After their season came to a disappointing end this weekend in Wichita, a bit of good news came the way of five Seward County Lady Saint softball players as Sydney Cicchetti, Jill Rodgers, Leah Sitter, Taylor McDougall, and Michelle Duford were all named to the KJCCC’s All-Conference team. Cicchetti was named the top pitcher in the conference and therefore on the 1 st Team after she finished the season with a 25-5 record, a 1.80 ERA, and 211 strikeouts, each leading the conference. Cicchetti’s 25-5 overall record is the second best single season mark in school history while her 44-11 career record is tops in Seward County history. Jill Rodgers was the coaches top pick at 3 rd base, placing her on the 1 st Team in a season in which she hit .378 with 21 doubles, and 66 RBI’s. Her 21 doubles this season put her one ahead of current assistant coach Abbly Bolton for 3 rd in a single season in school history while the 66 RBI’s tie her for second most in school history in a year. Leah Sitter was Seward’s third 1 st Team selection after the Lady Saints top outfielder hit .413 with a school record 35 stolen bases this season. She finishes her Seward County career with 58 stolen bases, putting her first all-time, 14 ahead of her next closest competitor. Michelle Duford was a 2 nd Team pick after making the most of her rookie season with the Lady Saints as she led the team in hitting at .416 and tied for the team lead with 4 home runs. She drove in 44 runs on the year which was second to Rodger’s 66, and was third on the club in runs scored with 49. Taylor McDougall was named 2 nd Team All-Conference after a freshman campaign that saw her hit .331 with 3 home runs and 32 RBI’s. She finished in the top four on the team in batting average, home runs, and RBI’s.
