Seward's top returning player is out for the season. Anete Kirsteine is out for the season after an injury in a game against Mesa in Arizona Saturday. The 5'11" forward averaged 11 points and four rebounds a game her freshman season. Her 66 three pointers during her freshman season were the eighth most of any player in school history while her 46% connection rate from behind the arc was second best all-time.
This season, Kirsteine averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game. She joins Peyton Fleming who also was injured this offseason and will sit out the year. Fleming is redshirting this season and it is possible Kirsteine will also receive a medical redshirt.
