As the Lady Saints keep their momentum rolling after defeating Butler Community College, they managed to bounce back with higher energy to knock out another conference opponent. The Lady Saints went up against Cloud County Community College on Saturday, Nov. 18.

Due to their great ball movement and communication, Seward shot 44.8 percent from the floor in the first half. The Lady Saints had a tough defense, which lead the Thunderbirds having just 24.2 percent from the field.

As for the second half, the Lady Saints came out with the same mindset they had in the beginning and didn’t hesitate to increase their lead. Unfortunately for the Thunderbirds, Seward’s incredible defense put a stop to their offense and couldn’t keep up. The final score of the game was 78-55, making the Lady Saints’ third conference win and 5-0 overall.

The player of the night was sophomore Brennyn Seagler, scoring 18 points, seven rebounds and three assists.
