Less than one week away from their October, 31 season opener, the Seward County Lady Saints have been picked #17 in the NJCAA pre-season poll.

With the pre-season honor, the Lady Saints have now been ranked in the NJCAA top 20 for 19 straight seasons.

Head Coach Toby Wynn and the Lady Saints will battle Friends University Friday at 6:00 in the Greenhouse to open the 2008-09 campaign.
