On National Signing Day around the country, two Seward County Lady Saint sophomore volleyball players have made their decisions to move on to 4 year universities. Taryn Westerman who played in 271 games and 86 matches in her two year career at Seward County has signed at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas to play for the Mustangs and coach Venera Flores-Stafford next season. Westerman finishes her career in the top 10 in All-Time Season Assists at Seward County as her 936 rank her 9th in school history. A well rounded threat for coach Luallen and the Lady Saints, Westerman finished in the top 5 on the team in kills, assists, aces, digs, and blocks this season as a sophomore. Amanda Savage has decided to return home to Wichita where she will play with the Newman University Jets during her junior and senior seasons. Savage started 36 of Seward’s 37 matches this season and recorded 480 digs, good for 5th most in a single season in school history. Combined with a freshman season in which she pulled up 448 balls off the hardwood, Savage ranks 4th in school history in career digs with 928. The two helped lead Seward to a 62-27 overall record in two seasons and helped the Lady Saints win their first Jayhawk West Conference championship in six seasons during the 2009 season.
