After a 25 win season and a memorable run at the NJCAA Region VI Tournament, three Seward County Lady Saints volleyball players have been named Jayhawk West All-Conference as well as All-Region VI.

Sophomore outside hitter Courtney Geesing leads the pack in a season as a 1st Team selection, in which she averaged 4.20 kills per game during conference play and 3.52 kills per game overall on the season. Geesing had 10 or more kills in 13 of Seward’s 14 Jayhawk West Conference matches this season and had 20 or more kills three times. She finishes the 2011 season ranked 19th in the country in kills per game. Freshman middle hitter Bailey McFerren was the top pick on the 2nd Team, averaging 2.29 kills and 1.43 blocks per game in conference action. McFerren finished the season with 1.28 blocks per game which ranked her 6th in the country while also contributing 1.99 kills per game. McFerren seemed to rise to the occasion against the best the Jayhawk West had to offer as her two 10 block matches of the season came against conference champion Barton and 2nd place Colby. Sophomore setter Marina Dias earned an Honorable Mention nod after running the Lady Saints offense to perfection after the team switched to a 5-1 offense with her in the middle of it. She recorded over 1,000 assists on the season and was third on the team with 356 digs. She finished her only year at Seward County with 16 double-doubles to lead the team and had double-doubles in 10 of the Lady Saints 11 final matches of the season.
Joining Geesing on the 1st team was Conference Freshman and Player of the Year Paula da Silva and Juliana de Barros from Barton, Elzbieta Klein from Colby, Shayne Haley from Hutchinson, and Emily Scheck from Dodge City. The McFerren led 2nd team also included Jessica Piper from Colby, Bailey Rush from Pratt, Cassie Wiley from Hutchinson, Sherri Darden from Dodge City, and Maria Bujanda from Cloud County. The Honorable Mention list included Dias, Paula Gonzalez from Garden City, Taylor Arnold from Barton, Ana Calito from Colby, and Tori Provincio from Pratt.
