For the second time this season, Lady Saints outside hitter Jelena Simic has been named NJCAA Region VI Player of the Week for her dominating performances on the court. Simic led her Lady Saints to two wins last week and helped them secure the 2nd seed in the Region VI Tournament and then had her best match of the season in leading Seward to a win in the first round of the tournament. During the week Simic averaged 6.3 kills/game as well as 2.6 digs/game and recorded an overall .530 hitting percentage. Saturday Simic will lead her Lady Saints into battle in the Region VI Tournament with a bid to the National Championships on the line.
