The awards kept rolling in for Lady Saints Mollie Mounsey and Joanna Grymek on Friday as the pair were both named to the NJCAA All-Region VI 1st Team after leading Seward to 29 regular season wins.
Mounsey finished second in the region and was one of just 11 players nationally to average 20 or more points per game during her freshman season. She was earlier named the Jayhawk Conference Most Valuable Player as well as the Freshman of the Year while starting all 33 games for the 31-2 Jayhawk Conference Champion Lady Saints. Mounsey scored in double figures in every game this season including a Seward freshman record 40 late in the season against Garden City. Her 134 three pointers made this season are a school record and 27 more than any other player in the league had.
Grymek finished fifth in the league in both scoring at 15.0 points per game and rebounding with 8.3 per game this season while ranking second with 3.1 blocked shots per contest. Grymek has connected on a higher percentage of her shots this season than any other player in school history at 62.8% while notching eight double-doubles. Grymek was also named a 1st Team All-Jayhawk pick earlier this month.
Seward was the only team to have two 1st Team All-Region VI players while Mounsey was the only freshman of 15 players named to the All-Region squads.
Mounsey/Grymek and the rest of the Lady Saints will begin their NJCAA National Tournament journey on Tuesday at 4:00 in Lubbock, Texas as they take on #6 South Plains in the second round of the tournament.
