KSCB News - September 9, 2014 2:02 pm
If anyone had questions about how Seward County sophomore Thayna Silva would recover from a knee injury that cost her the 2013 season, they should be answered now and finished with an exclamation point. Tuesday, the Jayhawk Conference honored the Lady Saints outside hitter for the second time this season as the conference’s Player of the Week.
Silva continued her big run to start the 2014 season this week, averaging 3.82 kills and 4.55 digs per set for Seward in three Lady Saint matches. Wednesday against Colby she finished with a monster stat line, going for 20 kills and 24 digs in a tough 3-2 loss to the Lady Trojans. Saturday in a tri in Garden City, she was equally as impressive, registering 12 kills and 13 digs in a 3-0 sweep of Jayhawk West rival Garden City, following by another double-double of 10 kills and 13 digs in a 3-0 win against Frank Phillips. Silva currently leads all Jayhawk West players in kills per set with 3.69 and also ranks in the top 10 in digs at 3.26 per set.
Silva and the Lady Saints will take the court Wednesday in their home opener as they host the Dodge City Conquistadors at 6:30 in the Greenhouse.
