The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has announced that the Seward County Lady Saints are on its list of winners for the 2009-10 Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll. This award, given in NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA and Junior College/Community College, awards teams throughout the nation that carry the highest grade point averages (GPA) for the entire season based on the nomination submitted by WBCA-member head coaches.
The Lady Saints check in at #12 on the JC/CC list this season after compiling a team GPA of 3.10 over the course of the 2009-2010 school year. Toby Wynn’s Seward squad was the highest ranked team from the Jayhawk Conference on the list, finding themselves just ahead of Johnson County and Ft. Scott.
“Congratulations to these teams who have excelled academically during the 2009-10 school year," WBCA CEO Beth Bass said. “Each of these coaches set an extraordinary example for their peers to follow by holding academics in such high esteem with their student-athletes" she continued.
