For the first time in her career on the final chance of her Seward County career, Lady Saints setter Amanda Pereira has been named the Jayhawk West Player of the Week in a league release on Tuesday.
Sophomore Amanda Pereira saved two of her best games of the season for the final week of the regular season, notching double-doubles in each of Seward’s victories over Barton and Colby to help the Lady Saints to their first Jayhawk West Conference Championship since the 2009 season. She averaged 10.29 assists and 3.43 digs per set as well as nearly a block per set in Seward’s two matches. Wednesday against Barton, she filled up the stat sheet as she dialed up a career best 44 assists and 13 assists while also finishing with 5 kills and 3 blocks in the win. Saturday against Colby she played big again with 28 assists and 11 digs for her second straight double-double, chipping in 3 more blocks including a pair of solos for the Lady Saints.
Pereira and the Lady Saints enter the Region VI Tournament as the #2 seed and will take on Dodge City Wednesday night at 6:00 in the Greenhouse. Free tickets are available courtesy of our buyout sponsor Windtree Management at their Liberal offices as well as at Billy’s and First National Bank.
