Thats right, we are inviting all Seward County Saints Baseball alumns and their families back to Liberal on Labor Day Weekend (September 3-5) to relive the glory days at Brent Gould Field. The weekend will consist of a new facilities tour, a home run derby, a game against the current Saints, a dinner and social after the game, as well as a golf tournament on Sunday morning.

As the 2009-2010 NJCAA Academic All-American Awards come out, the Seward County Saints and Lady Saints find their names spread all throughout as 10 SCCC/ATS student-athletes have been given the prestigious honor from the NJCAA as awards were released this week.
Highlighting the list of 10 are Men’s Tennis player Carlos Souza, Women’s Tennis player Shaley Thomas, and Women’s Basketball player Liz Ginther who all received Distinguished Academic All-American honors by achieving overall GPA’s of 3.80 or above. The 7 student-athletes named Academic All-American for maintaining GPA’s between 3.60-3.80 were Baseball players Luke Campbell, Josh Dawson, Hayden Holub, and Jared Wagner, Softball player Amy Schartz, Men’s Tennis player Fernando Soni, and Volleyball player Taryn Westerman.
Seven of the student-athletes named to the list were Jayhawk West Champions at Seward County this season while four participated in their respective NJCAA National Tournament in 2010.
CLICK HERE FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL 2009-2010 NJCAA ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICANS
After 6 of 7 Seward County teams either won the Jayhawk West Conference or advanced to the NJCAA National Tournament this season, it was quite evident Tuesday that practicing their skills on the field and the court weren’t the only things that the Saints and Lady Saints were going during the 2009-2010 school year. It was announced Tuesday that a matching 6 of 7 teams had been named to the NJCAA’s Academic Teams of the Year list to recognize teams composite achievements in the classroom.
At the top of their respective list for the second straight season was Head Coach Darin Workman’s Men’s Tennis team who amassed a 3.74 team GPA this year to take home their second straight NJCAA Academic Team of the Year Championship. The Saints win the award as the nation’s top academic team again this year by blowing away the competition with the next closest competitor being at 3.39.
Workman’s Women’s Tennis team was equally impressive, finishing in 3rd place in the country, just .02 off the national lead with a 3.67 team GPA. The Lady Saints trailed just East Central CC (Miss.) and Scottsdale CC (Ariz.) and put together the highest GPA of any team in the region this year.
The Lady Saints Volleyball team headed by coach Bert Luallen find their way into the sweet 16 academically this season as they pooled their grades for a 3.35 mark this year. The Lady Saints GPA was the highest of any Division 1 team in the region for the 2009-10 school year.
Head Coach Galen McSpadden’s Saints Baseball team checked in at #18 on the list in their sport, posting a 3.04 team GPA. The Saints not only took home the Jayhawk West Championship on the diamond this season but took home the imaginary trophy from the classroom as well as they finished higher than any other Jayhawk West team when it came to academics as well.
Finishing 26th in the country was Toby Wynn’s Lady Saints Women’s Basketball team who backed up a 31-3 season with ironically a 3.13 team GPA. The Lady Saints were the #3 team from the Jayhawk West and joined 6 other teams total from the Sunflower State in the rankings.
Last but certainly not least was coach Andrea Gustafson’s Lady Saints Softball team who found their way onto the list at #39 after a 9th place finish at the NJCAA National Tournament. The Lady Saints put together a 3.17 overall GPA on the year and were behind only Colby CC when it came to the Jayhawk West academic standings.
For the fourth straight year, Bert Luallen’s Seward County Lady Saints Volleyball team has been awarded the AVCA Team Academic Award. This season the Lady Saint join a record crowd of over 450 different men’s and women’s high school, junior college, NCAA, and NAIA volleyball teams to be given the award. However, the Lady Saints are one of just eight teams at the two-year college level to be given the award.
The award, which was initiated in the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the school year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative team grade-point average on a 4.0 scale or a 4.10 cumulative team GPA on a 5.0 scale.
