Friday afternoon three Seward County Lady Saint sophomores signed their National Letters of Intent to move on and play at 4 year schools. Shelia Washington, Liz Ginther, and Nadia Rosario all inked their names on paperwork Friday as Washington will attend Mississippi Valley State University, Ginther will be headed to Manhattan Christian College, and Rosario is off to Valdosta State University. Sheila Washington signed to play Division 1 ball for the Delta Devils of Mississippi Valley State after a season in which she made large strides in her game. The sophomore was one of the peskiest defenders in the league picking up 41 steals and 31 blocked shots on the season while averaging 6 points and 4 rebounds per game. Washington has been tabbed by her Head Coach Toby Wynn as “one of the most athletic players to ever put on a Lady Saints uniform”, high praise for a program that has seen a number of talented players go through it over the years. Liz Ginther will stay in the state of Kansas and go to Manhattan Christian College where she will play for the Crusaders and Coach Larry Olsen next season. Ginther will join a team who finished 5th at this year’s NCCAA Division II National Tournament and won their conference and regional championship. Ginther buried 19 3 pointers for the Lady Saints this season and will go down as one of the best free throw shooters in school history with a 92% career mark. Rosario will join former Lady Saint Jenny Head who is now an assistant coach at Valdosta State where she will play for the Blazers who participated in their 4th straight NCAA South Regional this season. Rosario was a strong post presence for the Lady Saints this season averaging nearly 10 points and 7 rebounds per game while finishing 2nd in the conference with 56 blocked shots on the season. This year’s sophomore class will go out with a 59-9 record in their two seasons while twice falling just inches short of the NJCAA National Tournament.
