Seward’s Brown Named to 30 Under 30 List

Brock Kappelmann - March 30, 2017 12:27 pm

Seward County Lady Saint Assistant Coach DeAudra Brown received a huge honor Thursday morning as she was named to the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s 30 Under 30 award list, honoring 30 coaches nationwide under the age of 30.

In two seasons at Seward County Brown has helped Head Coach Toby Wynn lead the Lady Saints to a 57-11 overall record, a pair of appearances in the Region VI Tournament Game, and one in the NJCAA National Tournament where Seward finished 5th this season. With Brown’s help, Seward has gone 39-6 in Jayhawk Conference play over the past two seasons, finishing 2nd last season and co-champions in 2017. Brown has coached seven All-Conference players in two seasons with the Lady Saints and has helped three players sign at the Division I level thus far. Not only a help on the court, Brown helped the Lady Saints in the classroom last season to an NJCAA Academic Team of the Year recognition with a 3.56 team GPA.

Wynn was very proud of Brown’s being named to the list, saying “what a great honor and accomplishment for Dede to receive this award. Dede has been a true pleasure to work with for the past two years and she has been tremendous in our player development and recruiting efforts. Her work ethic is second to none and she has been a great asset to Lady Saints Basketball.”
