After a strong two year career for the Saints of Seward County, sophomore guard Robert Sigala has signed his National Letter of Intent to head to Washburn University where he will join an Ichabods team that went 16-14 last season under legendary Head Coach Bob Chipman. As a sophomore this season, Sigala became a fixture in crunch time for the Saints. The guard from Southwestern Heights averaged 6.7 points and 3.5 rebounds per game this season while also chipping in with 2.4 assists and 1.7 steals per contest. While Sigala wowed the crowd many times in his two seasons here in Liberal, his most memorable moment will undoubtedly be from the Saints early February matchup in the Greenhouse with Colby where he glided to the basket with time winding down to finish off a layup and get fouled to give the Saints a win at the horn after a furious late game comeback. When asked what he would miss most about Seward County, Robert replied “I will miss the people, the way they support you through everything. There are many people here that have helped me grow as a player and more importantly as a person and gotten me ready to play at the next level.” Although Robert is moving on to Washburn, this won’t be the last that you hear about the Sigala last name as in the fall of 2010 Robert’s brother Oscar will join Coach Zollinger and the Saints on the hardwood.
