KSCB News - March 8, 2009 12:00 am
The Seward County Lady Saints are one game away from going back to the NJCAA National Tournament as they defeated Cloud County for a third time this season 55-54 Sunday in Wichita. Cloud had a chance at the end of the game to win it but the Lady Saints made a defensive stand and didn’t even allow the Lady T-Birds to get a final shot off. The Seward defense also held Cloud to just 26% shooting from the floor. Vaneza Junior hit two free throws down the stretch to give the Lady Saints the lead for good. Amanda Pierson scored 10 points and had 15 rebounds in the win. Seward is now 28-5 on the season and will play Hutchinson Monday at 6 p.m. for the chance to advance to the NJCAA National Tournament. The Lady Dragons beat Independence 63-62 Sunday in the other semi-final matchup. Monday night’s Region VI Championship game can be heard on B107.5 and on kscb.net.
