LIBERAL, Kan. – The third-ranked Seward County Community College volleyball team knocked off Garden City Community College in straight sets, 25-16, 25-14, and 25-6 on Monday at the Greenhouse on Sophomore Night in its regular-season home finale.
The Lady Saints, who were 8-0 at home this season, extended their Jayhawk Conference winning streak to 53 games and stretched their overall winning streak to 15 games. Seward improved to 23-2 overall and remained in first place and undefeated in conference play at 14-0.

In the second set, the Lady Saints were sloppy and trailed 10-7 before getting on track and eventually overmatching the Broncbusters. Seward turned the three-point deficit into an 11-point victory as outscored Garden City 18-4 the rest of the game.
In the third and final set, the Lady Saints finally gave the fans what they were accustomed to seeing. Seward jumped out to an 8-1 lead and, this time, never looked back, burying Garden City en route to the easy victory.