The Lady Saint stand in elite company with the award this season with only seven other schools in their class. Allen County and Dodge City were the only other two Jayhawk schools to earn the award with the other five schools being Dawson CC (Mont.), Linn-Benton CC (Oreg.), North Platte CC (Nebr.), Northeastern JC (Colo.), and Redlands CC (Okla.).
"There is no better way to gauge the success of a sport than to track the accomplishments of the people who participate," said AVCA Executive Director Kathy DeBoer. "Each of these 450 teams represents 12-15 really smart kids. What a great day for the sport of volleyball" she continued.
The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has announced that the Seward County Lady Saints are on its list of winners for the 2009-10 Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll. This award, given in NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA and Junior College/Community College, awards teams throughout the nation that carry the highest grade point averages (GPA) for the entire season based on the nomination submitted by WBCA-member head coaches.
The Lady Saints check in at #12 on the JC/CC list this season after compiling a team GPA of 3.10 over the course of the 2009-2010 school year. Toby Wynn’s Seward squad was the highest ranked team from the Jayhawk Conference on the list, finding themselves just ahead of Johnson County and Ft. Scott.
“Congratulations to these teams who have excelled academically during the 2009-10 school year," WBCA CEO Beth Bass said. “Each of these coaches set an extraordinary example for their peers to follow by holding academics in such high esteem with their student-athletes" she continued.
The Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Board of Trustees met on Monday, July 19 for the annual organizational meeting and to authorize publication of the FY2011 budget.
The Board authorized publication of the FY2011 budget of $15,313,316. The budget includes a recommended increase in local tax mil levy of 0.527. This will be a similar mill levy increase from 2009 but is only the second time since 2004 that the mill levy has increased. Due to reduced county assessed valuation the college will realize a decrease in county tax levied by approximately $1,040,000 and a reduction in state aid of approximately $50,000. Dr. Duane Dunn, SCCC/ATS president expressed appreciation to the employees of the college for their commitment to hold budget expenditures and budget proposals to an efficient standard, and the trustees expressed appreciation to Tommy Williams, dean of administrative services, for compiling a budget that reflects consideration of an effective utilization of college resources. The public hearing on the budget will be held on Monday, August 2.
New employees Kylee Harrison, admissions coordinator, and Jay Cyriac, assistant men’s basketball coach were introduced and shared their activities regarding recruiting and preparation for fall semester. The Board approved the personnel report indicating the employment of Veda King as director of nursing/division chair of allied health, and accepted the resignation of Alana Rowland, assistant volleyball coach.
The Board elected Dr. Steve Cauble as chair of the Board for FY2011 and Ron Oliver as vice chair. Board clerk is Dr. Duane Dunn and college treasurer and vice treasurer are Tina Call and Mike Brond, respectively. The Board entered into an agreement with Kerry McQueen to serve as Board counsel and designated the High Plains Daily Leader as the legal publication for the college.
The administrative succession plan was reviewed and approved with modifications to the administrator position descriptions. The succession plan was adopted in the spring semester of 2010 and is reviewed annually in order to address any changes in the college operations and to assure administrative oversight of the college.
Rhonda Kinser, director of the Student Support Services grant, provided a review of the accomplishments of the grant and of activities that have been held for students who are participants in the grant initiative. She indicated that the participating students have met grant objectives in retention and transfer rates. The grant initiatives include tutoring, career advising, cultural awareness activities, and university transfer campus visits. Funds for the program are provided through a federal grant and participating students must meet certain qualifications including being a first generation college student, being a federal Pell grant recipient or another qualifying criteria established by the federal program. SCCC/ATS is completing the fifth year of grant activities and have provided services to over 500 students during that time.
The Board adopted the institutional goals, which address the strategic planning objectives including Employee Development, Creating Awareness of the College; Addressing Diversity; Addressing Student Learning; Addressing Technology; and Addressing Workforce Development. The administrative team will provide quarterly reports to the Board regarding achievement of objectives addressing the institutional goals.
Tommy Williams, dean of administrative services, was designated as compliance officer in the Board’s adoption of the college non-discrimination policy. The policy verifies that the college will not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability.
