A pair of Lady Saints wrapped up what should be the final awards of the season for Seward County this season on Wednesday as sophomore forwards Shanise Brooks and Korina Chapman were named All-Region VI by the NJCAA.
Brooks was a 2nd Team All-Region selection for the Lady Saints following a season in which she was Seward’s leading scorer from start to end. Brooks averaged 15.0 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for the Lady Saints this year, also leading the team with 2.2 blocked shots per game. Brooks was consistent for the Lady Saints all year long, scoring in double figures in 28 of Seward’s 32 games. She put up 20 or more points in 5 different games and reached the 30 point mark early in the year against Oklahoma Baptist. She was also a constant on the boards for Seward, pulling down 10 or more rebounds in 9 different games and snatching 6 or more 23 times.
Chapman was an Honorable Mention All-Region pick by the league’s coaches. Chapman was fourth on the team in scoring this season at 11.3 points per game and was second to Brooks in both rebounding and blocked shots with 7.5 and 1.3 per game respectively. Chapman started 29 games for the Lady Saints after transferring from Boston College last season. She had 19 games in which she scored in double figures and 9 games in which she had 10 or more rebounds.
2014 marked the first time in three seasons that two Lady Saints were named All-Region VI. It happened last in 2011 when Ashlynn Knoll and Mariah Lee were picked as 2nd Team and Honorable Mention choices.
Hutchinson and Butler led the way with three selections each followed by Seward County with two. No other Jayhawk Conference team had more than one selection on the lists.
