Seward County Lady Saints Basketball player Rachel Barnes has been named the NJCAA National Player of the Week for her performances in two Seward wins last week. The sophomore from Windsor, Connecticut averaged 21.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in Seward County wins over 7-2 Clarendon and 8-0 Frank Phillips. In Friday’s win over Clarendon, Barnes scored a career high 30 points and had 7 rebounds in just 23 minutes of play followed by a 23 point, 12 rebound, 6 assist effort against then undefeated Frank Phillips. Barnes will lead the Lady Saints into battle Wednesday against arch rival Hutchinson at 6:00 in the Greenhouse in Seward’s Jayhawk West Conference opener.