Celeste Donovan, dean of student services, presented a first draft of a tuberculosis prevention plan, which is required by recent legislative action and coordinated through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Donovan described the working relationship between the college and the Seward County Health Department in developing the plan and providing screening and assistance to those students who are considered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment as potential high risk for tuberculosis. This plan is a new requirement for the college and addresses consideration of global concerns with student health.
The Board designated the architectural firms of Bartlett & West and Architecture One of Topeka to develop a master land use and facility plan. The development of the master plan has been a component of the college’s strategic plan and, with the merger of the area technical school in 2009, it has become a priority to address the capacity and technological needs of the college. The process of identifying the architects included a request for proposals, a review of submitted proposals, and interviews of the firms who met the proposal criteria. The Bartlett & West and Architecture One firms submitted a joint proposal and will begin focus group discussions with employees, students, trustees, the SCCC/ATS Foundation, Booster Club, and the public in the process of developing a long-term plan for the college.
The Board approved the construction of a storage building for the Shank Humanities building in the amount of $42,600 through Mid-Plains Construction of Plains, Kansas. The storage building will provide necessary space for the theater and other fine arts departments.
Associate Dean of Educational Services Dale Reed discussed the activities available through Kids College, which will be held during the month of July. The first session began July 19 and the second session will begin July 26. Activities and classes range from chef school and cheerleading to robotics and photography.

The Diesel Technology program at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School has received certification by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
To achieve this coveted recognition, the college training program underwent rigorous evaluation by the NATEF. Nationally accepted standards of excellence in areas such as instruction, facilities, and equipment were used.
“This is great news for automotive-minded young people and their parents,” said Donald Seyfer, NATEF Chair. “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that SCCC/ATS’ graduates will be employable entry-level technicians. As a result of the quality education provided by SCCC/ATS, the motoring public will benefit since better repair technicians will join the work force.” Upon completion of the evaluation, NATEF recommended that SCCC/ATS be certified by The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). ASE is a national non-profit organization which tests and certifies repair technicians, in addition to certifying automotive training programs.
“During the past few months, we have worked closely with NATEF to make certain that out program would meet strict industry standards, and now we are delighted to join the ranks of the ASE certified training programs, said Gerald Kail, instructor. “Students will be assured of a quality education, and shop owners will be assured of getting quality job applicants.”

After two successful seasons for Seward County, sophomore sluggers Luke Campbell and Quay Grant have signed their National Letters of Intent to play for Coach Ray Birmingham and NCAA Regional participant, the University of New Mexico for the 2010-2011 season.
Grant played primarily 3rd base for the Saints this season while also serving as Seward’s stopper at the end of ballgames. He finished the season hitting .365 with 13 doubles, 7 home runs, and 51 RBI’s as well as a 3.67 ERA on the hill for the Saints. However, it was Grant’s .446 batting average and 31 RBI’s in 32 games during Jayhawk West Conference play that earned the sophomore 1st Team All-Conference and 1st Team All-Region accolades when the postseason awards were announced. Grant says that he has been told that he will also be given the chance to work as a two way player while at UNM.
Campbell will join the hitter friendly confines of Isotopes Park at UNM after having yet another stellar season in the middle of the Seward order for Coach Galen McSpadden. Campbell led the Saints in hitting in 2010, posting a .378 average with 16 doubles, 9 home runs, and a team high 65 RBI’s. It was the second straight season that Campbell put up big power numbers for Seward as the Arvada, Colorado native hit .362 with 11 home runs and 57 RBI’s as a freshman in 2009. The two year totals for Campbell stack up favorably against some of the best players in school history as his 20 home runs ranks 8th all-time while his 122 RBI’s but him 4th on the school’s all-time list. Campbell’s play on the diamond this season earned him 1st Team All-Conference and 2nd Team All-Region honors.
The pair will join a Lobos team that made it to NCAA Regionals this season and took a run at Super Regionals after pulling off one of the biggest upsets in regional play by knocking off one of the top pitchers in the Pac-10 in Jordan Pries and the Stanford Cardinal in their first game of the tournament. UNM then held a late lead in their winners bracket game against Minnesota but lost the lead late and fell in extra innings before having their season finished by host Cal State Fullerton a day later to make them 38-22 to finish the 2010 season.
