After finishing 31-3 and Jayhawk West Champions last season, the Seward County Lady Saints Womenís Basketball team has been ranked 9th in the country according to the 2010-2011 NJCAA pre-season poll. The Lady Saints return only 2 sophomores from last seasonís Region VI Runners-up but bring on a pair of sophomore transfers as well as a talented cast of young freshman to try and help live up to the hype. The defending National Champion Gulf Coast Lady Commodores top the rankings with Central Arizona, and Casper right behind them. Seward is one of three Jayhawk West teams to make it into the poll as Hutchinson opens the year #17 and Cloud County #24. The Lady Saints will open their season November 5th in the Pepsi Classic when they host the Neosho County Lady Panthers at 6:00. For more insight on the 2010-2011 Lady Saints look for a preseason preview on the team coming out tomorrow.
