After a successful Spring Break trip to Phoenix, Arizona a pair of Lady Saints were honored by the Jayhawk Conference Tuesday as 1st Baseman Becky Allen was named the Jayhawk West Co-Player of the Week while freshman Jaclyn Wagner was named the Jayhawk West Pitcher of the Week.
Sophomore Becky Allen had another big week for Seward on their annual Spring Break trip to Phoenix over the past seven days. She hit .474 and slugged 1.053 in six Lady Saint games, drilling 2 doubles, 3 home runs, and driving in 8 runs. Monday against Lake Region State she helped the Lady Saints break numerous school records in a 29-0 romp, going 4 for 4 with 2 doubles, a home run, and 4 RBI's while also scoring 5 runs for Seward. In their final game of the week she was 3 for 4 with 3 RBI's and another home run as Seward snuck past Mesa 5-2. Allen's Player of the Week award is her second of the season, this week she shared the honor with Barton's Emilia Davies.
Lady Saint freshman Jaclyn Wagner rose to the occasion for the gals in green this week, winning both games she pitched in for Seward. Monday against Lake Region State she was nearly perfect, allowing only a first inning single in a complete game shutout while striking out a career high 10 in the process. Thursday against Mesa she twirled another complete game, this time knocking off the T-Birds 4-3 as she allowed just 2 earned runs in the win. The Pitcher of the Week honor for her is her first, joining fellow staff mate Katelyn Craker as winners this season.
Allen and Wagner will lead Seward into battle Tuesday when the Lady Saints host the Colby Lady Trojans for a 3:00 double header at Lady Saints Field in Liberal.
