The Hutchinson Lady Dragons won the de facto Jayhawk West championship game Saturday night, and it wasn’t close.  The #12 Lady Dragons won their first conference title since 2017 when they defeated the #18 Lady Saints 78-62 in front of a big crowd Saturday night in the Hutchinson Sports Arena.

The Lady Saints, who had won three straight conference titles, trailed early and often.  Hutch led 19-10 after one quarter and led 38-21 at halftime.  The game did not get closer in the third quarter as Hutchinson led 51-27 and 54-28 before lead 59-40 after three.  The 26 point lead was the biggest lead.  SCCC never led.

The Lady Dragons scorched the nets at home shooting 49 percent and making 10-28 three pointers.  Seward did not shoot well making 36.5 percent from the field and 2-17 from three point range.  The Lady Saints were also out rebounded 43-31.  Seward had led the conference in rebounding margin.

Seward’s sophomores struggled going 3-21 for eight points.  Leilani Augmon and Tianna Johnson had 17 a piece.  Destiny Alston had 10 points and six rebounds.

Seward falls to 23-6 overall and finish 18-3 in the Jayhawk West.  Hutchinson is 27-3 and 19-2 in the KJCCC West.  SCCC had won two straight in the Hutchinson Sports Arena.

Seward plays Allen Wednesday at 6 in the Green House in the first round of the Region 6 Tournament.  The game will air with Saints Shootaround at 5:45 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.  If Seward wins, they play in the Regon 6 quarterfinals against the winner of Independence and Colby Saturday night at 7 in Dodge City’s United Wireless Arena.
