbirds Wednesday night in the Green House for yet another Jayhawk West Conference double header for the Saints and Lady Saints.  The women’s game will tip at 6 p.m. with the men’s game following at 8 p.m.

Dodge City

It was homecoming night Friday as the Seward County Lady Saints took on the Dodge City Lady Conquistadors, so the Green House was full of energy.   The Lady Saints took a quick lead right at tip-off and never looked back. They kept scoring and Dodge City could not seem to stop them and had no answer at the other end. Seward County went on a 20-point run at one point in the first half.   It was a great night for Fabiana Monte. She was the top pointer of the night with a total of 20 points for the game.  Not only did Monte have a wonderful night on the court, but she was also announced as Seward County Homecoming Queen.  Seward won in a blowout against Dodge City 87-53, and improved to 4-1 and took sole possession of second place in conference play.


The Lady Saints basketball team travelled to great bend on Wednesday, Jan. 22 and took on Barton Community College. Playing on the road is always a challenge, but that didn’t seem to have the Lady Saints rattled. They showed up at Barton ready to play. Seward took a huge lead early on, leading by as many as 20 points at one time, but the team eventually lost that lead.  Near the end of the second half, the Barton Lady Cougars fought back and the game and was even tied at one point. However in the end, Seward County defeated Barton 78-72 to up its conference record to 3-1.


The Green House was packed as two nationally ranked teams took the court Saturday, Jan. 18. Students and the community came to support and cheer on Seward. Freshman Brianna Scott said that the fans cheering gave them energy throughout the game. “It was good to know that the crowd never stopped believing in the team,” she said, “I would like to give a huge shout out to the baseball team for being such great supporters.” The entire game was neck and neck and had everyone on their toes. The game was never separated by more than 6 points in the see-saw battle. The Hutchison Lady Dragons could not stop Shanice Brooks who had the team high of 17 points for the game. Even though the game went to the wire, the Lady Saints fell short, losing 61-55 to the Lady Dragons.
