Following a pair of Jayhawk Conference victories on the week, Seward County sophomore Axelle Bernard has been named the KJCCC Player of the Week as released by the league Wednesday.
Axelle Bernard racked up two more double-doubles for the Lady Saints this week, leading them to victory against #7 Hutchinson and Barton at home. Wednesday against the Blue Dragons, Bernard played big in the middle for Seward, scoring 10 points and pulling down 12 rebounds in a 68-63 upset win over Hutch snapping a 13 game losing streak for the Lady Saints in the series. Saturday against Barton she put together one of the best performances of her Seward County career, scoring a career high 27 points on 11 of 15 shooting while also pulling down 10 rebounds to notch her 5th double-double in the Lady Saints past 6 games. On the week she averaged 18.5 points and 11 rebounds per game.
Bernard and the Lady Saints continue to fight atop the Jayhawk Conference standings and will have a chance to make a big statement tonight as they hit the road to Garden City to take on the league leading Lady Busters in a 6:00 tip in the Perryman Center.
